Are you sick of hearing people calling things awesome? Or fabulous? We're collecting people's least favorite superlatives and running them by author Arthur Plotnik to see if he can come up with alternatives. He's so sick of the word "awesome" he's written an entire volume of superlatives in "Better Than Great: A Plenitudinous Compendium of Wallopingly Fresh Superlatives."

Tell us what superlatives you hate. Also, if you have a favorite superlative, let us know that too.
