15 minutes into the new year and NBC has Carrot Top on.
how very, very wrong.


The 2004 list of words that should be banished for "misuse, overuse and general uselessness," according to Lake Superior State University:



___


_Metrosexual: An urban male who pays a great deal of attention to appearance.


_X: As in "X-Files," Xtreme, Windows XP (news - web sites) and X-Box.


_Punked: To dupe, popularized by the MTV show "Punk'd."


_Place Stamp Here: Printed on return envelopes. (um, whatever. I think that's helpful.)


_Companion animals: Also known as pets. (That's an insult to my kitties! They are so much more than simple "pets." But on the other hand, "pet" is so much easier to say.)


_Bling or Bling-Bling: Flashy jewelry.


_LOL: E-mail speak for "laugh out loud." (yes, for gd's sake...)


_Embedded Journalist.


_Smoking Gun.


_Shock and Awe.


_Captured Alive.


_Shots Rang Out.


_Ripped From the Headlines.


_Sweat Like a Pig: The problem is pigs don't sweat. (I like that saying for that very reason.)


_In Harm's Way.


_Hand-Crafted Latte.

_Sanitary Landfill: Also known as a dump. (I thought there was a difference. eh.)
