PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – There are just some words you love to hate, and that list probably includes “selfie,” “twerk” and “twittersphere.”
Lake Superior State University has released its annual list of “Banished Words” for 2014, and those are just three of the most hated.
According to the university, “selfie” actually received the most votes and came out the most annoying word of the year.
“It’s a lame word. It’s all about me, me, me. Put the smartphone away. Nobody cares about you,” said one respondent identified only as David from Lake Mills, Wisconsin.
“Named ‘Word of the Year’ by Oxford Dictionary? Give me a break! Ugh, get rid of it,” agreed Bruce from Ottawa.
Other words that made the Lake Superior list? “Mister Mom,” “t-bone” and “hashtag.”
“[Hashtag is] #obnoxious #ridiculous #annoying and I wish it would disappear,” wrote Jen, of Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan.
