Runner up would be "How good is that?" or "How tasty is that?"
How good is that? It's all good!
If it were "all good"...City-data would not exist!!!!

"DD" is also a very annoying abbreviation.

Have to agree with all the rest of you, especially, "MY BAD". I cringe when someone ends every sentence with "and everything". Same as earlier post mentioned "know what I'm saying?" AHHHHH! Like, have a, like, nice day!

"irregardless" as used by Gov. Huckabee twice in a few seconds. Regardless of his usage, it still sounds ignorant and uneducated to me.

This is great. If you're ever talking to someone and they keep ending every sentence with "know what I'm saying" or "nomesain", just once after they say that, you say "No, I don't". It's priceless the look on their face. And EVERY time the ignorant fool will go into breaking it down for you even more and will inevitably use "know what I'm saying" (nomesain) in the breakdown. Do it...I dare you. It's great; you'll remember it for the rest of your life.

By the way, my little happy guy is really showing off his "grill" isn't he???

I'm getting pretty sick of hearing the word "awesome". Why is everything all of a sudden so "awesome"??? I also hate it when people use the word "like" in every sentence. Can't we like, say things anymore without like, well, using the word like? It's just not, like, that awesome!

Default Yet another one

I was sharing this forum with a friend of mine last night and she couldn't believe nobody had said "actually" yet. We were watching the news a couple of nights ago and a young woman was being interviewed about something and I would wager she said "actually" 15 times in the course of 60 minutes.
