Boycotting literally

Literally appears to be the most overused and/or misused word lately. I read and hear it everywhere. The media in particular seems obsessed with the word.

I'm boycotting it... literally. bitchslap2

Starting a sentence with 'so' has also become overly popular. I don't mind that as much, but it always sounds to me like something your mom would say when she busts you on something... So! I heard you come home at 1AM and I'm missing $10. Hmmmmm?

Uh oh! Eek

So, literally, I'm boycotting literally; literally.

The media blowhards need a new word to abuse. The more they use it the dumber they sound.

Yeah, I'm bored. 1beer1

Can we add "actually"? We could probably reduce the word count of most conversations by eliminating literally and actually from the language.

I literally have some bad news for you. Please watch this episode of "Adam Ruins Everything". Many famous writers used "literally" in the way we abhor.

Add 'whatnot' to the list. When somebody says that they immediately fall into the dum-dum basket.
Doh
