Banished Words: 2005

Banished Words Website for 2005

That’s right, friends, probably one of the most useful web pages you’ll ever see come from a university has showed up again, just in time for your Xmas or New Years Parties. All the words that have gone through their fifteen minutes of fame and have now outlived what little usefulness they have.

The site even has archived lists going all the way back to 1976 Some of the words from back then:

  • Scenario Last heard repeatedly during “The Greatest American Hero,” a show about a klutzy guy in orange superhero tights. The show jumped the shark when the guy was able to fly competently.
  • Detente. Enough said.
  • Input. Unfortunately the word mutated and still exists.

Look through and have some laughs. Or sighs….
