It’s only January 2nd and people are already sick of things! Check out the words people want to ban in 2013!

We’ve all had it with the “fiscal cliff.” The word gurus at Lake Superior State University have deemed the term No. 1 on their 2013 List of Words Banished from the Queen’s English for Misuse, Overuse and General Uselessness. The list, compiled from nominations sent to LSSU throughout the year, is released each year on New Year’s Eve. The second most-nominated word or phrase was “kick the can down the road.” Lake Superior State University’s 38th annual list of banished words:

1. fiscal cliff 7. spoiler alert
2. kick the can down the road 8. bucket list
3. double down 9. trending
4. job creators/creation 10. superfood
5. passion/passionate 11. boneless wings
