I’ve probably coined hundreds of words over the years; most of which were of dubious utility. But some (ok, two) have become commonly used such as “bullshido” and “fucktard”, both coined sometime in the early-mid 90’s. I’m not sure if I should be overly proud of the latter, but I’ll take credit for it nonetheless.
Having forgotten many of these ‘neologisms’ or terms I figured I should use this blog as a repository for them going forward, as they pop into my head. This category will serve as part dictionary, part repository, part shameful reminder as I’ll probably regret having posted many of these as they’ll be of little use and only apply to Internet culture in many cases.
Douchebagwork describes the videos people post on Internet sites such as YouTube, etc, in which they demonstrate horrible striking “skills” (in quotes because it barely applies most of the time) on a heavybag, pads, focus mits, or more idiotic things such as trees and wooden posts.
I’d coined the term earlier but applied it to this video of former Bullshido forums poster “Omar” who was essentially laughed off the site after backing down from a challenge by kickboxer Kat Johnson:
The term can also be used as “douche bagwork” or “douchebag work” depending on the context.
