    I hate it when someone refers to someone else as “hippy dippy.” You get a free pass to the front of the choke slam line in my book. And it’s a long line.

    i hate the transformation of a noun into an adjective via the (pseudo)suffix -wise. i mean, i love ‘is it luck’ blogwise, but not tablewise, since it doesn’t have 4 legs, which is important supportwise.

    and of course, the worst joke schema in any language is ‘x called. it wants its y back.’

      Commentwise, you’re doing a pretty good job, Jojo, but someone sort of relevant called. He wants his something sort of relevant to one of your shortcomings back.

    on the other hand, longtime listener firstime caller at least implies paying attention and patience. that’s not so bad, given that ‘never listens, always yelling’ seems to be the more popular approach to political discourse these days.

    Between you and I, I would of submitted “irregardless”, but got scooped, a common phenomena.

    As someone in Hollywood, I will have to submit ‘family friendly.’ What the hell does that even mean?

    I also hate it when critics of modern horror films within the industry call them ‘torture porn.’ I think it reveals more about the critics than it does about the films.
