Northern Michigan College releases bannished words list

With just 3,000 students its Michigan's smallest college

Sault Ste. Marie (WKZO) -- The tax drama in Washington has provided the top phrase for Lake Superior State University's annual List of words and phrases that should be banished.

To absolutely no one’s surprise "Fiscal cliff," got the most nominations. Spokesman Tom Pink say Number two on the list is "kick the can down the road," which is what commentators say Congress will do if it doesn't come up with a solution now.

Other words making the banished list at Michigan's smallest public university include: Double down, job creators, bucket list and YOLO, which stands for you only live once.

Pink says politics and the election generated most of them this year.
