As we prepare to leave 2013 behind, a Michigan college has some suggestions on what words would be better off forgotten.
FOX News Radio's Pam Puso reports:
Twerking may be a relatively new term, but it's already run its course, according to an annual list of annoying words compiled by Michigan's Lake Superior State University. More than 2,000 nominations were submitted to the school and topping this year's batch of words to banish: Selfie. Other words considered over-used: Hashtag, Obamacare, T-bone, Twittersphere and anything with the suffix "-pocalypse"... Like snow-pocalypse. Since 1975, the list has grown to more than 800 words.
