In doing our "Wednesday" themed email blast to She Writers today, the expression "hump day" came up. And we thought, "we HATE the word hump!"

What's the word that most repels you? What's the word that, when you hear it, you undergo an involuntary shudder? Tell us here! And leave comments for others if you think they have really come up with a doozy.

But at She Writes, we also love a good turn of phrase. Earlier this year, I encouraged fellow She Writers to Come and Word-Play! Join the conversation!

As a vegetarian of nine zillion years, I am in dispute with this choice for, even though I am not fond of this product, I am delighted that it in fact exists (and I find the product name an inevitable if awkward twist of words).
the most vile word ever begins with a c and ends with a t.

It has four letters and is a derogatory term for a woman or a specific part of her anatomy.
