Banned Words for 2012

Living in a household full of teenagers and MTV, should it be surprising that I have become somewhat of a “syntactical scrooge?”  I am listing a few words that I think should be banned from everyone’s vocabulary due to overuse and general uselessness.  Let’s not get me started on a list due to misuse!

Words that should be banned for 2012 are:

“man-cave” – gross overuse of this word
“a-ha moment” – general misuse of this word
“sh**-cray” – complete uselessness of this word

That is my list.  Feel free to add to this list any words you might find overused, misused, or useless.
