I vote for any word that is the result of adding "man" to the front of another word. Man-cave. Mancession. Manscaping. Lemme mansplain this to you: it's annoying.

suthrnrunt: Bmorrison: OtherLittleGuy: List fails without "Mantua".

I don't get it, when I google that in brings up a small town that's about 40 Mi. away from me

urban dictionary it :) (at work and site is blocked so can't cut/paste or link) :(


Fun fact: If we're talking about the town in Ohio, it's pronounced "mant-a-way". No kiddin'.

And "tits" doesn't even belong on the list! It seems like such a friendly word.

For the record, "double down" does not mean repeat or reiterate, as the article claims. It means to take the amount by which one has lost on a position and to wager that amount on the losing position. There are variants--such as to wager the losing amount in another game, but on a different hand. Or to increase one's bet on an apparently losing position. They are all versions of martingale betting.

DubtodaIll: Never really understood the whole "trying to cull the expansion of language" deal. Do you not realize language is fluid and always changing? And if you genuinely have serious issues with the usage of the lower end of the zeitgeist then go buy some coal, stick it up your butt, and at least come away with some diamonds.


Listen Dennis Miller, nobody has serious issues with the lower end of the zeitgeist. It's just a lighthearted way of remembering the more annoying aspects of the past year.

You'd think a state college could differentiate between a word and phrase. "Kick the can down the road" is not a word.

KrispyKritter: "repeatedly the acronym 'yolo' is called a word. morans."

How do you feel about "laser"? At least you didn't use "anymore" to start your sentence.

I see the top two phrases they want to banish are the ones that remind people that liberals continue to spend insanely more money than we have. They want to memory hole "fiscal cliff" and "kick the can down the road" to distract you from the fact we're running out of road.

Greece has already run out of road.
