Edgelord...

… seems to be a very overused word at the moment. When and why did this word become so popular?

Edgelord.

Nope, still sounds shit.

Never heard it till I saw this thread. Sounds like something out of a sub-Moorcock fantasy.

I think it's someone, who pushes things to the edge of decency; i.e. "a fearless iconoclast."

Usually an attention-seeking bell end, of some description.

Is it like a cocklord, or do I mean a cucklord...

"Only an Edgelord can cast the runes that will reveal the path to the Chalice of Eternity."

Or to put it another way: "hurry up and throw that twelve-sided dice so I can have my go".

Yep, what Sinner said.

It’s just one of those words that as soon as i heard it once, kerps reappearing. I blame millennials. And the internet.

Oh, it's a new word for "wanker" - why didn't you say so?

Someone made it up on Twatter.

I'm going to make my fortune marketing a wank-lotion called Edgelord.
