Naturally, I'm way too uncreative and lazy to actually have come up with this list; it comes courtesy of the Global Language Monitor. I have no idea who they are or what they do, but I'm relatively sure they've put some severe sanctions on Sarah from Real World Philly, whose declarations of "How dare her!" plague my very soul. But for those of you want to see these top 15 words in action, I figured I'd be a benevolent guy and put 'em to use in a sentence so you can get the gist on how to use 'em correctly.
1. Pinot (Sideways): Recently, I compared myself to a pinot to try to show
a waitress my "true self"; she suggested that unbuttered toast, being both bland and unpleasant, was a more appropriate metaphor.
2. Genius (Ray): The next film snob who tells me Lars Von Trier is a
genius is going to be smacked...hard.
3. Hand Washing (Aviator, etc): I've tried obsessively hand washing
for months, but I suspect I'll always feel unclean ever since my hand accidentally grazed against a White Chicks DVD.
4. "Mo chuisle" (Million Dollar Baby): In Million Dollar Baby, Clint
Eastwood was originally going to buy a robe for Hilary Swank that read "girlie tough" but since they were out he settled for Mo chuisle.
5. Gipper (The Knute Rockne Story): My theory is that James Brolin's
portrayal of The Gipper (Ronald Reagan), not pneumonia, was what led to his demise.
6. Neverland (Finding Neverland): Remember the good old days when
Neverland conjured up images of boys refusing to grow up instead
7. Antiquity (Troy, etc.): In the eyes of Roman Polanski, Lindsay
Lohan is probably an antiquity by now.
8. OCD (The Aviator): The portrayal of people with OCD in transparent attempts to win an Oscar is going to be the wave of the future. The wave of the future. The wave of the future.
