The Inappropriate and Excessive Use of the Word Epic.

My current peeve is the inappropriate and excessive use of the word "epic." What can you whip up for me? -L.D.B

The word "epic" is overused by so many teens
Lip gloss can't be epic and neither can jeans
Your ignorance can't hide
As said in Princess Bride
I do not think you know what that word means

Loud Shoes in the Library

People whose shoes make too much noise in the library. Watching girls struggle to walk in 4+ inch heels is funny, but hearing them walk all the way across the silent study floor is a pain. M.S.

The library's no place for inappropriate shoes
The squeaking and clunking, you're not winning, you lose
Is your brain putty?
We're here to study
Please slip into something quiet, lose those Jimmy Choos

Huggers Who Hug Too Much & Wear Fragrance

It just doesn't seem right that some people insist on hugging you every single time they see you, especially when they wear volatile cologne that is permanently transferred to your body and clothing upon contact. I started my day freshly washed and now I have to spend the rest of the day stinking like someone else.
I think a limerick would help.

You hug me and you reek of cologne
I'd prefer you just leave me alone
Bodily engagement
Causes enragement
Now I smell like each fragrance you own
