So Played

This following meme is played. Please do not use it anymore in conversation.

“Really? No, really?”

And it’s closely related cousin…

“Seriously? I mean, seriously.”

In the past three months I’ve caught dozens of people from many different subcultures using it, meaning it has filtered into the mainstream. Even a recurring bit on SNL is titled “Really?”

It’s time to find another way to express your incredulity. Some possible alternatives:

“What an unexpected turn of events.”

“I’m very disappointed with that outcome.”
