"Bling" Becomes Marketing Verbiage

I noted earlier this year that "Bling" had jumped the Shark.

So it really shouldn't have been any big surprise while picking up some groceries and holiday presents in Target that I saw THIS sign:

Bling


Now that "Bling" the word has become a marketing phrase for chain discounters like Target, can we please retire it?

Ridiculous, isn't it? Why do all of these nonsense words that people invent become new, "real" words? Especially those that define something that's ALREADY defined.
Example : "Ain't" - "Isn't"
I mean, come on. If you're going to invent new words, at least come up with something new.
Yep... later.
