"indeed" only works if you're jaffa

I have 2 words/phrases I despise in equal measure

Fake News - When was it ever real or without bias, just means we can not trust any source anymore

Rape - When the word which can bring such strong emotions and is used so flippantly even used to describe a sports win that was one sided.

Alas they are only words and depending on each persons circumstances they carry more or less weight

Two words I see repeatedly in message boards but NEVER hear in conversation: methinks and indeed.

Ugh.


"methinks" should only be used during inner monologues.


Or by men in tweed with an unlit pipe in the late 1800's

"Worship". This one has irritated me since I was a small child. What's weird though is "warship" doesnt bug me. It must have been the church people the way "wershhhhip" sounded when they'd say it.

"Stick a fork in it" (this phrase is done).

"Amirite". Ugh.

"Doesn't" / "does not" / "isn't" / "is not". What nobody was smart enough to give it its own damn word?

"Republican" & "Democrat". In name only they are. They're not political philosophies yet they masquerade as if they are while warping what they supposedly represent. The words are annoying sounding though, especially "democratic" as if its the process of democracy they embody while they do what they do (rig the election process, work lockstep with the MSM to keep everyone deaf dumb and trapped in tunnelvision perspective of everything, insist on a monolithic arbitrary federal government, work for corporate etc special interests, set US up for inevitable debt collapse the likes of which history has never seen, sell US out to foreigners, decades of imperialistic military interventions & coup de tat's, etc). [just like the Republican Party does too]

"Dont waste your vote". Dont even get me started on this one.

"Antifa". Its a stupid sounding word, and they embody the behavior like no other what they claim to be against, anyways.

"Inclusive" (= hypocrisy). Diversity is a good word though.

"Free healthcare" / free anything else along these lines (nothings free).

"Islamofascist" & "Islamophobe". They just sound annoying to me, both of them. While we're at it add "Allah Akbar" to the list as well (see Worship).

"Middle East". Screw that place, Israel and the rest of them all annoying irrational drama queen tyrants over there.

"They're fighting over there for the freedoms we enjoy". Sorry, but WW2 was the last time it happened like that. All the rest since is imperialism.

"They attacked us for our freedoms" (9/11). BS mofo. Effing BS!

"Homophobe" is about the lamest way a word is wielded that I know about. I mean imagine some one bitching about capitalism, for example, and then the other person goes 'oh yeah well you're a capitalismphobe', and then in the next breath the person alleges that the capitalismphobe is actually a closet capitalist.

Pretty much any of the words related to the custom car import whatever scene.

Musicians that say their own name a dozen times in each song. Usually the domain of rappers, but not always.

"La la la cant hear you". Interesting how everyone when they say it they usually do the same routine where they cover their ears, close their eyes and shake their head. Maybe its in our DNA...

"Ignorance is bliss".

"the feels"

"Hamburger". It isnt even ham. Surely this is one of the most asinine words ever.

"Facebook". Seriously, I could never get past the name.

"Punk Rock". Being "punk" might be cool to some, as long as they never go to prison and continue referring to themselves as "punk". Even the connotation of its other usage isn't a desirable to be called.

We are in fact annoying others as we do not use words that irritate ourselves.

I'm a bit peeved I said 'hella' in an example sentence.

But I take full responsibility for my own actions.

I forgive myself.

Even if the thing was invented there, imagine calling a Philly Cheese Steak a "Philidelphia'er".

The fact that you must first hear, understand and process the word proves it is you who irritates yourself.

Okay what about this one:

"Homophobe" is about the lamest way a word is wielded that I know about. I mean imagine some one bitching about capitalism, for example, and then the other person goes 'oh yeah well you're a capitalismphobe', and then in the next breath the person alleges that the capitalismphobe is actually a closet capitalist.
