Outlawed Terms

Terms I will outlaw when I become dictator-for-life:



"working" (a problem, as opposed to working *on* a problem)

anything with "izzle" in it, except "drizzle"


"issue" (unless it's a verb or about a magazine)


"da bomb"

"tragedy" (exceptions made for actual literature)



"Gitmo" (unless the speaker is acutally in the military)

"inappropriate" (appropriate uses have all but disappeared)
