I replaced our water heater recently so it's funny seeing "hot water heater" on the list I lost count how many times I saw "hot" water heater for the last 6-7 days.

no more "fake news" ... so Staged News is ok then ?

CNN fakes satellite interview between 2 reporters in the same parking lot!

aww, something everyone needs and uses... I don't think I want to know why it's such a scary word these days. and I'm not certain I want to search, it could be something I find I've researched enough on stupidity. I don't know when it happened but I feel darwin award was banned somewhere, an award given to idiots doing idiotic things. but it is always an interest to see what they want to ban next, I can understand fake news, even though that dates back pre 19th century...

"Tons", eh?

Do we replace it with a new unit of measure or do we create a new unit for each different thing currently measured in tons?

Hilarity ensues either way

No longer being told to do the dish[es] or to unpack those crates in the basement is another plus.

Safe spaces, trigger warning, and cultural appropriation should have been on that list as well had they wanted to be fair.

Banning words are the best way to make sure people use them.


Northern Michigan’s Lake Superior State University on Sunday released its 43rd annual List of Words Banished from the Queen’s English for Misuse.


FUCK THE QUEEN!!!

Let's make this a new banned word for 2018. It will be so ironic.

I was raised in a strict environment and felt like bucking authority too, once upon a time. I would curse and get beat pretty bad.... but soon enough I stopped cursing.

The world is going to hell, at least online.

Im sorry, this must be a big deal, I apologize ...
