Top Ten Dumbest Slang Words

The Top Ten

1 Swag

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?

Yeah, it really means “secretly we are gay”. - Hermione_Granger220

2 Yolo

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..

Yolo sucks so much It is so lame! - B0S5J4M3S

3 Noob/N00b/Newb

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

Roblox's so-called edgy children abused this word, bruh. (ie: HEY NUB! GIT REKT SKRUB! )

4 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!

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

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

And how is this bad - B0S5J4M3S

5 N****

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

Dude black people are the ones who use it the most. They only get pissed if a white person uses it - Organ

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

My opinion of this is that it is flat out inappropriate but it is highly used by black people themselves and I don't think it is OK for them to use that word themselves and then get offended if a white person refers to them in a "playful" way, come on, either you get offended by the "WORD" or you don't! Be real, don't use the word as an excuse, the real offense is only coming from the fact that a white person used it, therefore, they are being JUST as racist when they get pissed because a white person called them the same thing that a black person did with no reaction! Makes sense, does it not?! - julz_b21

This should be 1st... - B0S5J4M3S

6 Ratchet

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.

A ratchet can be two things.
1. a device consisting of a bar or wheel with a set of angled teeth in which a pawl, cog, or tooth engages, allowing motion in one direction only.
2. a situation or process that is perceived to be deteriorating or changing steadily in a series of irreversible steps.
It is not an adjective describing something bad. That would be "wretched." - naFrovivuS

7 Dope Dope

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".

I hate it when people say this. - Hermione_Granger220

8 Shorty

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

'Shawty' sounds a hundred times worse. - Entranced98

9 Homie (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 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

GAY

10 Bae

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

It’s so annoying when people say this. - Hermione_Granger220

The Contenders

11 Cray

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

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 F ING HATE THIS WORD SO MUCH. 1. Its too overused. 2. WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH MY GENERATION? 3. It is just plain annoying and lazy. Here's an example: ". I just went to the mall and saw this reely hawt guy standing there. So I'm like, "Boy you make me go cray cray" and then we did it in his car! "

12 Hootie

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 typed in Hootie and the result showed Darius Rucker. - naFrovivuS

13 Bruh/Bruhh

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.

As if “bro” isn’t annoying enough. - lovefrombadlands

14 Twerk

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

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

15 Word

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

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!

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!

Peter griffin will tell you why

16 Like

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. )

This word is so overused. - Hermione_Granger220

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.

19 Duh

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

It’s fine if people use it every once in a while, but when they say it in every two sentences... that angers me. - Hermione_Granger220

20 Legit

Like legit. This word is legit the worst. Gosh. Save us all some air and stop using it for words like legit. Go die in a hole if you want to be legit.

Ne, this word is so lame, I feel like slapping myself every time it accidentally slips out.

This is a good term, it's just a shortened form of "legitimate." It's like saying "parks and rec" instead of "parks and recreation" - mtndewlord

Legit can mean two things.
1. Legal
2. Honest
I don't know what people assume the definition is, but it's clearly not what's in the dictionary. - naFrovivuS

22 OMG

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.

It is actually offensive to Jews and Christians. Now, Christianity is taken too lightly to the point where Christians are offended literally everyday with people not even having the intent to do so. I may seem overbearing with this but that evil saying is more like profanity. Say Oh my stars. Goodna Gratis, Christianity is not some jokey religion. Know and learn about what you are saying.

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! - SammySpore

Can mean oh my gosh, too...

Used by douchebags

Ridiculous - Organ

24 Totes

The word is totally. A tote is a beach bag or gym bag. So its rather stupid to say "Oh that's totes amazing! " WHAT! Its beach bag amazing? When people say this to me I cringe.

Very annoying. The only place I've ever heard any one say it was EMMA ROSS ON JESSIE

Nobody says this in the real life except various Disney channel characters.

Totes is worse then "Swag"

25 Savage

It's a nice word actually

Stupid.

No it’s a BAD WORD (at least last year it was) - chocoluv17

Savage originally means fierce, violent, cruel, out of control, and uncivilized. To describe either an animal, force of nature, or a person. This word was mostly used to describe Native Americans back in the day who didn't live the lifestyle as white people did, and so they weren't seen as human beings by them.

It doesn't have a second meaning other than a slang that was created in 2016 by uncreative people who don't know how to come up with their own slang words. It's now being used as someone who has the guts to do what others wouldn't.

Savage is actually more of an insult than a compliment.

26 Dank

Oh My God, This Word is So Annoying!

Sounds stupid and doesn't deserve to refer to coolness.

Where did this even come from a horses butt?

Dank - disagreeably damp, musty, and typically cold.
So if a meme is dank, the you're saying it's wet, stale, and cold, essentially meaning...it's terrible? - naFrovivuS

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

32 Baller

Baller etymology comes from sad notion that in order be successful in the African American community one has to be a ball player - hence Baller. It's neither dumb nor pointless, but it is sad.

It's a stupid word and you could just say Basketball player. Gosh it's like people these days don't want to open their mouth too much

I always thought this word was a support for people with testicular cancer, like my uncle, but it's not.

I hate this word so much! It doesn't make any sense

Okay first of all people some people from the south do and my DAD says howdy when he says hello to some people okay. And yes some Texans do talk like that okay. AND you can't just say they're stupid dumbass redneck hillbillies just by the way they talk okay.

I'm southern and raised around people who say it. I love this slang word and its easier to say than you all. It's just a slang word if you don't like it don't hang around people who say it!

Where did you come from? Where did you go?
