List of banished words for 2007

Lake Superior State University has once again posted it’s list of banished words for the new year. Last year they banned my nickname Dawg McCown, and now my friends can’t call me i-Frank or refer to me and my wife as Frecky… how disappointing.

Here are the words and phrases to be banished from the Queen’s English in 2007 for mis-use, over-use and general uselessness:
  • Gitmo
  • Combined celebrity names
  • Awesome
  • Gone/went missing
  • Pwn or pwned
  • Now playing in theaters
  • We're pregnant
  • Undocumented alien
  • Armed robbery/drug deal gone bad
  • Truthiness
  • Ask your doctor
  • Chipotle
  • i-anything
  • Search
  • Healthy food
  • Boasts
Happy new year, everyone!
