    Another: things that are "made of" win or fail. No. They're not.

    I'm personally sick of the phrases/words;

    Fierce
    Price Point
    it's all good
    you don't know me like that - not only annoying but a grammatical nightmare

    If you've lived in the south you've heard this strange one.... "Take a look up under that hood, Bubba, and see if you smell smoke". This one has a double whammy... where is "up under" anyway? And how do you see that smell?

    Or, in Palinese, it would be "And how do you see that smell there?" As in "You can see that country of Russia there"... which apparently is the hillbilly iteration (or iditarodation) of "that there".

    And south of the Mason Dixon you can tell anyone to go stuff it, in the most obscene language, then follow it up with "Bless yo Heart" and everyone walks away happy.

    Dr. Phil's "How's that working for you?" That is so drippy with sarcasm.

    That one's actually kind of funny.

    Ha - there used to be a variety store around here called "Nannie's This 'n That". The post about signs reminds me of a place nearby that opened with the name "Simply Mulch"... they sold lots of varieties and colors of only mulch, and I thought it was a neat name. But then they began to sell rock and other landscaping materials, adding "and More" to their sign. The name just doesn't seem right anymore.
    Prism, I may join you in dreams of vigilante grammar graffiti, correcting signs in my area.

    As for buzz words, you guys have hit most of them for me. Transparent was the word that sprang to mind when I read the title of the thread, even before reading the first post. I think it's a good descriptive word, but too over-used at this point.

    What I am tired of hearing is "holla back", "what's the diff?" and "oh no you DINT!" (for didn't) Blech.
    I enjoy the escapism of reality television. Beats the heck out of worrying about your REAL life!!
