Maybe it's just me, but I'll kick off with:
Booby monster (or any kind of 'monster')
Figetbum (not seen this often, but it is so horrific I can't forget it)
Snuggly cuddles (see also milky cuddles,and sleepy cuddles or snuggles)
Newborn, used as a noun, not an adjective - as in my newborn, not my newborn baby.
I'm sure I will think of some more!

No is a complete sentence.
Did you mean to be so rude?

I hate <hands up a grip> or pictures or grips or any other sort of 'hilarious' grip offering.

I also hate - rant over - and - discuss.

Redglitter Sun 24-Sep-17 20:02:17

I hate when people use 'think' to illustrate a point when they don't want to actually use the real names

My son's names both begin with D think David and Daniel

My daughter has 2 friends with similar names think Hannah and Anna

We get what you mean don't patronize us with examples

Absolutely hate sanpro

Interesting first posts

Argh I agree that 'Dear Reader' is the worst! It sounds so smug, and makes me cringe when I read it.

Also hate 'get your ducks in a row'.
