"Near-miss"

I'm a bit off topic here, but this phrase annoys me a lot.

Near-miss? surely then you hit?

I think it's the fact that it's incorrect that annoys me, not the fact that I hear it all the time, though come to think of it . . .

I would like to nominate a whole book to this topic Slight of Mouth I will spare the writer (see Daytona Magic). I hate canned lines in magic shows it just shows how un-creative some magicians can be with there patter.

I always hate it when people say "you cant have your cake and eat it too."

why not? its my cake!! the correct phrase is:
you cant EAT your cake and HAVE it too! (because you've eaten it already)

We weren't ten minutes into the September 11th attack before I heard that lisping dullard, Barbara Walters, start ratchet-jawing about "closure."

Every time I hear a journalist use this term, they immediately go into the "doesn't reasearch/doesn't think/boilerplate stimulant-response" category. The pallid unoriginality on the part of magicians is nothing compared to the Los Angeles Times and their incoherent progeny.
