The Top Ten

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?
[Newest]People seem to forget that swag has actual meanings outside of stupid crap 13 year olds say. Look it up in the dictionary

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..
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..
[Newest]It's a good saying but some kids use it the wrong way in my class. They'll always use it for stupid reasons like finishing homework or solving a math question. Being born in the 2000's, you wish you weren't.

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!


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


Only low life nerds that live with there mother use this


[Newest]This is more like a gaming word

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.
[Newest]I can't even find this word in the dictionary. Well at least not the moronic slang version. Apparently ratchet is a machine consisting of a bar or wheel with a set of spikes where a gear engages.

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"


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.
[Newest]Remember when it used to be a GOOD word? When it used to show HAPPINESS and JOY?

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
[Newest]Go shawty, it's yo birthday. We gonna party like it's yo birthday. No? Okay.

7Homie (s)
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 should'nt even be on this list. It's a perfectly normal word & who ever has a problem with the word homies, probably does'nt have any Homies because there probably a snotty, close-minded, astintatios prick!
If your white don't use this term make you look fake like you probably (R)

It's horrible and racist, and yet some idiots think they can say it because it was used by some stupid rapper.
If its so offensive to blacks then why do they constantly use it in music, television and movies.


Its not offensive or racist! It means "to be lazy" or in another way that someone used mean "rude, unintelligent, arrogant person" so racism isn't even a factor! Get out of "Slave times" as even whites and Mexicans and other races was called this as well. as my family says its only okay for black, African American can only say this as its referred to one another! So if its offensive to your race then stop using it dumbass
Who taught you people, don't go by word of mouth. The definition does not say lazy. It means - an inferior ignorant person ; any person of color or darkened skin ; a derogatory term for African Americans; racial slur... this is from the dictionary itself. So this word is very racist
[Newest]The most offensive swear word. I'd never say this if I were you.


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.
Does anyone even use this word anymore? If so than I'm glad.
[Newest]The people who use this word are referring to themselves.


It gets really annoying people say it because they are to lazy to say crazy its not that hard
This needs to be way higher on the list of dumb words. Just saying!
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)


[Newest]Oh, this one. I used to rarely use it. Now it's just weird.

The Contenders

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


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!


[Newest]What the HECK?!? This is a dumb word! And I've never even heard it 'till now.


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.


[Newest]Word is my favorite slang word, best used if the person grew up in the 90's and uses it SPARINGLY.

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.


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. )
[Newest]When forget what I was about to say, I use like and normally I remember. It's a useful word.

Bruh is so annoying everyone sounds stupid saying it but I don't know y people still say it
HIT THE BRUH BUTTON! Laugh out loud so annoying
This is/used to be an actual African word meaning Brother. Now everybody messed this word up.

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


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


This is just, oh I can't even. I don't know anything about it accept that a) white girls can't do it and b) I can't do it. But what I do know is big booty big booty big booty. Some are just twerkhards... Haha who am I kidding? TWERKK

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


I never use this unless I'm trying to be stupid.


Don't dis Goofy from Mickey Mouse! 'hot dawg'
[Newest]One of my brothers used to use this. I also did sometimes(lol). Now it is just plain weird


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.


Everyone says it when you do something wrong my 4th grade class says it its annoying I hate even hearing the word
There was this girl in my class who thinks shes perfect and hot smart who said duh ALL THE TIME it was so anoying
[Newest]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.

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.
[Newest]I hate texting people who says this, that?... Just say that, it takes you less than a second, come on

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.


What the heck is bae? Whatever happened to the word girlfriend?
BAE, your my BAE, what happened to just saying girlfriend or boyfriend
[Newest]Apparently it means baby. Because people are so lazy now that they need shortened versions of two-syllable words.

Thou shalt not take thy Lord's name in vain. This word downplays how serious that is to break a commandment
On last Sunday I carve idols in soap I stole from the hotel while coveting my neighbors male servant instead of visiting with my parents on their anniversary because that sounded lame. This Sunday I slept with my other neighbor's wife and accidentally stabbed him with my carving knife but I set it up to look like it was her doing it. But I would never take the lord's name in vain.
Oh my god! I just said oh my god! Oh my god, I just said oh my god again! OH MY GOD! I just said oh my god 5 times! Oh my god! I said it six times now! My goodness!


Almost as bad as laugh out loud
