Default ITT: cliché expressions are cliché.

Attention members: The following popular expressions are cliché and shall no longer be considered clever or funny, as they are not.

"makes me want to punch babies"

and any reference to Down's syndrome.

Once again, references to "the Down's" and "punching babies" are no longer considered edgy or rad, or whatever else one might call it. Offensive does not necessarily equal funny, especially when a phrase has become ubiquitous.

Very sincerely yours,

Koto McKotonburg.

What is that even from? Sounds like something stupid that would have come from Family Guy (the least funny pile of **** show on earth). Yes, once upon a time you could say it makes me want to punch babies.

In this post, I will try not to offend anyone because it's no longer clever or funny.

I don't think you understand what I'm saying.

Offensive **** can be funny, maybe the first 30 times you hear it, but after that it gets pretty stale.

What's funnier than a dead baby?
A dead baby in a clown costume!

I think I heard the "punch babies" thing first from some Dane Cook stand-up.

What's the difference between a dead baby and a trampoline?
When you jump on a trampoline, you take your boots off.

Sigh, you're still not getting it, Brainy. I even explained it real easy to understand like for you. I'm not speaking of expressions or jokes which are supposed to be offensive, but those which have been run into the ground.

Get it?

cliches are what the intellectually weak use when they want to sound smart.

I don't get it.

Why is it ok to use a certain expression only for a certain length of time before it must be retired and replaced with a new expression which means essentially the same thing? We're not women, and these aren't shoes.

Makes me want to punch babies with Down's Syndrome...

This thread makes me want to colonize uncharted territories and wipe out the native inhabitants.
