Finalists

Some personal favorites that didn't make "Words for the wise: Ignore these words":

* the craptalicious suffix "-licious," which apparently can be attached to anything;

* "PUMA," via angry Hillraisers after the Democratic primary. It stands for "Party Unity My Ass," which is fitting because the Democrats are represented by the ass (though I have a feeling that's not what they were referring to). "Hillraisers" was now among the finalists; and

* "long photo," which allegedly means "a video of 90 seconds or less." I guess that makes television news "long newspapers."
