Swag has actually been around long before hashtags were just pound signs. Grab your coolest Ray-Bans, put on your favorite Justin Bieber song and get your swagger back with this weeks newest episode of Bongo Bongo. #swag

What's Bongo Bongo about?

Bongo Bongo is a show named after the linguistics term for imaginary languages. It takes a look at the history of English-language words, each episode focusing on one word dissected by comedic, knowledgeable host/writer Ethan Fixell
( http://youtube.com/EthanFixell). He digs up the word's unique and oftentimes humorous origins and turns it all into wildly entertaining, fast-paced lessons that spread an infectious love of language.
