I'm going to think of more, but it's not too soon to get started. What words or phrases should we ditch with the year 2008?
(Granted, some of these should've been banned in 2008 or earlier, but have stuck around like Owen Wilson in You, Me and Dupree.)
1. "threw up in my mouth a little"
or any of its revolting equivalents
2. "baby bump"
This has caused me to bring back the phrase "gag me," which was originally and righteously banned sometime in the late 1980s.
3. "[media, Hollywood, anything] elites"
4. "purity ball"
Let's ban the phrase, the events, the pretext... the whole creepy concept, shall we?
5. "beeyotch," "biaaatch," &c.
Quit it. Just... quit it.
OK, that's my first five. More to come. Add your own!
