    I can't envision "God" taking sides, especially when this is generally invoked by groups intent on finding ways to slaughter other humans. If I believed in God, I believe such a being would be saddened and/or angered by such behavior - and not particularly supportive of it.

    I had a friend who spoke very quickly who would start off sentences with "Yeah, but..." a lot. I'd tease him but jumping in with, "Yabbit, yabbit! Yabbit rabbit!"

    Can't think of anything creative this time

    Well he got pissed off so he flooded the earth for 40-days and 40-nights. And then had second thoughts about it afterwards. I guess he was young then. Now he just chooses a select few and summons them to safety for Rapture and lets the rest of the Heathens duke it out for world domination, then he calls in his muscle (angles) and wipe the earth clean for at least another 1000-years. he had his writers write a book that told of his thoughts and concerns and in the end he will say another annoying phrase, "I told ya so", ushers in St. Peter at the pearly gates and shuts them for good.

    Thanks, cw - I knew you were likely to respond in a respectful way that would make me smile, too.

    Is the phrase "shots fired" as a zinger too politically incorrect now? The NBA team Washington Wizards used to be known as the Washington Bullets.

    Exclamation Re: Annoying phrases

    You know what is an "annoying phrases" to me are?.....

    the ones that I hear now & then, when others speaks to me, & in every conversation sound like a question (on the phone), when they are actually telling me something.

    Might just be a mainland thing? & I am not sure if people stopped doing that or they still continue do so.

    In Example: I am going to the the store? to buy some groceries?, then go to the gym later? etc.

    Oh MY Gosh!!.

    If people stopped doing that, then I am glad that they did stop.

    A little off topic but the other night on "Top Chef" the local guy who was enjoying himself said to the others "I can get used to to this.", wasn't annoying but made me laugh wondering if other local people were watching and caught that.

    An Irish accent is quite different, but it also has this characteristic of ending many phrases with a rising pitch.

    "That's what she said!"
    Still! 3.5 years after I put it on this list! I especially hate it when you're trying to tell someone something important and they keep interrupting you with this. THIS HAS NOT BEEN FUNNY FOR A LONG TIME AND IS NOT FUNNY NOW! GO FIND A NEW JOKE!! Grrr.

    I've been hearing more people use the term "the narrative" lately.
