May 15 Word of the Day
A few weeks ago, no one had β€œcheugy” in their vocabulary . Now everything is saturated with the word. It’s in our heads. It’s in our homes. Everyone is asking: β€œAm I cheugy? Am I a basic ass bitch? Am I GUILTY of being cheugy?”

The proliferation of cheugy in the mainstream discourse can only be attributed to one source: mental terror. It’s an orchestrated psychological trap to make you question your tastes and interests in the eyes of others.

You are not a cheug. YOU’RE PERFECT!!!!

It is very suspicious that the cheugy mascot is a Minion, a literal cyclops, a deformed
yellow panopticon in overalls ... do not let the all-seeing eye to control you. Be vigilant. Resist cheugy psyops.
Becca is another victim of cheugy psyops. I saw the garbage truck take all her Ugg boots yesterday. She even removed β€œI LOVE The Office!” from all her dating profiles. She’s unrecognizable.

A musical genre involving having modern songs reverse engineered to sound more medieval, primarily by replacing the sounds of modern instruments with those that existed in the middle ages. If the song contains English lyrics, the words might be altered to sound more like Shakespearean English. All of this is to make it sound as if the song could've been sung by a bard} in a medieval tavern somewhere, hence the name 'Bardcore'.
James: Like heavy metal bands like Sabaton, what about you?
