    Bread and Butter

    Sheryl Sandberg wants to ban “bossy.” What words do you want to get rid of?

    Kat Hermanson: I would get rid of the phrase “I’m not racist (sexist, Islamophobic, etc.), but … ” Anything you preface with that immediately negates whatever you are about to say. Shut up.

    Jesus Luna Tarazon: Let’s ban “Kool-Aid.” I’m not sure what we’re gonna say when we’re actually talking about the delicious drink, but I’m tired of seeing it used in Facebook arguments.

    Miki Jennings: Hater, twerk and moist.

    Where would you tell a non-native to go in Tucson — barring the downtown and campus areas?

    KH: Saguaro National Park is a beautiful place for anyone who’s into hiking or nature. I recommend parking and putting your tongue down someone’s throat while you’re there­ — there are great makeout spots all over the place.

    JLT: Any Sonoran hot dog stand in South Tucson.

    MJ: Everyone should go to Bobo’s Restaurant at least once, for pancakes that are bigger than your face.

    What should students call their college professors?

    KH: I tend to address my professors with increasing respect based on how much I like them. The confusion about titles amongst everyone is a perfect excuse to be a total asshole to the profs you don’t like. They won’t know, but you will.

    JLT: They get to grade your papers, so go with what they prefer. If I were a professor, I’d be totally cool with “yo teach.”

    MJ: Bro, bro, bro.
