The word “literally” has been mangled and misused so much over the past few decades, you could say it’s literally been destroyed.
Well . . . there’s a bar in New York City called Continental that’s SO SICK of people overusing “literally” that they just instituted a new policy. Anyone who’s caught using the word inside has five minutes to finish their drink . . . and then they have to leave.
But if you start a sentence with “I literally,” then you don’t even get the grace period and you get kicked out immediately.
