Ok as few other words I would prefer not to hear shouted like "Allah ahkbar!" and "fatwa!".

Also politicians spouting off about "the American taxpayer", as though we all are so proud to be so hosed by our gubiment.

The words "tolerance" and "diiiverssitty" are mouthed entirely too santimoniously and way too much and are code words for some real modern McCarthyism, also known as correctness.

Keeper words from this years FARK? Funniest and most obscure is "fiddlienoo". Heheheh, 'jes laugh when I hear that one.

mr_bunny Homicide bomber is Fox News term for suicide bomber; they tried "islamikaze" earlier this year, but it didn't go over very well.

Random thoughts:

Any man who isn't a Budweiser-guzzling, fatass, football watching loser is considered a metrosexual it seems. Since when can we NOT care about our appearance!?

There are too many gay-themed television shows. Some of them are just pathetic.

Good music is easy to find, just avoid MTV and VH1. Find one band on Amazon.com and just follow other people's lists, and you'll find samples for all kinds of great bands. Go to other indie band forums and just read up. Its an easy ticket into discovering indie music. Even Much Music plays some good stuff once in a while, I'll give them credit (Sadly, they're gone here in USA).

Ashton Kutcher is farking annoying.

Old Navy needs to be destroyed. Their commercials suck ass (and Fran Drescher just makes it worse). Hell is a giant Old Navy.

Beyonce needs to fark off. She claims she's a Christian and how God speaks to her. Then she's dancing nearly naked on TV. I have nothing against die-hard Christians (those who practice their believe honestly), and I believe in God myself, but if you're going to dance around naked on TV; don't farking say "God told me it was okay to".

I hate Americans bashing the French all the time. Give it up. They could give two shiats less what we think.

Thats all I can think of.
 
2004-01-01 10:12:08 PM  
Yeah Ashton Kutcher is really really annoying. When watching "Punked" why does he feel he has to bellow half his statements and jump around like Bozo the Clown to keep my attention?
 
2004-01-01 10:14:56 PM  
I'm in a hate frenzy!! I hate the FAB FIVE!! Could you imagine how annoying it would be to have them nagging at you all the time?!! I'd rearrage their snotty hair with a tire iron! And that blonde guy is FASHIONABLE? I wouldn't wear half the chit he wears to a DOG FIGHT.

Wouldn't a homicide bomber be someone who simply kills people with a bomb, and a suicide bomber be someone who deliberately blows themselves up to do as much unspecific damage as possible to the surrounding area and the people in it and nearly guaranteeing the success of their attack by their willingness to use themselves as a bomb?

Just askin'...

BobC and FrankieBones: C*nt has already been co-opted, although not in a widespread manner, but I've seen it done. There are hats you can buy.
 
2004-01-01 10:16:52 PM  
I feel the need to add my own personal peeve to this lengthy list of verbal atrocities.

I hate hate HATE those cutesy little teenage girls who go around talking like toddlers to make themselves seem more attractive. All they're really doing is arousing closet pedophiles.

Sample conversation:

"Hewwo Kits! Are you going to the pawwwwty at Dewek's tonight?" *unnecessarily long period of trilling laughter*

"Ouuu! I don't knowww! Any hot guys gonna be there? Hee hee hee!"

"Maybe! Let's wear our matching pink sleepers and wear pacifiers around our necks to make ourselves seem more infantile and therefore more attractive to potential bedmates! Kekekeke!"

"O-tay!"

Someone kill me before this horrible affliction infects my brain.
 
2004-01-01 10:20:02 PM  
Personally, I would be happier if no one talked. Ever.

Fran Drescher (sp?) immitating Snoop in the stupid Old Navy commercial. Glad the holidays are over.

I don't know who he is, but he can't possibly be more annoying than GORDON ELLIOT. I think Gordon actually has a vagina. Like Phil Donahue.

I hate the word 'hoodie'
They were always called hooded sweatshirts around my house...since when has this word been used to mean a hooded sweatshirt?

Why do we call mobile phones, CELL phones in America?
Mobile phones make more sense to me. (yes, Im fully aware why they are called cell phones, but mobile makes more sense!)

The world 'cellie' for a phone is stupid.

That metrosexual quiz is stupid. That site makes it sound like metrosexuals are gay wannabes...

Yes, absolutely spot on. Homicide bomber is really less dramatic (for want of a better word) than homicide bomber. Think about it. Blowing yourself up for a cause!?
'Course, blowing myself for applause is a different matter.

>>Let's not forget Ryan Seacrest.

Have you seen that God damned commercial for his new show "On Air?" It makes me want to shoot myself. You can look anywhere on that screen and you cannot avoid it. The stupid crowd, his stupid little pitch, EVERYTHING.

DIVA is overused. Some words make me want to get an ax out and start chopping people's heads off. Diva's one. Bling is another. Fubu's another. First time I saw it, I pronounced it like "Fub you."

Metrosexual doesn't have me to that stage yet, mostly because I'm wondering if it applies to a person who has sex with an entire city. I haven't reached that achievement yet.... gimme time. Women only, please. :)

"African-American" is stupid. Guess I'm a "European-American." Wilson was right -- hyphenation leads to balkanization. We're all Americans, so get over it.

I'm for banishing the Reuters use of 'militant,' as in "Hamas militants." People who train for combat and engage in military-type operations are militants. People who believe in armed struggle against an authority are a militants. People who blow up random civilians in buses and shopping malls are terrorists.

Stud! You're a manly man! May I suggest some more contact sports like football? You can watch big, strong athletes sweat away as they tap each other's ass


W00t!11 I'm not a metrosexual! Although I don't think I'll be watching "big, strong athletes sweat away as they tap each other's ass" anytime soon.

I've never seen no Ryan Seacrest, but is the show more annoying than Hannity and Combes? You know where an drooling attack dog Republican engages in a circle jerk with a hideous eunoch Democrat, as if anyone cares?

Roseanne's wins. While they are both surely annoying, at least Fran Drescher's comes with one hot piece of ass to back it up.

I think she's groovy.

Tom Arnold. Annoying. I wouldn't take candy from that fat bastard on Halloween. He has the head of a small housecat.

My posts, like my mental health, seem to be in a drastic decline.

BobC, you've had a great run in this thread. Remember that Seinfeld episode when George decided to always exit a room or conversation on a high note? He would say something funny and then say, "I'm outta here!"

That was funny.
 
2004-01-01 10:48:39 PM

Personally I'd like to see fark (by which I mean the unfiltered word) re-aquire some of its former potency by a reduction in usage. It's not that I find an AK-47-type barrage of the word offensive, just offensively stupid. Nothing says "I have word skills so limited you'd better be afraid that I have the right to vote" like someone saying fark every other word. It's even worse when it's intercut with "like" as in "So fark then I farking like phoned the farker and fark he like farking goes like 'farking, what the fark?' and I go 'Like fark you, farker'" and so on.

Also, I dislike the verb "go" in place of the verb "say" as in "I go" "she goes". I use it myself sometimes but I'm trying to stop.

However, I really like the word fark as in f.a.r.k. I often use it now instead of fcuk.

It is litigious, not litiginious.
Most annoying word or combination of words on FARK denoting a previously posted article=REPEAT. Why would somoene who has previously seen an article even feel compelled to read the comments section of a repeat to begin with? Why would somoene also then comment that it is a repeat(and most likely be themselves redundant as 20 people above them have already commented that the link is a repeat)? If you are informing me that it is a repeat, I don't care because I haven't seen it before. So why would you waste your time telling the others who have seen it before something they already know?
 
2004-01-01 10:54:25 PM  
ruta: Yeah, I go "f.a.r.k. this" and "what the f.a.r.k.?" too. ;-)
