Swingers_lnut guard

noun

The credit on an actor’s resume that is so beloved it stops fans from wanting to actually kick him where it hurts after sitting through his latest stinker.


[Origin: After seeing Fred Claus, Mandi told her friend Karen that she wanted to kick Vince Vaughn in the nuts. Karen said, “No, you can’t. He’s got a nut guard because of Swingers.”]
