There's a thread for favorite word, but what about your least favorite word.

Mine would definitely be See You In Toledo (C U N.. you get the idea )

Yeah--that's one of the very few words that I virtually never say out loud. It's pretty taboo here in the States, but one hears it used pretty casually on your side of the pond, no?

Despite not using it very often, that's actually one of my favorite words because to me it's entertaining how worked up people will get over a word.

As far as least favorite word........I'll have to go with government run healthcare. Oh wait that's three.

Oh, I don't even have to think about this one:

"Nosh". What is wrong with people? Why do they have to use such a stupid word? "Aw, dude, come over, we're having a party and we've got lots of NOSH". GRGGGRRGR! Bitches! What's wrong with "food" or "snacks" or "grazing fare" or "various and sundry pre-meal edibles"?

I never even heard of that word........is it a different language or is it regional slang?

EDIT: On-line dictionary tells me it's from Yiddish or German.
