So on Facebook this week, I offered up that I was sick of the phrase, “perfect storm”, as in “this past week the stock market fell due to a perfect storm of devalued currencies and raised food prices, blah blah blah”. Others offered their own annoying phrases:
“The elephant in the room”
“You had me at….”
“That’s what she said” (oh, I am so in agreement with this one)
Tacking “gate” onto the name of any scandal
“At the end of the day…”
And, of course, “low hanging fruit”.

P.S. the photo above is in no way meant to be disrespectful to gay people, but rather to specifically mock Mr Simmons, who is the fruitiest person I’ve ever seen –gay, straight or other.
