i seem to recall cliches like that labeled something more like an 'oxymoron'... in that they're physically impossible, but in a slightly different way from 'giant shrimp' and so on...

But it is what it is, people do roll their eyes and turn on their heels, and there is an end of the day. These words are factual and real.

How else would you say them?

I would like to touch base with all of you and say that we need to avoid cliches like the plague! :lol:

Seriously, it is weird how the super-annoying "game changer" came out of nowhere and is very common now.
