Out of all types of cringe-worthy material, the "badass guy/girl" trope is one of the worst. Some people really feel the need to let the world know how much of a badass they are as they use guns/drugs/have tattoos/are anti-liberal or are just plain mean. However, such attempts at bad-assery are usually cringe-worthy rather than cool to all those around such people. Here, we made a list of all the laughable attempts at trying to appear cool and edgy. Prepare for some cringing, then scroll down below and leave a vote for those that made you laugh (or cringe).

What the actual F**K?!?!?! My family has served in THREE branches of US military. They LITERALLY consider their job to PREVENT violence and death whenever possible!!! A good day is a day when US military presence is enough to thwart violence, when enemy combatants can be captured uninjured.

This guy is someone who most likely wanted to be infantry but was turned down by all branches of the military and Law Enforcement. You'd have to be a first class passive aggressive psycho to wear any of these shirts. Smh

Your job is to make powerful people rich, so yeah, you won’t fail at that. But you will lose every war you get into. You guys can’t even win after decades in the desert fighting people with way less military capability. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Another self-important jerkass who thinks that he’s somehow special because his only ability to get self-worth was by signing up for the military and being told what to do by a dick in an officer’s uniform, in a dictatorial, socialist, and politically-abused institution such as the US armed forces.
