Banished Words

I can’t resist this. Lake Superior State University’s annual list of banished words is out. The 2009 version can be found here. The accompanying story is here.  

The list includes words repeated so often that hearing them makes me feel like I just bit into aluminum foil. I especially hate staycation, maverick, and first dude.
