Banished Words for 2013

TrendingThe phrase ‘fiscal cliff’ was clearly trending in 2012.

I’ve been meaning to renew my annual practice of blogging about LSSU‘s list of banished words but I guess I kicked the can down the road. Since I’m passionate about the subject, I doubled down on a recent flight.  Fueled by boneless wings (my Superfood of choice), I created this post.

The gurus of banishment came up with the following list for 2013:

  • Fiscal cliff
  • Kick the can down the road
  • Double down
  • Job creators
  • Passionate
  • YOLO “You only live once”
  • Spoiler alert
  • Bucket list
  • Trending
  • Superfood
  • Boneless wings
  • Guru

Banishing these words from your vocabulary should be on your bucket list.  They are a waste of effort and, after all, you (SPOILER ALERT) only live once.

  4. I don’t want to see “spoiler alert” go away. I read too many book reviews to risk it.

    Boneless wings! How about “solutions?” – The most-used word on the internet it seems…
