1. swear word: You goddam shwaying shway!

2. pleasure: Oh yes, shway that shway hole

3. congratulations: Shway, man

etc, etc, so on and so forth

Expression of mild pleasure or congratulations. It is generally used as a reaction to either a statement or an event of some sort. As this is a word of mild pleasure it is general deemed inappropriate for statement at orgasm. It is also, sometimes used as an understatement when congratulating one on something if used in a sarcastic tone, especially if the event being congratulated is disadventageous or unpleasant to the user. (not intended for use as an adjective)

Historically, it is widely believed to have originated on the television show, Batman Beyond. However, some believe that it is merely a word that naturally forms under certain circumstances in all English-speaking cultures. Many people have found themselves asked where they heard the word, but have no idea where, and have not even seen Batman Beyond at all. Some even believe that the word "shway" is capable of attaining wide usage in english-speaking cultures that have never had contact with the outside world, given enough time. General these people are considered to be insane by the scientific community. Even more shunned are the extreme minority who believe that "shway" is not a word at all, but the name of a non-corpreal entity that is desperately seeking recognition through the manipulation of the minds of the human species.
Correct usage:
"Dude, I just found twenty bucks on the walk up to the loft!"
Other correct usage:
"I figured you might want some too, so I bought an extra twelve-pack."
Incorrect usage:
That was shway..."
Other incorrect usage:
"Oh my god! I'm about to.... Shway!"

corruption of the Chinese word for water, 水, pinyin: shuǐ ; describing something that is admirable; as cool as liquid; lithe; fluid.
Notice the how shuǐ (shway) and yet bold the curves in the metal are.

The water is shuǐ (shway).

That person is shuǐ (shway).

Anything that is jaw droppingly cool. Words cannot explain the passions behind its true meaning.
Clark: Dude, I went to the sickest concert last night.

Dick: That's shway.
