Thread: Awesome!

  1. #1

    Okay, Barrie hates the over-use of the word 'awesome', so what are your pet word or phrase hates?

    A few of mine are:

    'Lunker' and 'Lump'
    Every big fish caught just lately is either a lunker or a lump.

    Absolutely
    Why do people use this four syllable word all the time when a simple one syllable word, like 'yes', will do?

    'Up for grabs'
    Why does every competition you see have prizes that are 'up for grabs'? Take a look through any of the weeklies or monthlies and you'll find it somewhere.

    'A Shedful'

    'Getting your string pulled'

    'A big kipper'

    I've got more, but go on, let's have yours.

    Shedful is definitely my worst.

    "he was sat on a shedful"

    "I was haulin', big style"

    'Basically' Is one of my least favourite, as is appending the word 'Yeah' to the end of every sentence

    OK so Bold tags don't work then.

    "Beast"

    "The Beast"

    "Beastmaster"

    "Slabs"

    "Snappers"

    And a few others I can't think of at the moment.

    In addition to Graham's list (mine would have been very similar) my pet hate is in both AT and AM and that is the over use of alliteration:

    Terry Tames Tring Tench,
    Rik Rules Rother Roach,
    Bill Bashes Bure Bleak,

    Every week it seems these inane headlines in the popular press.

    Another pet hate:
    Try watching any video with good old DT and count the number of times he uses the word "situation"

    While I am in the mood, so to speak, why in the name of common sense do manufacturers choose such hideous names for rods and poles?

    The Annihilator, Grim Reaper etc.

    As if we don't already give enough ammunition to the anti-brigades, right?

    Boris basher Brian bags big barbel bonanza by banana boily ball in.

    Any advances?

    To be fair the AT has got better on this score.
