A new year and apparently we need to rid ourselves of some phrases and words.
That’s according to Lake Superior State University, which has released a list of words and phrases to be banished for the new year.
The word “GOAT” is a goner, and among many words that made the annual banished list for 2023.
“GOAT”, an acronym for Greatest of All Time, typically has been used to describe the likes of basketball’s Michael Jordan, hockey’s Wayne Gretzky and NFL’s Tom Brady.
Also making this year’s list are “amazing,” “absolutely” and “gaslighting” — as well as a few from previous years, such as “quiet quitting” and the dismissive phrase, “it is what it is.”
