List Rules Vote up the annoying words you really wish would go away forever.

2016 has a been a brutal year in regards to Internet slang, and it's time to take a stand. We have all suffered insurmountable amounts of douche-chills from hearing words like "yasss" and "on fleek," and I'm not sure how much more the world can take. Let me break it down for you: there is no such thing as a "dad-bod," you just look like sh*t. You aren't "adulting" because you did your laundry and changed your car's oil today, it's simply called being a normal human being who isn't an irresponsible idiot. You can all stop referring to comebacks as "savage af," and for God's sake, please stop calling your significant other "bae."

Here are 20+ words we desperately need to retire, not just in 2017, but immediately. None of these words or phrases are acceptable to be speaking, typing, or texting, so take note of the most annoying words of 2016 and remove them from your vocabulary ASAP. The Internet thanks you in advance.
