    I seriously hate the word “chunk” in any way you could possibly use it. Especially as an appetizing incentive on soup cans.

    discharge, bargain, cutesy

  • Guest

    pussy

  • Erin15tay

    Panties…ugh

  • Celine

    Folks.  Worst word ever.

    “Amazing”. Not necessarily disgusting but is the most overused word of the new millennium.

  • ALLI

    i hate the word “extraordinary” because first of all, to me, the “extra” part means “a whole lot.” so why would you want to be really really ordinary? second, i hate the spelling. it makes it look like it’s supposed to be 2 words when it’s only one. like, what’s going on there?

    • Lucie

      Actually “extra” is supposed to mean ” out ” so literally it means something that’s not ordinary….

  • AlexaPanico

    Squat….It’s not the ‘sq’ that bugs me, Just the the ‘uat’ …..

    The word ‘babe’ makes me a little nauseous now that I think about it.

  • Jennifer

    “Supper”

  • Jennifer

    I hate the word “classy.” The only people who use the word are people who are not.

  • Jennifer

    “Coupon”

  • Jennifer

    “Team building”

  • sam

    Agreed with horny. Uhhht.

  • Ellie

    Couldn’t agree more with “moist” it’s a vile word

  • Erin

    panties, sofa, titties, syrup, amazing, and balls (so you can imagine how I feel about the hideous trend of saying “amazeballs”…).

    • Luckyjill

      yeah- amazeballs… ewwww

      • Luckyjill

        come to think of it, i don’t like the word “ewwww” either, but at least it gets the point across.

  • arielle

    nosh, noshing, pussy, dude, bro, crap, fashionista, crotch, toiletries, fart… the list goes on.

    shrimp…when said by people who produce a long “s” rather than a short “s”.  ssshrimp.  

  • Laurel

    Derek Blasberg is literally the only person ever who has successfully made classy happen. There is a 1000% chance that anyone who says it and isn’t referring to Classy/Very Classy has acrylic nails.

    • Laurel

      Oh, and there’s a word that I hate: acrylic.

  • Guest

    nostril. ew

  • Dick van der Sloot

    “dump”. If I ever hear anyone I know say this word I immediately cut them out of my life.

    “Phantom” – I associate it with the “phantom of the opera” and it creeps me out. It’s such a weird word.

  • LindsBre

    Belly. When someone says “my belly hurts” it creeps me out, use stomach you are not a 5 year old.

  • Dapperbrute

    Ugh! I hate hate hate the words discount, deal, cheap, and any thing a used car salesman might say.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1295090188 Grace Shemwell

    flesh, discrimination, inflammation, geezer, chunky, pernicious, sheltie, shuffle, blubber, and vulumptious …

    I think I’m going to go barf now

    Slit

  • Gialawson

    Gerth. Ew.

  • Luckyjill

    totally with you here on moist, crotch, foodie and horny (and many others on your list).  i also hate “jubilee”, “belly” and when people say “nom” or worse, “nom-nom”.. I think it’s reference to eating? eww.  and what about “preggers” and “preggo”?.. people who use those words shouldn’t be reproducing anyway.

  • Kateland

    Any onomatopoeia.

    “Moist”
