Horrible Words

The word "moist" is often reviled as the worst word in the English language. In my opinion, "moist" has some stiff competition in the following:

1. Slacks
2. Dungarees
3. Galoshes
4. Groin
5. Loins
6. Engorged
7. Pantyhose
8. Girdle
9. Bulbous
10. Gaily

The only thing I can think of that is worse than these 10 words individually is all of them used together in a single sentence. I'm afraid to even try. Moist slacks, anyone?

  1. "Slacks or dungarees today," he wondered, "and which go best with galoshes -- it's moist out -- to cover the engorged, bulbous, loins in my groin." He briefly considered, gaily as it were, a girdle and pantyhose instead, but decided he'd be too hot a mess if he went out that way.
