Top Ten Dumbest Slang Words

The Top TenXW


It actually means "Secretly We Are Gay". It was used in the 60's.

It's just stupid. The "word" just came out of the blue,
And now every stupid white 13 year old is saying it in in every
Possible context. "Swag this, swag that, look at my swag! " It's
Completely ridiculous.

Sorry but, Swag and swagger is the only word out of the ten words that seem to piss me off every time I hear it, and I'm not joking when I say it literally makes me grind my teeth when I hear it.

I don't know, or care why, but hell
It's my opinion right?

That is Stupid.

Yolo is suppost to teach you to enjoy life before you die. Now its an excuse to be an idiot. I hate my generation so much now..

First of all, this acronym can REALLY offend some religious people. Or just annoy em. Which you do not wanna do. Second, it is overused so much. It's rarely funny except in a few movies or YouTube videos. - iiKyodaiKickz

You Only Live Once. So at least one time in your life, scream YOLO in your house, your office, you're school, maybe your funeral. And laugh. You only live once, might as well use this word and emphasize your desire to live and make others hate you. It won't matter once you reach the underground. :P

No just no, I just can't stand that word and its use over and over and over and over and over and over again and again and again and again... Kmn (kill me now) should come straight after Yolo intact with so much of its use just replace it..

It only makes me want to prove it... - DieGedankenSindFrei

This is so annoying when someone calls you that on a game when you first start playing, everyone was new at the game sometime, THIS PISSES ME OFF! - dragon13304

Don't mind somebody when he/they call you noob. They are only envious - ronluna

Only low life nerds that live with there mother use this - anthonybecerra831

A funny word when you think about it. Like someone else said, people only use this as a dumb insult when they're envious or want to make you feel bad when you start out so they can feel better about themselves. One time, I was playing roblox and this guy told the person who beat him "noob" Makes no sense whatsoever. - TheAlbinoWolf

it's stupid how some guys use this word, if they don't like something, they say "that's gay"; I am tired of watching comments like "metalcore is gay" - rock2metal

1. Gay shouldn't even have insulting connotations. Because someone being gay is NOT a reason to a) be ashamed and b) cause any upheaval at all. People should finally accept that there's no one good way to love any other human being.
2. People who do use it as an insult are massive poopieheads!
3. Word!

The actual definition of gay means being happy and carefree. The version everyone uses is slang.

Heterosexual people are very happy people, indeed. - Music_Lover123

This word is so overused by everyone. "She ratchet! " "That outfit is ratchet! " WHERE DID THIS WORD COME FROM? It sounds stupid, it sounds ugly, words can't describe how much I despise this word.

First heard in my classroom. Yes folks it is a mispronunciation of the word wretched. Every time I hear this word I become severely agitated by the promulgation of stupidity.

How is this not the #1 spot? The first time I heard this I was completely confused. I was trying to figure out how said girl was like a tool I use on a daily basis. Hearing this makes me not want to live on this planet anymore.

Rolled my eyes so hard I think they are stuck staring at my brain (where the word ratchet is stored away in it's virtual semantic toolbox where it belongs)

If its so offensive to blacks then why do they constantly use it in music, television and movies. - egnomac

It's horrible and racist, and yet some idiots think they can say it because it was used by some stupid rapper.

This word is the worst propaganda I have ever heard! It is utterly racist and makes people seem less than human. - LostDream258

The reason why black people use it in their music is because I think they are trying to claim it. Also if you were disabled and another disabled person was making fun of you it wouldn't be as offensive as a non disabled person making fun of you. I'm black but if I had an argument with another black person and they called me this I would be offended.

When I was young, a shorty was just a bit of a teasing nickname for parent/grandparents/whatever adults to call their kids/relatives/whatever. Now it's apparently a nickname for your girlfriend? It's usually said by the whitest of white boys, too (looking at you, Bieber! ) I understand that it's a word not intended for me, but come on. Do you really think your girl appreciates being called short? What if she's taller than you (looking at you AGAIN, Bieber! )

I don't get it either. It started as some regional slang for Atlanta rappers and everyone jumped on the bandwagon apparently. I know slang doesn't need to make sense but "shawty" is just ridiculous.

way overused only should be used if they are called shorty. Why is it used so much in music

Who cares if I'm short, at least I'm not a fatty

I couldn't find 'Brap' so I settled with this one.
Someone called me this once and I almost smacked him because I thought he said homo.

This word is WAY over-the-top overused. It's an old way to address people who are in your gang (I hope you're not in one) or people you are acquainted with. Again, a stupid word that if it should every be included in a proper dictionary a red light will flash in my brain signaling "END OF WORLD! "

This word is so stupid and now everyone is saying it there is no place I can get away from it this word is an insult

I thought this was a nickname marge called homer

Simply Dope This word is so overused by everyone. "simply dope! " "That outfit is simply dope" WHERE DID THIS WORD COME FROM? It sounds stupid, it sounds ugly, words can't describe how much I despise this word

This word is supposed to be used describe people with tin foil IQ's.

It originally was another word for Marijuana. People on the street would say it, so kids and teenagers started saying it to sound "cool".

At first, I thought it meant something is bad...

It gets really annoying people say it because they are to lazy to say crazy its not that hard

I hate this word its not Cray-Cray it's Crazy! I think this is more offensive to insane people than "retarded". Thumbs up if you agree ( but you don't have to) - MusicalPony

This needs to be way higher on the list of dumb words. Just saying!

The fact that all the newsreaders started saying this really got me annoyed.

ive never even heard of this word but it just sound so annoying - kumo9

I don't know WHAT this means, and quite frankly, I don't care. A lot of people have that word that grates on their nerves. Some don't like the word "poop", can't stand the word "flesh", etc. "Hootie" is the PERFECT combination of sound to instantly piss me off.

I have never even heard of this tragedy, yet it compels me to hatred so strongly. I hate all the words on here, accept groovy, which is just... great! - QuarantineGames

I watched a season of Top Chef once, and had to turn it off because of some stupid middle aged black hipster who kept shouting, "Hootie hootie ho! " for some reason. I wanted to punch her.

This is/used to be an actual African word meaning Brother. Now everybody messed this word up.

Bruh is so annoying everyone sounds stupid saying it but I don't know y people still say it

What is the purpose of this word exactly? Is it a shortened version of bro? No. Is it used to make "bro" cooler? Maybe. Is it making "bro" sound cooler? NO. Is it stupid and worthless? Yes.

I used to use this ALL THE TIME...I regret it - TheAlbinoWolf

It's the Danish word for poop. Try replacing it with poop.

"Hey poop. Wanna meet at the movies tonight? "

Go ahead, I dare you to try it. - Turkeyasylum

BAE, your my BAE, what happened to just saying girlfriend or boyfriend

I think this may be my all time least favorite word... It essentially bastardizes love by shortening the phrase "Before anyone else" into a three word one syllable piece of text slang! If you actually care about your significant other try saying something that takes a little more effort to say than you're obviously giving your relationship

Lazy bastards

This word is stupid. Even though it was invented around 2012 - Harri666

Stupid word and dance move. What kind of girl would twerk? It's so degrading to women. - SammySpore

How is it degrading? It's just booty-shaking, men can do it too. It's one thing to be annoyed by the term, but saying it's "degrading" is ridiculous - mtndewlord

A stupid jungle bunny dance move that no self respecting girl would make. And an equally stupid word for it.

It's just good old fashion booty-shaking lol - mtndewlord

A lot of this I can see, however slang like word, that or Holmes is to me an homage to 90's rap. Which I actually find culturally significant. Is rap as skilled of an art as writing and mastering a symphony or metal song, no. But it still required skill to make and sell and is basically the first music to get so mainstream that unlike music before it began to transcend skin colour and ethnenticity later in its vogue per say. As silly as the words left over from rap may seem to me they mark a more tollerant North America... WORD!

THIS JUST ANNOYS ME SO MUCH. I was reading this book and the person said Word like in every sentence and finally I just decided I couldn't read the book since she said it every 2 friggin' seconds!

Completely meaningless, why would you say it if you don't have anything to say. If you want to say something, just say it, saying "word" has no meaning, so don say anything. - HarCher

It's got a retro feel to it, not annoying in the slightest - mtndewlord

Correct uses of this word:
"Like" used as a verb:
- I like potatoes.
- Do you like video games as much as I do?
"Like" used as a preposition:
- He wants to be like Tim Tebow.
- I am sick of being treated like a child.
"Like" used as a conjunction:
- I felt like I was kicked in the shins.

Incorrect uses of this word:
"Like" as a meaningless filler:
- I, like, want to, like, go to the, like, movies.
"Like" in the place of "said":
- My teacher was like, "In the Stone Age, people were hominids. "

It isn't in the place of 'said'. It's when you're paraphrasing. She could have said "I believe that homo sapiens the superior animal." If you're directly quoting, you'd say "And she said, 'I believe that Homo sapiens are the superior animal. '" Whereas, if you're paraphrasing, you'd say "And she was like 'Humans are the best. '"

This is pretty obvious. - Aeterna

Like is an annoying word that is said by preppy teenage girls. This one girl at my school sounds like this " like didja like see Miley Cyrus she was so like awesome and pretty. And her songs are like totally cool and if you hate her your like totally not cool"

'Duh' is almost as bad as 'like'. I despise hearing kids say this all the time. It's ridiculous. I imagine all those blank spaces in-between thoughts in their head and they fill them up with all those 'likes' and such, oh my goodness how annoying! And you would think they wouldn't have any 'like' on online posts - nope! (oh yeah so like I went trick or treating and it was like yeah awesome so yeah. )

Bae mean poop in Danish and since it not a word any were else it just means poop so every body call you girlfriend/boyfriend poop

I rember when DMX was real popular and used to say this in all his songs, so naturally everyone started sayin it and wont stop - Chris-1

It's quite classic - mtndewlord

The word is "that" its really not that difficult to say.

"is" "that" "the"... Is it so effing hard to pronounce and to spell things intelligently?!?

I truly don't believe that half the people who type this word on the internet would actually SAY it like this if they were speaking the sentence out loud.

This annoys me, its just an attempt to sound edgy or cute by being too lazy to use the "th"

V28 Comments

it annoys me when people use this word like 'duh, eww I hate it, duh you're wrong, duh, the worst, duh, the most annoying comment, word, saying, phrase, letters, paragraph, parts of speech, slang words, everywhere when talking, speaking, writing, chatting, typing, anything. I can see also this word in this site and youtube. - ronluna

This isn't funny, exciting, or happy as other slang word. The listener feels bad for this word. It hurts other people's feeling. It also annoys people who only hear this word. This word makes people stupid for just asking innocent question or statement.

There was this girl in my class who thinks shes perfect and hot smart who said duh ALL THE TIME it was so anoying

I don't know why people say "Duh" instead of "yes" or "ya"

How did this turn from another word for a dog/wolf into an insult? - Harri666

I HATE when people uses this to women. I am a boy, but still, It just plain bothers me. It's offensive, stupid, and weird. One time I was playing Clash of Clans and on world chat, this guy said that my girlfriend enjoys when I say the b word. I obviously feel bad for her OR that is not true. Boys for the future generation, it's a stupid word. Don't use it. - floridiancat

This word is offensive and demeaning.
Trashy words for trashy people.

Tim Gunn thinks this is a term of endearment. Wonder if he'd like it if I called him a name and then told him I meant it lovingly?
