The always humorous and much anticipated Banished Word List from Lake Superior State University was issued last week in conjunction with the start of a new year. Nominations for banished words are made through the university's website at www.lssu.edu/banished. Then, the nominations are whittled down by a committee and released to the public. Without further ado, here is the 2008 Banished Word List.
- PERFECT STORM
- POST 9/11
- GIVE BACK
- 'BLANK' is the new 'BLANK' or 'X' is the new 'Y'
- BLACK FRIDAY
- BACK IN THE DAY
- IT IS WHAT IT IS
- UNDER THE BUS
