Scary/Disgusting Words

Maybe it’s because I’m from Teeeeex-uuuuuuuuhs and, according to other folks, we taaaawk funny but the word Hezbollah just doesn't roll off my tongue.

My mouth wants to pronounce it Hez-BO-luh, like e-BO-la.

Hez-bo-LAH just doesn’t feel right.

On another note, I put the word Ebola on top of my list of the world’s scariest/most disgusting words:
  • Ebola
  • chancre
  • pus
  • ooze
  • phlegm
  • maggot
  • carbuncle
  • sucking chest wound
  • Bubonic plague
  • Dengue fever
  • Incubus
  • Succubus
  • Nosferatu
  • necrophilia
  • living dead
  • toenail fungus
  • infected armpit hair
  • anal fissure
  • necrotizing fasciitis
  • greenish, foul smelling, foamy discharge
Aren't you glad you stopped by today?

Those are some awesomely disgusting words.

Reading "anal fissures" makes me think of summarizing medical records. Hahaha.

gnightgirl said...

you forgot "smegma"

Peggy said...

Wow - great list of band names!

Laurie said...

Jen - Aren't medical records entertaining?

GnightGirl - I had to look up smegma. Yuck!!! It will be on all future disgusting word lists.

Peggy - I hadn't thought of that! I vote for The Smegma Chancres.

Popeye said...

Um, ew.

Laurie said...

Popeye - :) (I hope it at least helped to shake you out of your writer's block.)

Damn, !!! After I finished heaving I was going to add infected hair follicule and smegma, but I see great minds think alike!
I think over all, the sucking chest wound would just about finish me off!

Laurie said...

Al - How could I forget anal leakage?! Thanks.

SO - I hope you weren't having lunch.

Jersey - I had not even heard of smegma before. Now I can't get the Google Image out of my head.

"Smegma!" Baahaahahahahahaa. One time when I was really, really, really mad at our good friend, Jack, a/k/a Fluffy, I told him he was smegma. Ah the good times!!! xoxo Poodles

Laurie said...

Poodles - I swear to you, I never heard that word until today. ((shiver))

I think these two words together once you know what it means has got to be the grossest thing ever! To do this you must be on crack or meth or just disturbed.

Smegma Fetishism
Smegma fetishism is rare but there is a small subculture, mainly within BDSM, where the dominant partner allows smegma to build up in the foreskin. This is done for the sole purpose of making a submissive partner clean the foreskin using their tongue or other body parts. Doctors have said this practice is inadvisable but not particularly dangerous.

Laurie said...

Zina - "Inadvisable"...that's an understatement.

Zina said...

At least your blog is informational and educational.

Laurie said...

Zina - Always!
