Lake Superior State University, wants to eliminate 17 words and phrases. This year’s losers were chosen by a university committee from more than 5,000 nominations from around the world.
According to the Associated Press, "Metrosexual" was this year’s worst offender:
Coined in 1994 by British journalist Mark Simpson, the term refers to urban, usually heterosexual men with a keen interest in fashion, shopping and elaborate grooming.The complete List can be found here.
But to Bob Forrest of Tempe, Ariz., one of many to nominate the term for banishment, it "sounds like someone who only has sex downtown or on the subway." Fred Bernardin of Arlington, Mass., asked, "Aren't there enough words to describe men who spend too much time in front of the mirror?"
UPDATE: Jen, at Reflections, asks, "how many do YOU use?" I confess that I have been know to say, "I sweat like a pig."
