    According to my brother, everything is 'awesome'. It's not though is it? HMV opening at 8.30 on a Saturday instead of 9 is not awesome.

    This ties in with my sentiments about extremes quite nicely. Isn't that AWESOME?!

    Lacking 'of'. "I went to the toilet a couple times".

    Lacking 'and'. "One hundred twenty seven".

    'Alternate' when used in place of 'alternative'. "The alternate route".

    Also, the fact that Americans pronounce 'Z' as "zee" when in fact it's "zed" - even Canadians use "zed" FFS. My problem is that these problems are spreading to lands that speak British English.

    +1 to every single point.

    EDIT: I admit to Leolian'sBro's one about 'awesome' though. It's probably my catchphrase.

    'Nice.'

    It means nothing!

    "Funky"

    Proper usage of funky:

    Country, do you know
    Just what I meant
    We just changed, we got
    A brand new funky President


    Improper usage of funky:

    Ohhh, that coffee shop is just so funky and charming.

    Fuuuuuck.

    I really do despise the word funky. It's twenty times worse if said in a northern accent though.

    High Rising Tone - it's something I studied at college. Typical of Ozzies to use it apparently and due to hysterical teenage girls watching these things, it rubs off.


    I pity you - if I had to study that, I would have been one of those maniacs running around campus with a sub-machine gun.

    I seem to recall (I might be wrong here) that the QI book explains that Xmas is actually perfectly correct. I'll have to find the quote later.

    I hate the word galvanised, when football commentators use it..

    "That team's been galvanised sice half time"

    So dipping a football team in molten zinc will improve their performance?

    Fuckin idiots.

    Football speak is incredibly annoying - one of the worst is when the pundits say: "When you've got the likes of the Rooneys and Ronaldos of this world ..."

    Funny, I wasn't aware that Manchester United had more than one player called Rooney. Oh wait, that because they HAVEN'T.

    Morons.

    People involved in football are also, by far, the worst offenders for the misuse of the word 'literally'.

    "They're literally hanging on by the skin of their teeth, Geoff."

    No. They're. Not.

    Another football cliche I hate - 'world class'. Firstly, it's over-used and secondly, it doesn't really mean anything.
  • Deleted user 13 March 2008 13:40:27

    Footballers always over-use "obviously" and "you know" in post match interviews.

    If it's so bloody obvious and we already know, why the FUCK are you boring us with your tedious, by-the-numbers answers?

    "Well, you know, the boys did well out there today and obviously, the gaffer was really pleased that we gave 110% ..."

    SHUT. THE. FUCK. UP.

    Most annoying phrase in football:

    "And joining us today.... Andy Townsend"

    Why, Lord? Why?

    From the same school of thought which means that it can't possibly be a foul if the defender "gets a bit of the ball"

    Problemo.

    its not street or clever. Its nothing just like the people who use it.

    Excellentay is another one.

    If I had my way I would shoot the kneecaps of whoever uses these words and then say:

    "Looks like you have an excellentay problemo there fuckface"

    I would then walk off and leave them.

    99 problems and being ginger is one

    "Cosplayer".

    A nice word for fat, sweaty gimps who like to dress up in schoolgirl outfits and pretend that they are, in fact, Chun Lee.

    No you aren't - you're a fat, sweaty gimp. Now fuck off.

    My flatmate says 'gowl' and 'modowl' (for model) and I want to punch his teeth in when he does. Other than that he's alright.

    The word 'get' in the context of people saying

    'Can I get a chicken baguette please......'

    NO, you can have a chicken baguette, but if you want to get one, you will have to come round the counter and get it. You may have one when I have made you one.

    / for clarity I don't work in a baguette shop.

    Don't make me angry. You wouldn't like me when I'm angry.
