I came in from doing some yard work yesterday and Julia had left this cartoon from the New Yorker on my desk. Classic. She knows how much I hate the cliches “it is what it is” and “at the end of the day.”
Is there a commentator or pundit or anyone capable of not using “at the end of the day” in a statement or analysis? Drives me up a freakin’ wall. A couple more are the use of “big boy” whatever for something “advanced” or “important”, or telling someone to “grow up” about something. Makes me crazy.
