Lake Superior State University’s list of words to banish from 2019


Includes some good thoughts:

Legally drunk – Philip, Auburn, Ind., “You’re a little tipsy, that’s all. That’s legally drunk. People who are ticketed for drunk driving are actually ‘illegally drunk,’ and we should say so.”

Thought Leader – Matt, Superior, Colo., “Thoughts aren’t ranked or scored. How can someone hold a thought-lead, much less even lead by thought?”; Paul, Ann Arbor, Mich., “If you follow a thought leader, you’re not much of a thinker.”

but then:

Yeet, as in to vigorously throw or toss – Emily, Sault Ste. Marie, Mich., “If I hear one more freshman say “yeet,” I might just yeet myself out a window.”

Okay. You first, you darling little snowflakes. You all get selfies on the way down. 😉

Seriously, these lists were more fun before the righteous forces of political correctness took over. Then motor vehicle arson that wrecked everything. Happy New Year all.
