Lake Superior State University 2009 List of Banished Words

I saw a blurb on the news last night about this list.

I know that there are lists for everything; of course this list just makes people use or talk about these words more! Most will be in fashion for awhile & then fade into the woodwork!

Funny. They got a couple of my pet-peeves on the list. Maverick and first dude. Ha!

I'd like to add two.
1) "I know, right?". Maybe okay if you're under 14, but please...if you're an adult this is not a way to answer a question.
2) "Absolutely" I hate this one esp because I have an evil coworker who uses it constantly in place of 'yes'. It makes me insane when used repeatedly in a conversation on her loud speakerphone. AHHHHHHHH!!!! (serenity now)
