I mentioned this on Twitter this morning but felt it merited a second bit of exposure here.
This morning, Katie was watching the news and they mentioned how the pollen count this year is the worst it's been in decades. They went so far as to call it "pollengeddon."
I would like to, here and now, make a formal request for all news agencies -- TV, radio, print, and web -- to never again make up words that end in -geddon (meant to resemble "Armageddon"), -pacolypse (meant to be like "apocalypse"), or -ghazi (like "Benghazi").
The last one is the worst because people are turning a terrorist attack that killed many innocent people into a shameless way to attract readers or listeners.
It's old. Pollengeddon, snowpocalypse, and so many others.
Please just stop.
