Banished words for 2007

A fine list from Lake Superior State University. Excerpt:

ASK YOUR DOCTOR -- The chewable vitamin morphine of marketing.

Doctors must love hearing that about 70-80 times during the course of a football game. There's an ad running now that says, "Tell your doctor if you have liver disease." Sounds like good advice.
Speaking of football, our nomination for next year's list: "breaking down" a game, or, as we overheard a guy in a restaurant tell someone recently, "I just wanted to break down my train of thought for you." Grrr.
