Make It Stop

Wheel of Fortune Pop of Color drollgirl

I think I could die happy if I never ever EVER heard this phrase again.

P.S. Please excuse the janky visual above.  My Photoshop skillz leave much to be desired.  But whatever.

Oh jeez, I hate that so much too! Just pop - you don't even need the color. "And this (whatever) really makes it POP!" UGH! Go back to whatever words people used before pop!

I so agree. Am less keen on the word "Pop" which is rarely used here in Europe. Hope you had a nice relaxing weekend;-)

Marisa said...

Hahaha, yes, how do you make something pop? I think I hate make it pop more than pop of color.

Trixie said...

I've never heard it before! I bet it pops up a lot from now on though! LOL

Brandi said...

You and me both!!

haha- never thought of it- very bloggy phrase.

Morgan said...

Love that you took the time to photoshop that! You must really dispise the phrase. :)

Liz said...

hahahaha i actually wrote "pop of neon" today and it's horrible and I know it is, and it's too late to take it back. I should seek penance.

It really is a terrible phrase, along with a multitude of others that bloggers get sucked into (i hate reading about everyone and "color blocking")

Jen said...

Yep- Agreed. I hate the term "colorway" it sounds so elitist and snobby. Just say, "here's the blue and here's the taupe." Sheesh!

Lorena said...

Make me a t shirt.

Claire Kiefer said...

I, for one, am extremely amused by your photoshop skills. "Pop of color" is incredibly annoying, as is every other cliche.

Kara said...

Indeed, barf.

blueviolet said...

I'd rather hear that over the word moist! And I wasn't offended. I was totally messing with you!

Tuesdai Noelle said...

Well, I guess I should consider myself blessed because...I've never heard the "term." Thank God for that rock, ha. I love the personality you showcase without your blog!!

Haaa! So True! And these terrible Blogger phrases:

"Swoon"
"Covet"
"Colour Blocking"

Cheryl Ann said...

"pop of color," "melts in your mouth," and "i am literally (anything)," DRIVE ME FUCKING CRAZY.

Kitty Stampede said...

Sarcastic Bastard said...

I'm with you. I also hate the phrase "over the moon." There are way too many fuckers having babies recently who are over the damn moon.
