Phrases that should be banned (an occasional series)

1. “Om Nom Nom” –

it’s horrible.  It smacks of slobbering and eating with your mouth open with full mastication on view.  Stop it.  Stop it now!

2.  A “Cheeky” anything.  The phrase in general is fairly loathsome but particularly  when referring to the consumption of alcohol. “Just popped in for a cheeky lager” sounds like “i have no self control and a borderline drink problem, but I’m making light of it and making it seem socially acceptable and y’know, a bit whacky”.

3. “awesome”.  Unless it fills you with awe, you know, a “mixed emotion of reverence, respect, dread, and wonder inspired by authority, genius, great beauty, sublimity, or might”, don’t use it.  Awesome does not mean “good”or “cool”

4.  The use of the word “gay” to mean “rubbish” or “lame”.  I don’t care what you think.  Equating “gay” with “rubbish” is as offensive as the use of the word “faggot”, you know, those things you chuck on the fire?  So not only do you think were fit to be burned, but we’re rubbish too?  The BBC stated that “Gay people need not be offended by the use of the term”.   Well thank you BBC, thanks for telling me what I find offensive or not.  What would I do with out you telling me how to feel? YOu know what else I find offensive?   Miranda!
