I am in the ranting mood today, and "cringy" is my victim. Cringy is such a ridiculous word that spellcheck doesn't even get it. All I see is the word and angry red squiggly line.
Cringy is the new word to describe anything that will make you cringe. I guess Buzzfeed was bored with typing out the tiresome "cringe worthy", so they shortened it to the meaningless "cringy". What the heck does cringy even mean? As a derivative from the word cringe, I get it, but as a new word, it is meaningless.
The long and the short of it is these stupid, inane words have no purpose and no place in our vocabularies. Does anyone remember the annoying '90's phrase "whatev". Do you see what I mean.
