Your Search Questions Answered, Volume 12

searchengines

This edition of Your Search Questions Answered has an annoying words theme.

For the most part, a lot of my juicy, funny search terms this time around were related to my post about 7 annoying words that should die a horrible death. That post tends to generate all kinds of weird traffic.

If you need a recap on past volumes of Your Search Questions, here you go. Remember, I leave the searches in all of their unedited glory.

So…here you go:

every time you say just saying

You take a piece of me with you.

only douchebags say stoked

Well, that’s just harsh. While many douchebags do, quite likely, use the word “stoked,” I wouldn’t go as far as saying only douchebags use the term. Though I cringe, I have many friends who use the word. They aren’t d-bags. Now, if they combine “stoked” and “awesome sauce” in the same breath? Like, “I’m so stoked about Nickelback’s new album. That’s the awesome sauce.” We can’t be friends anymore.

whether we are verbally speaking or texting; one word replies makes me very upset!

Fiddlesticks! So I’ll make my declaration of anger on an internet search engine!

can the word awesome be used for humans

Of course. For example, “Bono is awesome.” There. Done. Better question: Can the word awesome be used for mosquitos? What is their purpose here on this earth, other than ruining cookouts and spreading disease? Bono = awesome. Mosquitos = so not awesome.

words that asre imposible to spell

Your list should probably start with “are” and “impossible”.

i hate the trendy phrase “mommy”

You know what’s even worse? That annoying word “daddy.” Ugh. Who says stupid crap like that? Don’t even get me started on “brother.”

twilight i love you

That’s sweet. But you know what? Twilight doesn’t love you. It’s a book, and books don’t love humans—at least to my knowledge. And I can promise you that no human will love you until you stop Googling “twilight I love you.”

“help” me read infinite jest

If I said “no” would that really mean “yes”? Has the “eagle landed” on the “southwestern prairie” near the collection of “tumbleweeds”?

mean cheap stingy which one is the worst

Tough call. I’d go with mean, though. Being cheap and stingy certainly aren’t desirable qualities, but mean people do things like murder and arson and cheering for the New York Yankees.

instead of saying someone is “too old”, people may choose to say “time honored”

How lovely. Grandpa isn’t too old…he’s time honored. What do you think of “lightly aged” or “less than dead” or “Mr. Wrinkleypants”?

***

What’s up with all the word-related search terms this time around? A lot of that coming to the blog lately.

Though this is a book blog, 101 Books seems to be the go-to source for all things related to annoying words. It’s a responsibility I don’t take lightly.

Until next time…

    Great, now I’ve got that “Every time you go away…” song stuck in my head. Other than that, another great search terms post!

  2. I just discovered your blog, and this is one of the best posts ever! What the hell are you tagging so that “douchebags” is a word that makes your blog pop up?

    • It’s probably more about “stoked” in that example. I wrote a whole posts about annoying words, and stoked was one of them. Douchebag is just the icing on the cake, I guess.

  3. “And I can promise you that no human will love you until you stop Googling “twilight I love you.””

    I can’t stop laughing at this one.
