Zeitgeist: "The Second Derivative of Green Shoots is Positive!"

From Econompic:

...Jake, if there is anyway possible to efficiently generate a graph on how often "green shoots" or "second derivative" is uttered on CNBC when non-apocalyptic data is released please do it.

Here is the best I could do (the 'second derivative' search was too dominated by "actual" second derivative [i.e. mathematical] searches)

Though this doesn't answer the question as to which term is more annoying?
