Scott Thompson and The Panel Dislike YOLO and LOL

When Scott Thompson, K. Trevor Wilson and Zabrina Chevannes were on The Panel, the topic of the day was "Words."

Wilson was quick to explain which word he most dislikes — the word "like," when used improperly.

"When people misuse simile, it drives me absolutely crazy, and it's the downfall of our language," he explained. "Kids, you use 'like' in a sentence, 'It's like he's got a great big house...' Does he have a great big house? Or is it something similar to him living in a barn? Just say he lives in a great big house."

Thompson hates acronyms. 

"LOL makes me ill," he said. "I just refuse to use it. If someone sends me a text and puts in 'LOL' it's game over. I don't respond. I never talk to them again as long as we live."

Chevannes backed up Thompson.

"I was talking to my daughter the other day and I guess there's one by Drake in a song, 'YOLO,'" she said. "Yeah, I hate that. And my daughter said that's a thing now. Her friends at school are like, 'Oh, are you crying? YOLO!' I'm like, 'What is that?' It's horrible."
