Here’s Thomas L. Friedman at the 7th Annual International INSS Conference in Tel Aviv, on January 29, 2014. I’ll bet you no one else there tied their sweater around their neck like this, because no one else there was living in 1982.
From the Urban Dictionary:
When a person decides to wear a sweater LOOSELY around their neck, they are known as a sweaterdouche.
For those who don’t know, there are OTHER ways to wear a sweater.
1) Wear the sweater like a normal person. If you brought it, that means you should wear it.
2) Carry it. If it’s too hot then just carry it. It’s manlier and makes you less of a douche.
3) Tie it around the waist.
Steve was too hot, so he decided to be a sweaterdouche. He tied the sweater around his neck loosely, in order to show that he was fashionable, but still casual.
Eric felt like he could make his casual boaters getup more casual by sweaterdouching it up, adding a loosely tied sweater to his ensemble.
In the movies, it was a sure sign that the character was a preppy villain. In real life, it was a sure sign that this person made more money than you, and it probably belonged to their parents. They also most likely used “summer” as a verb.
Please send us a picture of Tom Friedman in suspenders, the colorful kind, remember those? And if you can get him in suspenders and a neck sweater in the same shot you’ll be my personal hero.
Damn, he really is a sweaterdouche. Look at the focused expression, the seriousness. What’s he thinking? I’ll tell you what he’s thinking: “Will I make it to the buffet table before they take everything away?” And, “Maybe another one, less serious, from my other side?”
You know something, please tell us your version of:
