    Wait? That actually your eye?

    Also why are you an important poster? What have you done that make you more important than me?
    yes

    erm... idk, they simply chose me?

    In terms of the your second question, I was born this way.

    Overuse of any word is never a good thing, this word included.

    Horribly cringe-worthy. Hearing it makes me want to punch the person in the ear.
    For the banter?

    I find it horribly cringe worthy when people say it, I'm not having a go at people who say it, I'm just saying it bugs me.

    What do you think? Is it glorified hooliganism or should it be added to the Oxford English Dictionary?
    Surely it's already in the OED?!
