More Stupid Expressions I Can Do Without, Thank You.

Stan Freberg here. There's a few expressions I'd just as soon never hear again, like "Generation X" to describe all young people. My 24-year old son, who falls into that category, hates it. Me too. More after this. [:60 SPOT BREAK]

Freberg here. If I never again heard the new age expression, "Get in touch with your feelings," it'd be fine with me. "Ouch!" "What happened?" "I hit my thumb with this hammer!" " need to get in touch with your feelings." "I am--my thumb is in touch with my feelings!" Please, spare us the psycho-babble.

Another line that drives me nuts is, "Let's dialogue about that." When did "dialogue"--a noun--become a verb? What's the matter with the word "talk"? "Can we talk about that?" Fine...just so we don't "dialogue" about it.

I have to go get in touch with my feelings now. Maybe I'll send them a postcard.
