Seriously, you and everyone else, get your panties out of a twist. It's just a fucking word. Would you rather them say 'and then' or 'continued to'? I invite you to go into any high school and explain to the teachers that proceeded is no longer an acceptable word to use. Really.

Remember, people misuse words ALL THE TIME! And I hardly notice the word being used anymore. Just calm down.

I'm actually being the calm one. My comment was a mere two sentences. You decided it was necessary to use swear words and take a whole paragraph to criticize me.

So, I think you should "proceed" to shut up, and calm down yourself. ;)


I see people say that on here ALL the time. I don't get it. What is so wrong with 'proceeded'? It's a perfectly normal and common part of the English language. What's got everyone's panties in a twist?


1. to move or go forward or onward, esp. after stopping.
2. to carry on or continue any action or process.
3. to go on to do something.
4. to continue one's discourse.

Meaning number 1 and 2 seem particularly apt in this case.

No, dont search the dictionary. I meant type the word "proceeded" into the FML search. Hundreds of people have used the very same word in all their FMLs. And that, is the reason people are trying to stop it.

Its annoying. Be original.

Are you also on a crusade to stop millions of people who, every day, happen to use the same words as millions of other people?

Proceeded is a word that works here and in other FMLs. What reason is there to be upset? Be more original with the things you complain about, please.

Originality is a lie.


That's all that comes to mind, honestly. Along with other quotes, but I hate when people say or claim to "be original". We can't all invent something every time we want to open our mouths.


Oh boo-hoo.
Someone on a website used a word that has already been used before!
They can say "proceeded" if they want to. Jesus Christ.
You don't yell at people for saying "said" instead of "vocalized".

The word annoys me so much. I feel like breaking my iPhone when I'm modding and see something that says 'tdayy I proceeded to run ovar mi dogfml'. -_-
The word's overused in the FML community, and that's a fact.

Who gives a fuck about them? I don't. They who choose to read the comments... Choose to read the comments, for better or worse. I'd rather have witty comments with a point then 50 comments all saying, "YDI for being a douchenozzle!" Wouldn't you?

At first I thought loofa was a euphemism for vagina, but then the context made clear that's not what it was. I agree with all the other commenters that YDI for being a man and using a loofa.
