Gunny Highway: Hipster.


I think there comes a point where terms like hipster, hippy, etc are just terms used to easily describe anyone a decade or younger than yourself whom you can't stand.

I think we should literally kill anyone who verbs a noun.

We should ban the word "word". Let's make this year interesting by using different letter-globs.

"Mommy porn" sounds like something a 5-year old would say.
 
2012-12-27 01:31:57 PM  
I've not encountered probably half of that list.

"Bromance"

FroYo - derived from YOLO, short for frozen yogurt.

They think "percent" is overused?

Absolutely.

Are you open to moving to NY? I would actually get others to help subsidize your living here were you willing to follow through on your convictions.

After 2012, I would just like to go a week without hearing or reading the phrase Eurozone.

Eddie Adams from Torrance: I think we should literally kill anyone who verbs a noun.


Literally.
 
2012-12-27 01:37:38 PM  
Here's one word that should disappear:

Reggaeton.
 
2012-12-27 01:38:38 PM  
We could get rid of the word bipartisan since no one seems to be doing it.

I always found this book pretty good at describing 'hipsters.' Like, the original ones.

What about ginormous? I get it. You saw Elf and enjoyed it. Let it go--particularly if you are over the age of 12.
 
2012-12-27 01:39:08 PM  
Words like "cray", "totes" and "adorbs" piss me off to no end. What the hell is wrong with people that they can't be bothered to say the entire word?

//Where are we going and why are we in this handbasket?

Jelly and cray drive me insane. Ugh. You don't sound "cool" or whatever using those words, you sound like a preteen.
 
2012-12-27 01:40:25 PM  
don't ban any words you'll loose half your vocabulary
 
2012-12-27 01:40:28 PM  
also, "attractivece" is NOT a word.

/TF joke

Manscaping

Any other kind of man/bro portmanteau

I agree with this post or suggestion.

CarnySaur: They think "percent" is overused?


They only want to ban certain percentages, specifically 47%, 99%, and 110%. I'm sure the science people would be keen on this.

They can take "zombie apocalypse" when they pry it out of my dead, cold, reanimated hands.

Good thought. We should network some time.

rmify: don't ban any words you'll loose half your vocabulary


And we can't have all those words running around freely, uncontrolled.
 
2012-12-27 01:42:34 PM  
Came for "gone viral", left sorely disappointed.

/shakes fist at CBC for turning that into a cliche

Agree 110%. Hate peeps doing that.

Been using it since Transformers- The Movie in '86

Thanks Jazz

How about we just ban improper usage?

FTA: it's statistically impossible to give more than 100% of your effort

Statistics has nothing to do with it.

Only in its fauxciological context.

then your handle should be "not your mother"


/says totes and cray cray but it is not like you are coming over any time soon so we good.
 
2012-12-27 01:44:02 PM  
I just want to know where "totes", "cray", "vacay" and "jelly" came from, because it sure as fark wasn't from the previous source of 99% of all slang in the last 20 years:  gangster rap.

Sounds like 14 year old girls (and the mommies that want to be them) trying to be cutesy and casual.

That said, looking forward to Snoop Lion's upcoming album, "Totes Had An Amazeballs Time On My Jamay Vacay, Brah--U Jelly?"  Should be off the hook cray.
