Most annoying words of 2013

Sault Ste. Marie, Mich. - Lake Superior State University has ranked the Most Annoying Words of 2013.

This year's list includes the words "selfie," "twerking" and "hashtag."

Some politically charged phrases that irked folks this year included ""Obamacare" and "intellectually or morally bankrupt."

The list is made up completely from nominations. We dont just sit around and think of words that bug us, said spokesperson Tom Pink in Sault Ste. Marie.

Others on the banned list include Twittersphere, t-bone, and anything on steroids.

People also tired of the suffixes -pocalypse and -ageddon used to make words such as snow-pocalypse or ice-ageddon.

And enough already with Mr. Mom, a reference to fathers who take care of kids.
