No, not those ones, you literal-minded smart alecks

Okay, fine, those too

Seriously, though, produces great articles about words and language! Here's one discussing several commonly misused words and phrases we're better off letting go, and suggestions for what to use instead. If you're still looking for a New Year's resolution, this might be a good place to start.

I'm afraid it's probably way too late for "ninja." Also, I'm not sure why they want to make an exception for "hysterically funny" and not the other ways "hysterical" is used to describe extreme (female) emotion. I don't personally mind the usage, but it seems a bit arbitrary? I agree with the rest, though!

... Actually. Maybe an alternative to the way we use "you ninja'd me" hereabouts could be "you Han Solo'd me." As we all know, Han shot first. That's not controversial at all, right? ^_~
