The Annual List of Words That Should Be Banned, Including Vape, and Break the Internet

If we REALLY want 2016 to be amazing, eliminating some of these horrible words and phrases from our collective vocabulary would be a great start.


Lake Superior State University in Sault Sainte Marie, Michigan just released its annual list of words that need to be BANNED.  It’s based on thousands of nominations from people around the world.  Here are their five best picks:


1.  “Vape.”


2.  “Price point.”  Because you can just say “price.”


3.  “Secret sauce.”  It’s overused in business to explain why companies are successful.


4.  “Manspreading.”  It’s slang for when men sit with their legs wide open on a subway to take up two seats.


5.  “Break the Internet.”  The stupid phrase for how AMAZING a picture is, that’s now being overused.
