... what rock have I been hiding under? I don't recognize a single one of those words in the headline. Lots from the article, but those four in the headline make me think of eye disease, Red Dwarf, urinals and Seth Rogen in a remake of Hackers.

'sokay. Since it made it onto the list in tfa, I'm sure everyone's "so over" the word artisanal anyway. Next month we'll all be shopping for 'bespoke sourdough loaves'.

I hate most of the slang being used nowadays, but is that because I'm getting old or because it sucks?
 
2012-12-19 03:16:20 PM
If you wrote a whiny article about words you don't like, then you are a bad person and you should feel bad.
 
/That reads like high school girls complaining about people they don't like at school.

And for those of you who use "frenemy", there is a whole 'nother level of feeling bad reserved for you

If you've used one of those terms, you deserve a boot to the head.

There's an article submitted earlier today that used the word "meggings", go make that person feel bad.

I had someone toss "meggings" at me in a Fark gun thread about three hours ago.

These are kind of funny.

There's really only one term that should get you sent to the unholy fires of hell for all eternity: foodie

I want to find the person who coined the term "tween" and kick them in the yambags. That is all.

TLDR. I made it as far as the Bs, and I almost fell asleep.

Tips for the author. Be quick and short with lists that are this long. Be funnier, Make shorter lists.

Heh. I was just noticing the other day that this company that I always hear on the radio talking about their "bespoke wood flooring" changed their blurb to "custom wood flooring".

the question you need to ask yourself is are you just a run of the mill nerdy programmer or are you a BROGRAMMER? who can crush code and mix it up all the same?

Sybarite: What exactly am I supposed to call quinoa?


Poor people food marketed to over indulgent yuppie-types as the latest greatest health food.
 
2012-12-19 04:15:20 PM
I was watching some stupid horror movie from the late 90s and the "goth alterna-chick bad girl" character played by the actress who married Tom Cruise I think said this a lot:

"Razor," used kind of like "cool" or "copacetic".

Never heard that before and I wonder if some older screenwriter just made it up to make her sound more "alterna"
 
2012-12-19 04:15:44 PM
Meggings are for swaggots.
 
2012-12-19 04:15:59 PM
As somebody with a career in marketing, I tend not to use bullsh*t terms made up by marketing types.

Sybarite: What exactly am I supposed to call quinoa?


Peruvian barley.

/just made that up
 
2012-12-19 04:17:49 PM
Man... most of the people in my facebook circle are college educated and prideful literate snobs. The only time I see words like that used is with a healthy dose of sarcasm or irony.
 
2012-12-19 04:19:40 PM

The Documentation provided within the presented article is a quality demonstration of the synergistic benefits of leveraging a diverse vocabulary to follow best-practices and establish a fully win-win paradigm within the larger culture of the enterprise.

I remember when I was in Philly at a Drexel graduation party in 2002 and this kid says to me "We are going to flame some oat and listen to the D".
 
I did not know if this was a deviant sex act I was being invited to partake in or perhaps an inner city equivalent to snip hunting.
 
Turns out it mean smoke some weed and listen to Dave Mathews.
 
I did not, and never will "flame oat" with "D" fans, nor listen to D while high, or sober for that matter.
 
2012-12-19 04:29:11 PM
Wearing meggins is totes cray, but YOLO!
 
2012-12-19 04:32:06 PM
Even worse than all of those: "swagest".

/Pronounced "swagg-est"... even though it only has one 'g'!
