This bar banned the word ‘literally’ and now I would LITERALLY rather snort anthrax than go there
‘Stop Kardashianism now!’
by Katie Way
The Continental, a bar in New York City, posted a sign officially banning the word "literally" and it's so self-righteous that I'm literally going to write an article picking it apart right now.

I'm sick of the idea that the worst thing that could come out of someone's mouth is a faintly annoying, very common vocal tic: "like," "literally," "um," vocal fry (which I'm not totally convinced is real?), whatever.
First of all, it's a bar, the place I am most likely to be at my most annoying. When I am at a place like the Continental, a bar that offers 5 shots of anything for $10, I am probably screaming about how my boyfriend LITERALLY liked another girl's Instagram post or how I'd LITERALLY kill for Lana del Rey. I'm not at the fucking Continental to discus Davos.
Getting mad at people, particularly young women, for their benign usage of expressions is literally more boring than reading the Wikipedia page for paper.
It is an icy cold take that really betrays the fact that you not only don't like young women very much, but you will jump at any given chance to discount and dismiss what they're saying. Literally.

So Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson broke up this weekend, surprising absolutely nobody. Who would've thought that a whirlwind five-month-long PDA-fueled relationship between an unfunny butthole-eyed corpse-looking dude and a world-famous pop star who was WAY out of his league could've possibly worked out? The question was never if they would break up, but when.The…
