14 Nonsensical Words Or Phrases That Need To Go
For people who aren’t quite familiar with the English language, these weird phrases are just downright dumb and senseless. Unfortunately, these are part of modern Americans everyday lingo.

That just doesn’t make any sense. But hey, that’s part of evolution. Still, this would send your English professor cringing and running for the hills.
