Some lists can be fun. Here is one from Lake Superior State University's (Michigan's smallest university, with an enrollment of 3,000 students)English department. It's an excerpt from their annual list of banished words. "Ba-a-a-a-ad words. Bad. Go to the corner."
The following was taken directly from the univerity website (http://www.lssu.edu/banished/current.php):
GITMO -- The US military's shorthand for a base in Cuba drives a wedge wider than a split infinitive.
COMBINED CELEBRITY NAMES -- Celebrity duos of yore -- BogCall (Bogart and Bacall), Lardy (Laurel and Hardy), and CheeChong (Cheech and Chong) -- just got lucky.
AWESOME -- Given a one-year moratorium in 1984, when the Unicorn Hunters banished it "during which it is to be rehabilitated until it means 'fear mingled with admiration or reverence; a feeling produced by something majestic."
WE'RE PREGNANT -- Grounded for nine months.
UNDOCUMENTED ALIEN -- "If they haven't followed the law to get here, they are by definition 'illegal.' It's like saying a drug dealer is an 'undocumented pharmacist.'" -- John Varga, Westfield, New Jersey.
PWN or PWNED -- Thr styff of lemgendz: Gamer defeats gamer, types in "I pwn you" rather than I OWN you.
NOW PLAYING IN THEATERS -- Heard in movie advertisements.

TRUTHINESS – "This word, popularized by The Colbert Report and exalted by the American Dialectic Society's Word of the Year in 2005 has been used up.
