image for Obnoxious Words and Phrases Banned
What can I say...

Pahokee, Florida (IP) - People with good taste have banned together and decided to ban certain words and phrases which have become boring, worn out, and obnoxious due to their over use and mindless repetition.

"At the end of the day" absolutely has to be placed at the top of the list. Bushstapo psychophant and military has-been, little general Macaffery, was the bozo who started the all too popular phrase among talking heads during a TV interview at the beginning of the current Iraqi quagmire. Those mindless parrots who perpetuate this balderdash allow light beams to enter one ear and exit the other.

"Diva" is a word whose second definition means "prima donna" so in that sense may be appropriate in that it describes a spoiled and pretentious air head with bad taste in music. Most of today's "divas" can not read music and they bend every note in a tune as if constantly searching for the right pitch as they mis-apply gospel techniques to songs like "The Star Spangled Banner" and "America".

"Problematic, ramp up and rain event" are all tired phrases that are endlessly repeated by the Weather Channel who has gotten too big for its britches and lost site of it original objective to just show us the weather.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
