about detestable phrases
Detestable Phrases (DP) is a collection of phrases that the editors find detestable. This means that under no condition – save precise and nuanced irony, or in reference to their detestability – can and/or should these phrases be accepted in normal conversation. We’re the MPAA Ratings Board of vernacular English, if you will.
A tip: To understand why they are detestable, think of the douchiest, most “typical” 40-year-old guy uttering each. Then tell us we’re wrong. We dare you.
