Banishing Paris Hilton & Drink the Kool Aid
From the Queen of the Cliché (me): I’m tired of the war on Christmas, the war on the middle class and the war in Iraq. I’m tired of the cult of celebrity too. How much more can I hear about spoiled little rich girl Paris Hilton? I care not. I’d also be happy to retire words like no problem, TomKat, buzz, hot button-issue, skills set, da bomb, drink the Kool Aid, liberal media and most of all, fair & balanced.
Check out Lake Superior State University’s Banished Word List, now in it’s fourth decade, and submit your nominations. They say they make the cut in late December and release the list on New Year’s Day. The idea originated with a playful public relations director.
I'd love to hear what gets under your skin. See. I told you I am Queen of the Cliché.
