Default Most Hated Words

As discussed elsewhere I despise the word 'boob'. It's just so irritating.

What are your least favourite words? I'm expecting 'moist'...

'moist' is an excellent word. Words I hate include 'pussy' and 'job'.

"Kecks", as in mens' underwear. If it is in fact a word at all.

Just the sound of it. Makes me shudder.

Natty is another.

I had no idea this would be such a fertile subject for you, Wavey. Mrs amner hates the words 'warm' and 'milk', so the phrase 'warm milk' holds special horror for her.

I apologise for my use of the word 'boob'.

I also agree that it's really an awful word.

'Flacid' is a personal dislike!

Well, indeed

Hadn't thought about it before (ahem), but yes, it's a horrible word.
