"Funnily enough." It just sounds ugly to me, and makes me think of funnels.

I agree on "could care less" also.

Do non-words count?

Irregardless. I fucking hate it when people say irregardless. Every time I hear someone say that, I have to remind myself that assault charges often end with jail time.

So many cats, so few good recipes.

"God willing" ranckles me.
And what the fuck ever happened to the adverb suffix "ly"?
"He was talking too loudLY"
"She was walking so slowLY" etc.
And, like, you know...fillers when, like, people speak, you know?

I also dislike the phrase "could care less", and the word irregardless.

"God forbid" (Even when it's not meant to be used in a literal, religious way. It's just annoying)

"Pardon my french"

"Irregardless!"

"It wasn't even funny." <---Can't think of an example sentence right now.

What about when people pronounce things incorrectly?

SUNT

Just joking, I don't ever have to deal with that.

Faggot, I hate that word because I see absolutely no use for it. Bitchy little preteen boys raging on testosterone throw it around as if it was an actual insult, and any word that bitchy little preteen boys overuse is usually a word I avoid (I make the exception for retarded, which I will whip out if somebody is truly acting like one, but you have to be doing or saying something unbelievably asinine....like what batshit crazy fundies do ).

As for a phrase, I think one of my least favorites would have to be "you're either with us or against us." Really, where's the "I don't give a shit about you" option?
