Swogen, or sometimes swogenleg, is the Norwegian word for a limp, but it can also refer to a clubfoot. For whatever reason, the word is now being used in Montgomery County, MD to describe guys who drop their friends for new girlfriends. Apparently, swogen is an insult in Norway, where people who appear weak are looked down upon, and it now refers to the person's character. There is a large Norway population in Montgomery County because of the embassy in Washington D.C. which, presumably, is why the word is so commonly used. Now, the forgotten friends are known as swogenhaters.
Person 1: Dude, where is Person 3?
Person 2: He's with his girlfriend tonight, dude.
Person 1: For real? What a swogen?!

A cross between a Swede and an Australian. A Swedish person, typically a blonde female, who has migrated or moved from Sweden to Australia, and rapidly adapting to the Australian culture and way of life. Not living here for very long, they begin to believe they are 100% Australian, talking typical Australian slang, vocabulary and accent, and begin to call Australia "Home".
Me: "This Swede the other night was talking full Aussie accent and saying how Australia is home."

You: "Man, such a Swogen!"
