Junk food for sentences

H/T ('hat tip', meaning a tip of the hat) to PR Daily for the great image. Laura Hale Brockway used it to illustrate her blog '20 phrases you can replace with one word'. She has a great list of verbose nasties, and invites commenters to offer their own. I don't have a favourite - they're all complex carbohydrates for sentences. My advice: put your organisation on a diet of good, healthy, meaningful words.
