Friday Fun: 2011 Banned Words List

So we can ban words and not books. . .

I guess that’ll just take longer.

These Words Are Now Banned from the English Language

“Every year Lake Superior State University bans a bunch of words and phrases from the English language for good. They just released their list today and, I must say, it is amazing. Oh wait, we can’t say “amazing” anymore.”

  • Shared Sacrifice
  • Occupy
  • Blowback

I feel guilty for using some of these.
