Shushes Working Overtime

Thanks to Lake Superior State University, we now know words that we are supposed to ban from the English language.

Some of the suggestions seem rather dyspeptic. What's the problem with "foodie?" Or "cray-cray?" And some do not seem as over-used as the folks at LSSU believe them to be. I don't ever remember encountering the word "curate" or "curated" in the manner the list describes.

I would like to submit my own list of words we ought to never say again. "Al Sharpton." "Rush Limbaugh." "Harry Reid." "Judd Apatow movie." "Rosie O'Donnell opinion..." This could be a long list.
