There are certain words in the English language that people find objectionable, generally due to a combination of the way they sound and their connotation. Among those words, the one that always tops the list in poll after poll is “moist”, according to the folks at Thought Catalog. “When you poll a group of people on the ‘most disgusting words,'” says Thought Catalog, “moist always wins in a landslide, the most-universally hated word in the English language. If you don’t hate that word, say ‘moist panties’ and you will.”
Thought Catalog, because they have the time and inclination to do such things for us, combined master lists from other sources to come up with their own list of 29 words deemed to be the worst offenders of all time. Why 29 instead of rounding it out to 30? Beats me, but below you will find their list:
Personally the positioning of “blog” in the number 2 spot seems curious to me. Several other words on the list seem much more disgusting; I’m not sure that “blog” would even make my own list at all. But that’s just me?
