No-Jargon.pngThe phrase ‘fiscal cliff’ was clearly trending in 2012.

I’ve been meaning to renew my annual practice of blogging about LSSU‘s list of banished words but I guess I kicked the can down the road. Since I’m passionate about the subject, I doubled down on a recent flight. Fueled by boneless wings (my Superfood of choice), I created this post.

The gurus of banishment came up with the following list for 2013:

  • Fiscal cliff
  • Kick the can down the road
  • Double down
  • Job creator s
  • Passionate
  • YOLO “You only live once”
  • Spoiler alert
  • Bucket list
  • Trending
  • Superfood
  • Boneless wings
  • Guru

Banishing these words from your vocabulary should be on your bucket list. They are a waste of effort and, after all, you (SPOILER ALERT) only live once.

    I think we should add these words to SCN’s Inappropriate Vocabulary Scrub Machine. Then your blog would read like this:

    “The phrase ‘*****’ was clearly ***** in 2012.

    I’ve been meaning to renew my annual practice of blogging about LSSU‘s list of banished words but I guess I *****. Since I’m ***** about the subject, I ***** on a recent flight. Fueled by ***** (my ***** of choice), I created this post.

    The ***** of banishment came up with the following list for 2013:

    • *****
    • *****
    • *****
    • *****
    • *****
    • YOLO “*****”
    • *****
    • *****
    • *****
    • *****
    • *****
    • *****

    Banishing these words from your vocabulary should be on your *****. They are a waste of effort and, after all, you (*****) *****.
