Catch Phrase of the Century

What is your vote for the most over-used catch phrase of the century?

Before you all say “Is That Your Final Answer?”, remember the classics like “Where’s the Beef?” and “You Bet Your Bippy!”. Or step into the (way!) Wayback Machine to dredge up “Twenty-three Skidoo!!” or “'Tain’t Funny McGee!”

If I hear “…of the millennium,” “the new millennium,” or any phrases containing the word “millennium” again I will run barking into the streets.

So do you think that next year, we’ll have to endure the whole millennium hype again for those of us who can count? Or will advertisers just lay it to rest?

Whoops, was that my cynisism showing on my last post?
