Banishalicious

Thanks to the Mole, for this list of the 2007 Banished Words List.

MRP’s own nomination? Adding “-licious” to the end of any word to connote some kind of, ahem, tastiness about that thing — for instance, “bootylicious.”

Sorry, Frida, but I think Fergie’s new “Fergalicious” has pretty much sent me over the edge on that one. I mean, how seriously could you take lyrics like these?:

T to the A to the S T E Y girl you tasty, T to the A to the S T E Y girl you tasty

As I was saying.

What word would you ban if you could?

  1. I ditto the adding of “-licious” onto words.

    Other words or sayings: “you know what I’m sayin'”, “grill”, “that’s hot”, “gangsta”, “camel toe”, “beeyotch.”

  2. MRP, when I started my blog, fergie and beyonce were not so -licious as they are now…I truly apologize to all for being so ahead of the curve on this one. It’s the burden I must constantly shoulder for being a trendsetter. But at the same time, I agree that the only thing that should be allowed to be so -licious is gum…bubbalicious.

  3. Frida, dear, you have always been a trendsetter.

  4. Hey Mole,
    Your wish to ban those words will make those conversations with your daughters a little hard to follow, eh?

    “Mom, this —- got all up in my —- at school today, ———–.”
    “Now, honey, you’re getting a mite too —– for my tastes. You need to chill out some, ——————-.”
    “Aw, mom, you don’t know this ——. Now leave me alone and would it kill ya’ to cover up your ——- for once, —————? That’s what I said, ———“

  5. mybabyain’tcomeoutyet,

    Do you think you’re going to have it any easier when your daughter is a teenager? Puhleeze! She’ll probably be whoring herself out in the hospital nursery.

  7. mybabyain’tcomeoutyet,

    Neither one of the molettes or myself was “born in no Summahville, yo.”
    So stick that in your crack pipe.

    Lovingly yours,
    The Mole

  8. Now, now… mybabyaint and Mole, can’t we all, can’t we all, just get along?

    My nominations are: synergy and synergize, and concreatize.

  9. Oh, btw, I’m moving to Summahville, yo.

    Does the city supply the crack pipe?

    Wonderingly yours,
    David

  10. Dearest David,

    You are confusing Somerville with Dorchester. Somerville is a fine upstanding town with a rich history. Also, mybabyaint started it.

    x0x0x0x0,
    The Mole
