Are you ready? Here are some of this year's words...
"Shovel-ready" is a term used by governments to describe infrastructure stimulus projects that are ready to go now. LSSU says bury it.
"Transparent" is another government term usually used to explain something that's anything but. LSSU just can't see it's continued use.
"Tweet" and all it's variations describe the activities associated with sending others messages of 140 characters or less. LSSU would seem to think this to be some bird-brained activity.
"Friend" as a verb is a social networking term used when you agree to make someone your acquaintance. LSSU thinks we should unfriend this term.
"Teachable moment" is a condescending term to describe the art of "learning a lesson". Seems we've all had our teachable moment according to LSSU.
"Chillaxin" is a word that combines chillin' and relaxin' to underscore how "loose" someone is. I guess LSSU feels no one can be THAT relaxed.
How white guys do chillaxin'...
One final note. The funny thing about this list is I haven't used most of these words and already they've been banned. Talk about your teachable moment!
