I've graphed it out. It would appear that my use of the word f*cktard has increased by 15% this year, aprox 400% over the last decade.

Wonders what's wrong with ping

 
It's only bad when there's more than one.

I like it when some store puts "artisan" on it and you look at the schlub behind the counter making it and you ask them who they apprenticed under.

I'm sure they people at the factory that makes Artisan pizza crust feel like MFing Gepetto every day at work.

Only insofar as sounding them out in my head after stumbling across them in some random article I wouldn't've otherwise read if it wasn't for this site...

/Credit for not being an "out loud" bad person?
//Still on Fark, though, sooo....

durbnpoisn: 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.


The list is doing a job. It's shouting out to the writer's contacts in her New Yorker, NY Times, NY Mag, NYU, etc., circle, who all keep one another working and websites content-happy.

/Notice that if you work with words for a living, you pretty much still have to be in NY, despite the internets.

zedster: moothemagiccow: Ping is fine in its intended use, but I knew this moron coworker who said he'd ping people when he finished an assignment, as a vague substitute for email or IM, and maybe even sms or a phone call.

if all he does is send packages at them and see if they reply it might be okay, the interoffice mail people might hate him for it


I'd just yell "Marco!" and see if anyone yells "Polo!" back, since I wouldn't know where to get a deep-sea sonar unit.

Arkanaut: phaseolus: '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'.

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".


I don't understand new hipster meanings, doesn't "bespoke" just mean "made to order" or at worst, "customized"? Wouldn't ordering a Whopper without pickles be "bespoke"?

SpacemanSpoof: Sybarite: What exactly am I supposed to call quinoa?

Delicious! Especially the way my wife makes it, with some cheese and Peruvian spices mixed in.

\She's Peruvian
\\Was eating quinoa before it was a hipster food



It's funny but it was actually here on Fark that I first heard about the whole hipster connotation. I've just been eating it for the past couple of decades because it made tasty dishes. Turns out I'm some kind of Ur-hipster.

Say what you will about old people hating on new slang, they are nowhere near as annoying as old people who try to use new slang.

A bespoke Whopper would have your own shape bun, meat blend, cook temp, trimmings, etc. It's your baby. If you wanted an ovoid 6-seed 9-grain bun lightly oven-toasted with a shmeer of horseradish mustard, veal/pork patty done medium-pink topped with elk milk gruyère, watercress and artisanal (there's that word again) mayonnaise straight outa Brooklyn, BK's Bespoke Department will happily oblige at a cost of up to 8x our fine quality off-the-rack sammichings.

/Now if I may, your inside leg please Sir.

8x the current 69 cent Whopper promotion would still be a rockin' deal for something like that.

/I know, it won't happen.
