In the Workaholics writers’ room, there is a running list of trite “comedy phrases” they try their best to avoid. And it’s ever-growing.
Get your screenshottin’ fingers ready. This might be the most important information you read this month.

The news hit some people pretty hard… Ouch.
Well, this would appear to be the nail in the coffin for my Twitter account. https://t.co/XWlecITwjr

But some took this opportunity to add to the list. For the good of comedy.
I support this and would like to add “…because OF COURSE” to the list of comedy phrases to be retired. https://t.co/C6SfvwZU7Y

We can’t say we disagree with some of the ideas.
@John_Quaintance Can I add "Boom" and "Done and done"?

In fact, some of them had us shouting “Amen!” from our chairs.
@John_Quaintance Could you add, "He's standing right behind me, isn't he?"

People of the internet should always unite around the worst phrases of the current age. We’re stronger together.
@John_Quaintance Important work, you guys. I humbly submit:
"____. …said no one ever"
