12 Words Banned for 2012

LSSU Facebook

Thank you in advance for never saying “baby bump” or “occupy” ever again. Ever.

Each year, Lake Superior State University in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan, issues its annual list of words that should be forever banned.

Check out the words that made this year’s list, due to overuse, and general uselessness.

LSSU’s website has detailed information on why each of the words made its banished-words list.

  1. Amazing
  2. Baby bump
  3. Shared sacrifice
  4. Occupy
  5. Blowback
  6. Man cave
  7. The new normal
  8. Pet parents
  9. Win the future
  10. Trickeration
  11. Ginormous
  12. Thank you in advance
