    Ones I can't stand right now;

    "You're Fired"
    "Can you hear me now?"
    "Is that your final answer"

    Just shows how we're a culture of sound bites and news clips.

    I can't stand all that Git-er-done crap. It was mildly amusing at first, now it's just stupid.

    I'm about git 'r done with that phrase as well. His material is very funny, but I'm sick of hearing every goober in town hollering "Git 'r done!" every eight seconds, especially when it makes no sense in the context.

    For my money, Ron White is the funniest of the blue collar group.

    How many times can I vote for Larry the Cable Guy? Man, that dude is annoying...sometimes funny, but when he starts just randomly throwing "Git 'er done!" into his monologue just to elicit a response from the audience, I have to turn it off . (EastKyFF....You're right, Ron White is damn funny!)

    Other nominees:

    "My bad"....My bad what?
    "Irregardless"....is not a word.
    "Dog"....the whole thing about calling everybody "dog"....That used to be an insult, didn't it?
    ...and my personal favorite....

You can't have people, if their houses are burning down, saying, 'Whatever you do, don't call the fire department!' That would be bad."

    Oh Oh Oh,

    I got another.

    "Out of the box"

    Wayyyy overused, to the point now that anything that is original or "not the way we used to do it" is inherently out of the box...! Not true, but everyone every office wants to the out of the box. Well when the box empties out I'm jumping back in.

    "bling bling"...How sad is it when a "black culture" word is now used by a white, middle aged woman to sell crappy stickers "to add bling to almost anything..." Damn..I gotta get some sleep once in a while and stop watching late-night tv. Has anyone else seen these STUPID commercials?

    Another one...JLo and marrage....'nuff said about that...

    stm, I hate that son bitch. The worst piece of white trash to ever walk the earth. Who watches that show, honestly? A&E should be ashamed of themselves.

    I think Larry's saying is pretty funny, but it's overused by everyone, including me.

    my least favorite:

    You've got mail!

    Took me a long time to figure out how to make it stop saying that everytime I log on. Especially because 99% of my email is junk and nothing to get that excited about!

    I agree with Ladycapn........ I hated the "That's hot" from the first time I heard it!!!!!!

    As for Larry, I love him and Ron White, both. i think they are both hilarious!!!


    stm....... who's the goof in the picture?? Must not have ever seen this show you guys are talking about???

    Why "He's DOG, the Bounty Hunter."

    It's a new reality show on A&E where they follow this guys as he tracks down his bail jumper clients. What a moron. I can't believe he hasn't been arrested yet for half of the illegal stuff he does and says. Stupid, but entertaining, sort of like a train wreck.

    And for the AOL mail saying, there are sites out there with downloads that you can use to replace that slogan with custom ones. When I had AOL, I used to swap it out with funny ones or amusing sounds from time to time.

    And "That's Hot" is Not!
    Never argue with an Idiot. They drag you down to their level, and then beat you with experience!
