The list

They Might be Giants had the following clever list in their weekly newsletter the other day. (You already knew that I am a geek, so it should come as no surprise that I’m subscribed to a geek-rock band’s weekly email newsletter.) I thought it was a good list and that I would share.

These are all things we are not allowed to say within the band:

too much information
off the hook
that’s what (s)he said
my bad
game changer
crackberry
that’s how we roll
I can’t work under these conditions
playing the (whatever) card
throw under the bus
drinking the kool-aid
LOL
phone tag
don’t go there
it’s all good
it is what it is
talk to the hand
think outside the box
off the reservation
oh no you didn’t
I threw up a little in my mouth
one hundred and ten percent
IMHO
no worries
jumped the shark
voted off the island
(anything) on acid
(anything) from hell
(anything) on steroids
literally (unless it’s actually used properly)

I might add “begs the question”, but that’s another matter…
