Words I really dislike

Smoothie, foodie, and especially hoodie.

These diminutive -ie suffixes are what your great grandparents attached to everything.  Smoothie: no idea from whence it came.  Foodie:  the new Epicureans.  Disgusting.  Hoodie:  Used to be awesome when worn by medieval mysterious types and 1980s athletes.  Hood rats and slackers champion their wear today, but there's nothing diminutive about cultural rot.
