'Wow. Just wow.'

I prefer a good old fashioned four-letter expletive rather than this namby-pamby phrase.

"Pornstache" (or is it "Porn Stache"?)

Normally said by those who weren't around in the 1970s and my God is it annoying.

The word "so" when it is used as an introduction and not a transition. No exaggeration: a quarter of my students will start their project presentations with the word "so."

"So...My project is on integrals."

"So...When you differentiate a natural log expression..."

"So...My name is Mark and I'll be talking about vectors..."

I hear it frequently on news and entertainment interview shows:

Host: "What are the implications of this policy?"

Guest: "So...Right now, the Republicans are divided on the policy..."

Overused on quiz shows, etc. "No pressure".

Also, "I like my football".

I always thought that was "porn stash", i.e. a stash of porn. Never heard it used as"moustache".

You are correct, but I am referring to the following, which is often mentioned in reviews of old TV shows but it applies to just about everything, like American sports:

"just saying"

That phrase at the end of something you've written negates your previous thought(s) as inconsequential and timidly made with no real conviction on your part.

I've only heard this once but took an instant dislike to:

"...somethin'-somethin'"

"I'm just going into a meeting", when it is obvious the person is not the high-powered executive he is making himself out to be.

Something of the last 18 months:"different than" instead of "different from".

"So" is the new "like" and both should be punishable by severe caning, and no flexible thin bamboo. A telephone book or pool cue are the bare minimum.
