For the uninitiated, here is a list of the top 4 terms which are major infractions on my show:
#1 - the word "literally"
"literally" - I have been waging a holy jihad against the improper use of the word "literally" for years. I refuse to acknowledge any addendum to Webster's definition. Literally DOES NOT mean figuratively. Period. I also believe this word is over used in general, whether it is used properly or not. Just stop.
#2 - Shout Outs!
#3 - "in terms of"
"in terms of" (idiom): regarding something; concerning something. I don't know what to do in terms of John's problem. Now, in terms of your proposal, don't you think you're asking for too much?

4 - "at the end of the day"
"at the end of the day" (informal idiom): something that you say before you say what you believe to be the most important fact of a situation. Sure we missed our best player but at the end of the day, John, we just didn't play well enough to win the game. At the end of the day, what matters is that you're safe.

This is a work in progress. More banned terms will be added and updated as necessary.....
