Waning Lingo

Here is a list of expressions/words/lingo that has/is slowly waning from our current mode of speak. I’m happy that these things are on their way out and would probably be ecstatic when they’re gone forever. Ok, here we go.

1. “Awkwardddd” – Overdone. Overused. And nine times out of ten, ::whisper:: it’s not awkward. Congratulations – You’ve made this word a dirty whore that no one wants anymore.

2. “That’s so random!” – I hate teenagers.

3. “Don’t judge me.” said after anything even slightly nerdy.

4. “You’re wasting my time.” – Actually, I think this one’s gone. I haven’t heard THIS in months, years even. Nice work, folks!

5. Writing to things that have pissed you off in letter-form. Ex:
“Dear THING THAT’S CAUSED ME SLIGHT INCONVENIENCE,
Please stop doing that. K, Thanks, Love HILARIOUS PERSON.”

6. “Mad” as a substitute for “Very” – I think we’re almost done with this.

7. “Ginormous” – Let ELF be ELF and come up with your own new words.

8. Ending a statement – any statement – with a question mark. Ex:
“I think you may have brain damage?”

9. “Thank you much.” – This expression actually SOUNDS like brain damage.

10. “Fat guy in a little coattttt.” – Said by people who think this is the funniest line from Tommy Boy.

11. “What happened…?” When used to inadvertently ask someone to repeat themselves and in fact has nothing to do with what has or is about to “happen.”
Actually, it looks like this one’s gonna be around for a while.

And here’s an expression from the past that I think we need to bring back: “On the level?!” aka “Really?”

I’m also a fan of “What’s the big idea!?”
Yeah, it’s a good one.
