2013 Banned Words List

Last posted Jan 02, 2013 at 05:58PM EST. Added Jan 01, 2013 at 03:22PM EST
17 conversations with 10 participants

As compiled by Lake Superior State University, which has beenpublishing the annual list since 1975. Here you go:

  • YOLO
  • Spoiler Alert
  • Fiscal Cliff
  • Kick the Can Down the Road
  • Double Down
  • Job Creators/Creation
  • Passion/Passionate
  • Bucket List
  • Trending
  • Superfood
  • Boneless Wings
  • Guru

I, for one, am glad they put YOLO on there, despite the fact that the idiots who actually use it definitely won’t stop saying it until the next moronic tautology comes around.

To be honest I couldn’t really care less about shipping. I don’t get it.

It’s a long story involving the JohnDave Homestuck ship, both of whom are canonically straight. It got a lot of play the last few months, much to Hussies’ chagrin.

Did you even look at the list.

And god damn it MDF, why’d you jack my thread.

Yes, I looked, what made you think I didn’t?

Anyway, I’m not surprised in the slightest about YOLO, I don’t even know anybody who uses it seriously…

Really, the hipsters that make fun of words like YOLO, SWAGG and HASHTAG:______ are just, if not more, irritating than people who use those words “legitimately”. Like, I’ve seen kids who just way, way over-do it and they kind of become indistinguishable from the people they’re supposed to be making fun of.

Everyone is.

Except for the delusional JohnDave shippers themselves. Frankly I’m glad he put a stop to it. I’m also confused as to why this conversation isn’t happening in Homestuck General.
