Here is my small effort to help you start the new year out right by avoiding hearing, seeing or saying evil. It may be a little strong to call the words or phrases on Lake Superior State University's list of words (or phrases) that should be banned evil, but I have to agree that some of them have been a bit overused.
Lake Superior State University's 2011 list of banished words:
the American people
(I'm not too sure what's wrong with this one)
I'm just sayin'
(I have to admit to having over used this one myself)
Facebook/Google as verbs
(Don't we all use Google as a verb)
live life to the fullest
Do you agree or disagree that the words on this list should be banned?
Do you have any words you would like to add to it?
