Cool Down, Everybody


As a communication tool,
It's time to do away with "cool",
A word once said by every hippie
On both sides of the Mississippi.

For what seems awesome or stupendous,
For whatsoever else does send us,
There must be more precise locutions
When our reactions are effusions.

So talking head or late night guest,
It would be cool to give it rest.

  • There is Craig Ferguson's "awesome," which he overuses like everything else. "What's that about repetitive humor? Do we have a picture of Paul McCartney?"

  • Yep, "awesome" is another culprit, to be sure. Ferguson should know better than to use so trite an adjective. He's a brilliant guy.
