We at Hollaback care very much about good writing. And that is why we feel it necessary to retire certain words when the time comes.
It has recently come to our attention that the word “AMAZEBALLS” needs to be put in time-out. Last time we checked, there was nothing amazing about balls. But we understand that many bloggers cannot remove this from their vocabulary completely, so we say, “Can’t beat ’em? Join ’em!”
We are offering up an equally ridiculous counterpart to start using with equal frequency: horrinipple. An antonym to “amazeballs,” it’s also an antidote to the overuse of two words that should probably never have been combined in the first place. Feel free to Tweet it up and use it in your blog or try it out this weekend at your half-marathon. You don’t even have to give us credit — but let’s give nipples and things we hate the attention they deserve!
Ex: “My new spin instructor is horrinipple!”
We think it’ll be pretty big.
Love, The Hollaback Girls
