SAULT SAINTE MARIE, MI (WTVB) - The word "selfie" just irks Michigan's Lake Superior State University. Describing taking a picture of yourself with a smartphone is this year's winner in the university's 39th annual list of words people wish would just go away. The list is released each New Year's Eve and is compiled from nominations sent to the university throughout the year. This year's list of seven words was taken from more than two-thousand nominations on the university's website. Other words on this year's list are: Twerk/Twerking, Hashtag, Twittershere, any word ending in -ageddon, Obamacare and Fan base.
