Ladies and gentlemen of the awards jury: I would like to nominate the word, “WHATEVER” as candidate for Worst Words Ever in the category of Insult.
This insult can be pronounced any of several ways:
- Whatever you say, dear.
The insult translates, loosely, to “My opinion of you is so low that you don’t warrant consideration or discussion, and therefore you are dismissed without a further nanosecond of thought.”
Much love to each of you. Honest. No really. No whatevers about it.
