Question of the Day

Last week Lake Superior State University issued its annual list of Banished Words for 2013.  The number 1 choice for permanent exile from the lexicon was “Fiscal Cliff.”

Your turn:

What word or phrase would you like to see banished forever?

For me: “At the end of the day.”

13 barks and woofs on “Question of the Day

  1. I have to go with “The American people” when it’s used by politicians when they clearly mean those Americans that agree with them to the exclusion of the rest of us American people.

  2. And there’s the ever-popular “no problem” in response to “thank you” said at the end of the day. Or “whatever”.

  3. Banish the word “spree” when linked to some horrendous crime. A spree should be joyous, not tragic.

    So goodbye to killing spree, crime spree, murder spree, shooting spree, etc.

  4. I find that anyone who boasts of thinking “outside the box,” simply by virtue of using that hackneyed expression, has utterly negated their claim.

  5. “I’m good,” as a negative response to a question of whether I can get you a drink, food, or something else. What happened to, “No, thank you?”
