Default Stricken from the lexicon

I'm not entirely sure where this should be posted (frankly, it doesn't seem a worthwhile enough question for "The Round Table"), so I'll do so here. What are some words/phrases you would love to see forever stricken from the lexicon of the worlds of bodybuilding, powerlifting, and general weightlifting? What terms or expressions grate on your nerves when you hear or read other lifters use them (unless they're doing so in a humorous, ironic, or facetious way, of course)? Here are a few that absolutely drive me nuts:

"Brah"
"Swole"
"Hench"
"Higgy"
"Pinkies"
"Bring it"
"Do you even lift/DYEL?"
"I lift things up and put them down" (Yeah, we get it, it was in a commercial.)

So true...If you have to use "No Homo" then you'd better be checking what you're about to say because it may just be "homo."

I like the ironic use of "no homo". As in:

Hey Ltl you big hairy chunk of man!
(No homo)
