    Should English then eliminate all coinages? I agree that many of these expressions really are brutally overused and underfunded, but I think some idioms and expressions are great in the right circumstance.

    Paul Simmons and Gene Stanley

    noo-cue-lar

    referring to Native Americans as "Indians"

    automatically labeling any Asian as "Chinese"

    automatically labeling any Hispanic as "Mexican"

    people who think Africa is a country

    Does Deion Sanders still play for the Reds?

    How much does a blue seat cost at the GABP?

    Do you think Pete Rose should be in the Hall Of Fame? (No, absolutely not, STOP ASKING!!!!)

    Ickey Woods is the best Bengals running back of all time. (He only had one good season)

    Who is James Brooks? Was he any good?

    When Marty Brennaman retires, why don't you apply for his job?

    People on TV referring to snow as "the white stuff."

    Hearing that makes me want to drop a balloon filled to capacity with white paint on them.

    "I seen.."
    When talking about a conversation, someone inevitably says, "So I go..."
    "I done did"
    Any automatic denial, even after having seen the offense
    "freakin'"
    "Bob Sagett"
    "That's gay"

    Can you tell I teach school?

    As a teacher myself I would include many of the same phrases on my list. I would like to submit the dearly departed "that's wack" as well. I'm very glad that one has lost its currency.

    I just thought of another one: when people say "chise" instead of franchise. Seriously, that does NOT make you sound cool.

    You're right, but pink is an adjective.

    I usually do too. To me there's a big distinction between tweeking the language creatively and just repeating tired cliches.

    What bothers me is the increasing use of the second person with an assumed universal "you". For example, someone will recount some event and they say something like, "you see it happening and you can't believe it....."

    Yeah, but the same darn thing. It drives me nuts every time that ad comes on. It was the first example that came to mind.
