The Cliché Jar

You know what clichés do?

They stunt creative thought.
They drain conversations of spice.
They are a linguistic hole.

If you catch yourself using a cliché, just leave a comment on this post.

I'll do the same.

Please help stop lazy communication.

Was your jar left on a hill in Tennessee?

Better a cliched comment than none left at all, Splotchy. When I read thirty blogs in a row, all essentially on the same topic, it's tough to be supremely original.

Did I help give you this idea with my "time of my life" sentiment about working on your film? In any case, I shamefully submit it.

I won't stop until "I put the Ho in Hockey" IS a cliché...

This is a great idea. Many hands make light work, etc. etc.

Monkey see, monkey do.

Does this mean I have to take the Cliche Finder out of my bookmark bar? Well, I've made my bed. Now I must go lie in it.
