A shade comes in many forms. A shade is ANYTHING that sucks the life out of a room.

Possible examples of shades:
Your bum-A$$ friendz/friend.
A bunk manipulatory conversation.

Rego-hurspray weed.

A barking dog.

Food-poisoning from that hotdog stand near the bar run by Carnies.
Ego-trippin ignor(ants).

If positivity was like building a tower of cards, the shade would be the thing knocking it down and eating your cards.
Man, that shade just spit in my holy water!

Damn, is that kid every gonna wise up and drop his shade? He's missing out.

Yo, this bud tastes like it's been shaded.

Motherfucking SHADES.

Fuhhhh that carn-o hotdog dropped shade down my throat.
