View Full Document: Pax Christi – VIOLENT LANGUAGE

Excerpt from Violent Language Document:

Violent phrases that have become the ‘norm’ in everyday speech

When push comes to shove

Adding insult to injury

Hitting on an idea


Take a stab at it

Shot in the dark

Push over

To be brutally honest

Soften the blow

Beats me

That really bombed

Pushed over the edge

Blown away

Killer smile

Kick the bucket

Set the world on fire

Pick your battles

That really burned me


Kicking around an idea
