Delightfully Unpleasant

So, I was hangin’ out at work, and on my break I had a brief discussion about words I would consider ‘delightfully unpleasant’. I think we all know what these kind of words are, even if we call them something else (fantastically uncomfortable, etc.)

The initial word in question was ‘moist’. It’s a blasé example now because everyone dislikes the word moist, (well, I don’t, hence this post) and they can articulate why, but it does a good job of illustrating what I’m getting at.

There are words that – probably because of what we associate them with – make your brain crawl when you think of them. I think we should use them more, because they are hilarious.

So, just throwing this out here, try using these words more to spice up a conversation while making someone very uncomfortable:

  • moist
  • girth (and its derivatives: girthy, etc.)
  • seep (and again, derivatives like seeping or seepage are super fun)

Can you think of more? Leave suggestions in the comments!

New Thread

Hi folks! (I’m assuming that someone will read this eventually) There’s a new category up called “Arguments With a Hamburger”

I have, and continue to write absurd things. It’s like talking but with words. I also really liked the style of this one bit I made a while back called Arguments With a Hamburger. There was no exposition of any kind, only dialogue, and I really thought the medium was cool. So I decided to post the bits here.

Well, don’t let me tell you how cool it is, you tell me how cool it is! (Please, my self-esteem could use it)
