What Are Your “Bad” Words?

I recently made a cake for a wedding shower for a girl I work with. The cake was a big joke because it featured a word that she absolutely cannot stand: Lips. I think Momo Fali did a post about this (was it you, Momo?) in the past few months but couldn’t find it to link to it: are there words that you absolutely can’t stand? I have a few, like “bladder”. I don’t know why it bothers me…just does. What words drive you crazy?

Here is a photo of the cake.

It is not nearly as ugly as the 13-year-old’s birthday cake. I was rather happy with it! And the wax lips were a big hit at the party, too!

EDITED: Thank goodness Andie of Sweet.Southern.Spirited reminded me that she was the one who did the post in question. Read hers here!

    All I can think of is the phrase ‘No more chocolate for you!’.

    It strikes terror into my heart.

    Good work on the cake!

    Awww, so sweet of you to make that!

    My yuck words:
    Butt
    zit
    the “c” word, of course

    I know I have more, but I can’t think of them at the moment! Maybe I’ve finally successfully blocked them from my brain.

    You KNOW how I love big words, but if I had to choose, I’d say:

    Paradigm and Synergy

    Both are over used words that alot of dumb people use to try and make themselves sound smarter, but in an annoying way. I had an old boss who used to use these words, and he was so stupid that he couldn’t hit water if he fell out of a friggin boat.

    There is nothing more annoying than a stupid person being told they sound “smart” because they used a certain word, and then unleashing it on every person they meet every third sentence.

    Good gravy, I’m rambling; you must have struck a nerve.

    Love the cake.

    Hi I’m a new reader and I LOVE this post!!

    My two words and I’ll “fix” them so there are no pervs…

    N*pple and P@anties!

    HATE those words…the second more than the first!!

    I hate to even write this word.

    The phrase, in reference to bodily function…”Take a d_mp” Oh my God my neck tightens it just writing it. It disgusts me and hearing it is like hitting a brick wall. Stops me dead in my tracks. Totally skeeves me out!

    Katie: You make me giggle!

    Nukedad: “There is nothing more annoying than a stupid person being told they sound “smart” because they used a certain word, and then unleashing it on every person they meet every third sentence.” I TOTALLY AGREE. One more thing, you should have given your Big Word Wednesday posts a plug! It was wide open for ya! If you won’t, I will: Everybody: go to Nuclear Family Warhead every Wednesday for some new vocabulary that you can NOT unleash on every person you meet in every third sentence! 🙂 hee hee

    Steeeeeeeelllllllllaaaaaa! (bet you never hear THAT) Welcome! I totally agree with that first one. Hate it.

    Julie: Hate that one too.

    Kathryn: You crack me up. But I guess I agree with you on that.

  • Momo Fali

    Nope, wasn’t me. I wish I had thought of it though! You may be thinking of when I mentioned my biggest pet peeve is when people say “a-whole-nother”. Makes me crazy!

  • Melisa

    Yay! Thanks for the reminder, Andie! I’m editing the post so it’ll link up. And yes, your words are disgusting to me as well! LOL
