    'Amazing,' 'baby bump' among words added to Michigan school's banished list

    A northern Michigan school on Friday released its 37th annual list of words and phrases that it believes should be "banished" from the English language, and it suggests that some classic -- and perhaps hackneyed -- should get the ax.

    "Amazing" -- arguably one of the most overused adjectives in the English language -- topped this year's list of submissions, according to the university.
    "Banish it for blatant overuse and incorrect use ... to stop my head from exploding," begged Paul Crutchfield from Great Britain, according to the press release.

    I'd like to add "pwned" to the list.

    Makes me want to gouge out my eyes when people use it.

    Saw a different version of this story in a newspaper last night, on the same page as a story with "the new normal" in the lede. :c

    We need corporal punishment allowed for:

    1. "Know wut I'm sayin..."
    2. Pants below your ass
    3. Li-berry
    4. "Borrow me"
    5. Driver seats reclined past 120 degrees
    6. Baby mama/daddy/boo or whatever the fuck
    7. Assholes in general.

    If I ran for office I would propose forced neutering at birth by testicular removal. At the age of 18 you can apply for testicular reattachment. The application will consist of an iq test, proof of employment, and character witnesses.

    One needs a license to own some pets, but Amy fuckstick with a chubby can shot out a baby recipe.

    Also, after running bars for a number of years, I would like all humans of legal drinking age to subject themselves to a tolerance test. You would simply sit in a room with the test administrators and begin drinking. Beverages will be counted and behavior observed. For example after 2 beers you might be asked "How are you feeling?". The response could be "Great!". After six beers, the same question might be answered with "Da fuck do you care?!!"

    Aha! Six is your limit. That number would then be tattooed on your forehead. When out drinking, every order will be completed by the bartender stamping your head. Sic stamps then your cut off.

    Also, safe drivers will be rewarded with 3 no consequence slaps per year. See someone bring rude? Slap them and give them one of your 3 state issued coupons.


    Please look for my name in future polling booths.
