The Queen's English for Misuse, Overuse and Uselessness has put forth its highly influential, Weltanschauung-changing, schism-creating annual List of Words to be Banished. This year, the organization include such terms as swag, foodie, hack, curated, skill set, takeaway, and polar vortex. That's the last you'll see of those letters together in that order for taste has spoken and the course of language always follows such orders. Good-bye, sweet baes, parting is such sweet swag.
