The Nominees for the First-Ever 'Bardagulan' Awards Have Been Announced
It’s hard to provide a dictionary definition for the word “bardagulan.” Heck, even we're not sure. But loosely we think it translates to shitposting, or a situation where social media users pretty much shoot the breeze and air their thoughts, often in a sarcastic or mocking tone, about a specific topic. It’s most often used on Twitter, where people often go on “bardagulan” rants to air frustrations, grievances, or good old-fashioned fury at the issue du jour.
Which leads us to the first-ever Bardagulan Awards aka the Bardys. Twitter user @itsyaboisatanas (their profile picture is of a winking satan giving the thumbs up sign) compiled some of the year’s most memorable instances of “bardagulan,” categorized them, and is asking people to vote for their favorites.
We’re not sure how, um, “satan” came up with the nominees—actually we’re not sure how he came up with the categories in the first place—but it does make for some hilarious reading. It also reminds us of the year’s craziest social media flare-ups and introduces us to some we may have missed.
Some people are already crying foul and have labeled this exercise an example of exploiting people’s past mistakes and misfortunes for clout and to generate even more controversy, but we don’t think there’s anything wrong with it. It's all in the spirit of fun.
So, without further ado, here are the nominees for the first-ever Bardagulan Awards
