That's ridiculous.  Why that word choice?  Is it short for something?

It’s an acronym that’s not really FBG appropriate.

These pretzels are making me horny

"#### you 2016". People died in 2015 and will continue to die next year. Every time a famous person dies there's about a million tweets saying fu 2016. Stop.

In this vein, the whole "momma bear" thing absolutely infuriates me.  Shut up, mini-van-driving soccer mom.

throat punch.  Just leave the word out so you don't sound like a dork.

I'm not saying that *I* say this, FWIW.

anything STRONG

Stop it

The shooting in Vegas made us #VegasStrong, which is a rip-off of the Boston Marathon’s #BostonStrong, but now Coronavirus has resulted in signs about town.  Apparently we are now #VegasStronger, which must mean we weren’t as #VegasStrong as we thought we were.  Someday we will be #VegasStrongest.

"The 'Rona"

Makes me want to stab stab stab.

Missed this before.

No one needs credit for bringing it up.  We just need it (well, the disease AND that f-ing term) to go away.  :hot:

How are people using "sesh"?

Is it like, "This is some really good sesh beer"?

Next time I can order at a bar i am using this. Maybe summon my inner Mikey. 

I'll have an IPA in a glass, please. Any IPA will do, as long as it's not a red, of course. Pale malt, Lagunitas daytime sesh, terrapin recreation sesh, harpoon take 5 sesh, perhaps, any sesh.”

Honeymooners did it (simp) way back in the mid 50s :shrug:

Wasn't the original intent/meaning of this term "simpleton" as opposed to "a guy who is subservient to a woman"/cuckold type of connotation?

How was it used in the Honeymooners? I certainly know the latter meaning is the one that's intended by today's zoomers.

six of one, half dozen of the other ... wouldn't shock me if Gleason & co. were serving up some ham on wry with theirs.

It is What It Is. I cannot stand when people say this especially when defending something they really don't have an explanation for of why it's right and not wrong. Just seems like a cop out

"snowflake" 

Look it up it's a derogatory term in the LGBTQ community. I won't post what it means here as it's inappropriate. 

Beu cannot stand this especially when girls use it as a sub to saying Boyfriend. If I had a GF who said this I'd instantly dump her without warning

Shawty not sure what it even means but I cannot stand when people use it. 

"When another older guy calls you son" Dude I'm not your son why are you even calling me that? You don't call a girl not your own "hey daughter so why hey son?"

 If she is pronouncing it Boo instead of Beau (bow and arrow), it's even worse.

Bolded submitted for retirement. 

Also calling someone who is not an actual rock star a rock star
