26. "Crocs are so gay!"*
I think the use of "gay" to mean corny/lame/uncool might be a bit harder to give up. It was a staple at my middle school and early high school. It does kind of flow off the tongue, just like, unfortunately, "Czechoslovakia" sounds prettier and more flowing than "Czech Republic" and "Slovak Republic" do.

I guess we'll just have to go: "Oh jeez, that movie was so g-- I mean, lame!"

*Not knocking Crocs; just using them to illustrate a point.
