Language police

This is going to be a feature now, I think, since I keep running across things that deeply irritate me. Today's edition of things that should no longer be part of common parlance:
  • "I love(s) me some _________."
  • Woot/wOOt/woot (in any form)
  • "I can haz cheezburger" and other LOLcats bullshit.
Not to be a curmudgeon or anything...

Given that it doesn't have any wonky spellings, I guess this is only kinda LOLcats-ish.

I support the following alternatives:

"I am inordinately partial to ---";

"Huzzah!";

and

"I am capable of consuming a burger with cheese".

According to TIME Magazine, ICHC was bought in September 2007 for $2 million.

I don't know why, but that whole "LOLcats" thing made me lmao hard.

Yeah, the LOLcats stuff was funny the first 42 times I saw it, but I'm REALLY really sick of it. Also, I think that their particular form of language is best in its intended context (i.e. cat pictures) and NOWHERE else.
