Which Words Would You Like to See Retired in 2013?

“Zombie Apocalypse” made Time Online’s list. What would be on yours?

Which Words Would You Like to See Retired in 2013?

You know the ones. Words that are overused, misused, shortened and created to become part of our dialogue each and every day.

Anybody with a teenager can come up with a dozen or more, we’re sure. Around here, I hear “meh” way too often. The kids in our house don’t say “YOLO” anymore; that “literally” came and went during the summer and we’re on to more “hip” words and phrases around here. 

“Hip.” That’s a word you don’t hear anymore. "First World Problem" is one that I'd like to see just ... go away!

Most of us don’t even know what the “fiscal cliff” really is, yet it has become a part of our cultural dictionary.
