Is it just me ..

...or is 'chillaxing' one of the worst mutations of the English language to date?

Kind of like a corgioceros.

Anything with "Axe" in it has got to go. Any time I'm out in da hood (i.e., my ghetto neighborhood), all I hear is "axe": "I axe her, what she gonna go and do dat for?!" "An den I axe him, why you all up in my grill, boy?"

And then there's Axe Body Spray (I believe it's Lynx in the British-type countries), which needs to be banned, as it effing well reeks. "Axe murderers," that's what I call the guys who wear it, and I make a point of telling them that girls actually hate it. Of course it helps when my hot teenage daughter is along in the store, just to back me up.

Boy, do I hate the word "axe."

I forgot to mention that I am highly intrigued at what a "corgioceros" might be. I'm picturing a cross between the Queen's Corgis and some type of horned velociraptor... "Clever girl!"

It's quite annirritating.

Fat Sparrow - nearly! It was a cross between a rhinoceros and a corgi. I'm not quite sure who would be most offended - the corgi or the rhinos.

Holemaster - Yexactly.

I will admit that Mr. M says chillax to the pooches on occasion.

*cringe*

Well, at least it is to the dogs. The moment he tells you to chillaxe, I think you need to have words.

I am so with you on this. I have ranted about it before. One who tells you to chillax is one who is asking for a punch in the face.

Yup, or the throat.
