|English term or phrase: Life sucks-correct?|
|Someone has pointed out to me that "Life sucks" should in some way be incorrect, and I am now trying to figure out if this is true.|
Could it be that since "suck" is an active verb it cannot go together with a concept such as "life", or what...?
Please, hope you can help me out.
P.S. Hope you all had a very pleasant christmas.

Please read my comment to William Stein's answear. Other than that, if you are concerned with misused transitive verbs you can always say "life stinks". :)

I must apologize for having (apparently) made some answerers deviate from the actual question and post some - to my mind - boarderline inapropriate comments!!! This was never my intention.
