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?

Lol me ad my friends use this word, because for us it means "Secretly, We Are Gay"

It's just an inside joke to mock people who say that word. - AlphaQ

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..

You live twice when you go to Heaven...

(Don't criticize me by saying "there is no God" because I won't believe you) - RedTheGremlin

3 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

It's used between black people. It basically means "brother". There is a reason why they say this. When black people were mostly slaves (which is awful and disgusting) they were called this. They use it in a way to show that they are "brothers" and that they are in this together. It's a nasty word but it should only be used by black people to show respect. I'd wish they'd just say "brother" or "friend" though.

4 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

I hate this word. And country words aren't slang, they're just different ways of saying commonly used words.

5 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.

All the comments here about the use of the word Gay in the context of it meaning stupid, retarded or Gay... are just stupid, retarded and... GAY... lol...

This new meaning for the word Gay is the best ever transformation of a word in the entire English language.

There is no better word to describe how utterly ridiculous something is then to proclaim that it is "eff'n GAY"... It sounds great and is funny saying it..

Most of all.. All the air heads that think by using this word in this context has somehow anything to do with homosexuals, need to go back to school...

There are all kinds of words that evolve new meanings and have several different meanings... using it in this way has nothing to do with homosexuals.. lol..

That about as stupid as me saying "That thing sure is dumb? ", and people thinking I'm somehow making fun of someone that can't talk because.. well... they are dumb too.. lol..

It's silly really... I'll use whatever word I want ...more

6 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".

The people who use this word are referring to themselves. - SammySpore

7 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

I'm guessing this is short for "baby"?
That would still make the term misused with how I've seen people use it.

8 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

I thought this was a nickname marge called homer

9 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.

I first heard it almost three years ago from this really annoying kid and I STILL barely know what it means. - PhoenixAura81

10 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 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.

The Contenders

11 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.

It's Extremely Annoying! It's just a bunch of Stupid Dumb Assess trying to sound cool in front of others. Even though in truth it makes them sound Completely Dumb!

12 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

I HATE HEARING THIS. It doesn't sound sweet, or cute, it doesn't make sense, at all, and it sounds stupid in songs. I would hit my boyfriend if her ever referred to me as "Shawty" HELL NO.

13 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!

How lazy are you in order to use this word? Is one extra syllable too much?

14 Twerk

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

I hate this word and the dancing. It's gross and ugly. I am so glad I'm not the only female who looks down on this revolting monstrosity. - RedTheGremlin

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

*throws up*

This word is disturbing and gross - KingSlayer93316

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

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!

Me 2, it's like a word used in agreement but it's really irritable and doesn't actually make sense

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. )

Sadly, I have the constant habit of saying this word, without noticing it. I strive for perfect grammar, just to prove I'm not a brainless kid, unlike some people I know...

The reason I say it is because when I say it, it enables me a few more seconds to think about what to say next or what word I wanted to remember (yes, I also have a habit of using challenging words that most people I know don't know the meaning of.

Overall, if I had a choice, I would make myself stop saying it.

17 Dawg

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

Don't dis Goofy from Mickey Mouse! 'hot dawg'

I never use this unless I'm trying to be stupid. - username34

One of my brothers used to use this. I also did sometimes(lol). Now it is just plain weird - floridiancat

18 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

Duh basically means obviously. I say duh when I'm trying to make something terse or make someone feel stupid, because the word duh has some sort of property that makes people feel stupid that the word obviously just doesn't have. - username34

19 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

People only say it for the sake of saying it.

20 Twenty-Wan

I've never heard of this one but that sounds stupid as hell - Mcgillacuddy

It's officially 21st

It's completely Random and absolutely makes no Sense!

I'm glad it didn't come 21st

21 Dat

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.

Okay, I thought all of the words here was dumb and immature but this is the worst to me. I mean that is not really difficult to spell. It is only 4 letters.

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.

Thanks! I'm a Christian and it's nice to know that some people actually have morals - RedTheGremlin

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

Almost as bad as laugh out loud

23 Damn Daniel

Stupid dumbass internet trends that make no sense - KingSlayer93316

Never heard this one

24 MILF

I hate this word! Why can't you just say that you'd like to have sex with her, why do you have to mention the fact that she's a mother? That's messed up. - DaWyteNight

Good acronym for a mother you would like to have sex with.

Short for "Mom I'd Like to F*ck".

25 Badass
26 Lit

I used to use this word a lot now I feel like an idiot for using it. - oofoff

I really hope this word dies out soon - Dorito

This word gives me a malignant tumour every time I hear it

Hearing someone say "lit" just makes me cringe.

27 Thicc

I hate this word! It's an insult to girls. Even though I am not fat, it's still rude and annoying to say. Guys should not be focusing on girls' butts and physical size - RedTheGremlin

Imagine getting offended by this. - DarkBoi-X

I'm pretty sure it's used for body confidence. - RoseWeasley

This is a slang? - ElSherlock

28 Bitch

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

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

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

That's how your fat mama said while yelling at your neighbors! Just hit her with a frying pan!

29 Derp

I don't even know what this even mean

It's an expression you make when you are so confused, your eyes go outward.

Don't touch that derpy derp NO! Don't touch that derp

Does it mean twerp, or what?

30 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.

This word is the worst. Now I see totes adores on socks, T-shirts, gym bags, and more. This is worse than "dabbing"

31 Shawty

This doesn't deserve to even be called a word... - Celestius

Another way to say "Shorty". Rappers used this in their song lyrics in 2007. - kcianciulli

For some reason whenever I hear this annoying word I just can't help but yell Boots With the Fur! - bobbythebrony

One of the girls in my rugby team name is shawty so I don't think it a dumb for but it really isn't word

32 Dhat

Is it so hard to say That, same amount of letters!

Lazy version of That.

Worse that "that" - Organ

This word sucks

33 Bestie

This one just annoys me.

34 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

35 Mofo

I don't know why but I like to say this

I can’t say I agree with this one. Remember the Uplift Mofo Party Plan? The Red Hot Chili Peppers are a good band, a’ight?

36 Guap

Basically a way to say "A lot of money" and sound like complete white trash while you say it.

It's a demeaning way to insult an Italian

37 Literally

I literally hate this overused word that only tik tok girls use - AlphaQ

people always misuse the word literally: "oh there was LITERALLY a million people in front of me in line today" "that was LITERALLY awesome"

Literally annually means REALLY

Wrong way - I LITERALLY had to scrub the dishes a million times

Right way - I had to scrub the dishes lots of times

This is LITERALLY the worst word . Literally..

38 Hater

This words so stupid, this might be offensive but only stupid people like rappers and taylor swift use this word

People are so dam annoying using this online. They obviously don't know how to use this word correctly

This kid in my class won't stop saying it

The internet is an easy place to slag things off so this word is going to be used a lot.

39 -izzle

That word makes me want to punch whoever said it right smack in the face. - MegaToolica

What? This is the most cliche slang term ever! Also, it makes you sound ultra-stupid. I can't give it credit for creativity either, since all you do is add izzle to a word.

you guys are so lame if snoop dogg saw you guys saying foshizzle and ilzzle and making fun of "dat" he would just laugh

WEST SIDE

everytime I hear it, I throw up a little. - Toilet

40 Ya'll

In South Carolina everyone says this. It in s not slang, it just doesn't sound as stupid as "you guys".

No person from the south talks like that nothing but some dumbass stereotypes I'm from Louisiana I say y'all but I don't say it like a dumbass redneck hillbilly

I am from Louisiana too and I go to school where nearly all the boys (not trying to be sexist, I'm just saying the facts) are redneck hillbillies. - RedTheGremlin

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!

41 Pissed

Can tell if someone's urinated in their pants or if they are just plain annoyed

What is wrong with this one? This one should stay. Been using it for years.

42 Hella

seriously, I can't figure out what the hell this means. - cameron331

Hell of a lot. Remove of and lot and there you go. Hella. Not saying it's good or bad just saying how it was formed.

It's means a lot, such as, I'm making Hella money!

I don't even know what this is supposed to mean can someone explain what this word means

43 Ballin'

This annoys me to no end

This sounds STUPID too.

I BE BAALLINN
(i'm sorry I just had to) - AlphaQ

I'm Jarl Balgruuf and I be Ballin' Ballin' Ballin' Jarl Ballin' Ballin' Ballin' swag! Woman I'm loord of the rings! I'm the Jarl of Whiterun, holla if you need me! - SirSkeletorThe3rd

44 Hoe/Ho

"HO HO HO! Welcome to Lapland" said Father Christmas. Staring at the three female elves who have come to work in Lapland for Christmas 2019. Mrs Claus glared at them. "Stay away from my husband! I'm already tweeting Coca Cola about the no wink advert every single year"

Rakes,... Why can't people just use words for their ACTUAL MEANING

I agree I tell my brother to text properly but he just misspelled words anyways him and his friends I mean they sound like TOTAL idiots especially when slang words are used!

Gucci should be on this list

45 Boomer

It's not slang lol - RoseWeasley

KalloFox is a boomer - HaloFanboy

Not a slang - ElSherlock

ok boomer - AlphaQ

46 Lol

The thing that's worse than laugh out loud is when people actually SAY it. Unless you actually laughed out loud, then don't say laugh out loud. And if you DID laugh out loud, then you don't have to say it either, because you just LOLed

Like laugh out loud this list is so laugh out loud and this stupid word is so overused laugh out loud. - luisprado

Laugh out loud is unnatural. People should laugh when they find something funny.

This word is overly used by everyone. It's also just annoying and it needs to go away.

47 Mirin

This is the greatest slang word ever who ever came up with this is a legend I want to meet them and shake there hands. I bet they have hot as girlfriends and should become male models

This word is so amazing, the creator of this must be the man! This is the greatest slang word ever who ever came up with this is a legend I want to meet them and shake there hands. I bet they have hot as girlfriends and should become male models

Isn't there an actor called Helen Mirin I wonder if she knows how popular her last name is?

I've never heard this one before... What does it mean? - Napstablook

48 Tight

In any context other than originally meant.

I like this word

This word is too ambiguous to have an actual meaning!

I like this word better than dope

49 Porn

Porn isn't slang, it's short for pornographic. But still, it's really gross. - username34

I wish people would stop using it to freed to love of things. Like, what we have here is the scenery porn. Used to describe beautiful areas in video games.

Why the hell do idiots use this word to describe things? Like the scenery porn?! That's so stupid and gross!

This word is just gross...
