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).

This is some of the worst text flow on a shirt I’ve seen. Why are so many of these clichéd American conservative attitude shirts full of shitty text flow and bad design? Too many different fonts and decorations around the text.

Can someone provide a translation of what it says in Arabic? Given that Arabic is written from the right to the left, it seems odd that "100" is where it is ... (I'd love it to read: 'I'm a dumb-ass who do not know what it says")

Actually it reads the same as in English, with a couple of spelling mistakes though. Personally I prefer your translation 🙂
