  • Amazeballs: "Equally annoying: crazeballs. No more balls, guys."
  • Sexytimes: "It’s sex, boning, doing it, or banging. But sexytimes? No."

  • Fashionista and anything "ista": "Fashionista. Stylista. Whateverista. I’m Boredista. Let’s Stop Thisista."
  • That’s what she said: "Saying 'that’s what she said' is the quickest way to ensure that no girl will ever say anything to you again."
  • I die: "Rachel Zoe burned this phrase into our heads—and now we wish it would die."
Click for the complete list, including a phrase that "is both a repulsive idea and a repulsive term for a repulsive idea."
