I'll admit that my prediction was concretized when I turned on my television one week night evening to watch Rachel Maddow on MSNBC but instead came upon Clueless on Lifetime, which clearly stayed on until it finished, but 'duh' is making a come back. You heard it here first. In conversation we abbreviate every word possible, particularly for emphasis, such as obviously. But why would one chose to sound like a 14 your old, actually announcing 'obvi' when instead you can be 16 and say, 'duh.' It's both ironic and not, and for that I applaud it. And will now feel justified in using it heartily.
