It is the old "Echelon word list" all over again: Revealed: Hundreds of words to avoid using online if you don't want the government spying on you (and they include 'pork', 'cloud' and 'Mexico') - Daily mail.

The current word list can be dug up from Analyst Desktop Binder REDACTED but I am sure someone will post the complete list on-line somewhere soon.

Found via Doesn't it make your heart warm to know that your government spies on everything you do online? Lionel Lauer on Google+.

If you want full privacy in your communication over the Internet, use encryption and do not store your data unencrypted or on any system you do not have full control over. Use PGP for e-mail. Yes, sending encrypted e-mail is also a red flag, so encrypt your forwarded cat jokes too.

Update 2012-06-01: Phil Lapsley had a close look at the list and found out some watchwords on it which go back a long way: DHS Social Media Watch List: Phreaking and 2600 - History of Phone Phreaking blog. He writes:
To all the old-school phone phreaks I interviewed for my book who were worried that the government still cares about this stuff and whom I reassured that the government couldn't possiblly still care: ok, ok, you're right and I'm wrong.
