Major Pet Peeve

I was just sitting here, with CNN on in the other room, and the news woman said, “Houston we have a problem…with the plumbing.” Something about the space shuttle, but who cares. The point is that “Houston we have a problem” is the hackiest, lamest cliche ever, and I see and hear it constantly. Just watch, the next time the Phils play the Astros, if we lose, the Inquirers headine will read, “Houston, We Have a Problem.” This drives me insane. I swear, people (especially newscasters and newspapers) use this line all the time and it makes me nutty. It’s not funny, it’s not original, it’s just stupid. What tv and newspaper cliches get you angry?
