Ok, you disaffected teens, listen up. We all know you’re too cool to care about anything, but frankly, we're sick of having to pretend to be cool around you. We’re tired of raising our hands for a high five only to watch you pull your hand away, run your fingers through your hair, and say that we're "too slow."

And now the tables have turn.

In a new Marist Poll, “Whatever” was voted as the most annoying word, followed by some other teen favorites, like “no offense, but” and “I can’t even.” What can’t you even? What?!? Please, tell us!

Marist reports: “‘Whatever’ irritates 38% of Americans followed by ‘no offense, but’ with 20%. ‘You know, right’ is irksome to 14% of residents nationally as is ‘I can’t even,’ 14%. “Huge” grates on the nerves of 8% of Americans, and 5% are unsure.”

Take that, teens. But, as it turns out, only olds find “whatever” offensive. 49 percent of Americans over 45 find “whatever offensive.” Then it starts to dip into other offensive youth talk.

“Digging deeper, ‘whatever’ tops the list for those 30 to 44 years old, 33%, Americans 45 to 59 years of age, 48%, and those 60 and older, 49%. Among Americans under 30, ‘I can’t even’ takes top honors with 33%.”

Either way, keep your bad attitude to yourself, teens. And stay off my lawn.

Here are Justin Jedlica's stats:

  • Age: 32
  • Plastic Surgeries: 90
  • Total Spent: Around $100,000

So what's his deal? He wants a physique like Barbie's boyfriend, but ditched working out -- "so not exciting, not glamorous" -- in favor of silicone implants to his butt, belly, biceps, and triceps (among other things).

"I love to metamorphosize myself, and the stranger the surgery the better," he says. "Bucking the norm is so much fun."

Dan Savage had some, er, choice words for Family Research Council President Tony Perkins during a speaking engagement at Winona State University last week:

Tony Perkins tells parents whose kids come out to reject them.

Tony Perkins tells the parents of queer kids to do what Tony Perkins damn well knows drives those kids to suicide — doubles their already quadruple rate of suicide. Why would someone who calls themselves a Christian do that? Because every dead gay kid is a victory for the Family Research Council. ...

Tony Perkins sits on a pile of dead gay kids every day when he goes to work — and he calls himself a Christian. I don't understand how real Christians let that little f--ker get away with that.

Now the video is making the rounds, but Savage doubled down via Twitter: "I'm Dan Savage and I approved -- and stand by -- this message."

(Not Safe For Work -- language.)
