New years eve is not just a night when people get drunk and do incredibly stupid things. It is also a whole day of ridiculous people say really stupid things. Things like, “See you next year!”, and then they laugh like no one has ever said it before. What a marvelous gag.
I think it should be legal to throat punch anyone who says that on New Years Eve. Other sayings fall into the same category. “Have a nice trip. See you in the fall!”, after seeing someone stumble. Throat punch.
Or how about “orientated?” The words are “orientation” or “oriented”. There are more. “Conversate”, instead of “converce”. Throat punch. “I could care less”, which is stupid because it indicates that you really do care. “I couldn’t care less” means you don’t care.” I hear that one all of the time. Throat punch.
And finally, people who use air quotes way too much, like I just did throughout this blog. I will now throat punch myself.
