1. YES!!!

I was hoping that "double down" would make it on the list, I am sooooo sick of that burned out fuse.




But some of the others... I don't see the problem but I don't listen to a lot of popular culture stuff so I could just be underwhelmed there.

2. Some tiny college's chief marketing weasel tells us what terms are now useless, overused or misused.

3. They need to add 'Red meat' . . .
