This, I believe, many people would find darn funny. Reason being the darn word is being used so many times in so many ways that I could hardly even start counting them. We use this word as a substitute when we cannot think of the exact word we want to use, or when we do not feel like saying what we want. This word has simply lost its meaning. The thing is that the word has been used and continues to be used so much and in so many ways, that certain phrazes and expressions, even conversations do not sound right if this very word is not used.
