A patheticly unimportant topic for Shorty99

Wuzzup.

Gonna make your quote subject for friendly, good-spirited-fun-poking conversation.



"It ain't braggin' if you can do it."

Sorry, but as "cool sounding" that is, it doesn't make sense.

People don't call anyone a brag when they're claiming to do something remarkable that they "can't" do. They call them a "liar."

And if someone is talking up something excessively, just because they "can do it" is not a valid defense from being labled a bragger, otherwise there'd be no legitimate application for the word, and as such would have no meaning, no reason to exist, and would NOT exist.

So, while one manages a remarkable feat they don't deserve being called a bragger, but if they do excessively talk it up, then they are.

Am I right?

So the only accurate way to express anything similar to that quote would have to be "it ain't braggin' if you don't talk it up."

It musta been one of those "so emotional it just came out that way" sorta laughs. Almost a nervous reaction.
