shruggie (plural shruggies)
- (Internet slang) An emoticon denoting a shrug; particularly ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.
- 2014 May 21, Robinson Meyer, “The Best Way to Type ¯\_(ツ)_/¯”, in The Atlantic:
- As Kyle Chayka writes in a new history of the symbol at The Awl, the meaning of the “the shruggie” is always two, if not three- or four-, fold. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ represents nihilism, “bemused resignation,” and “a Zen-like tool to accept the chaos of universe.” It is Sisyphus in unicode.
- 🤷 (shrug emoji)
