(Canoe)   Is "moist" a dirty word? How about "hardscrabble," "pugilist," "squall" and "giggle"? "Creamy"? "Navel?" "Panties?" Moist, creamy panties? Sweet jesus   ( cnews.canoe.ca) divider line

I went to the largest of the facebook groups and posted that, from now on, I'll replace my use of 'moist' with 'clammy'. I'm sure they'll love that. C*nts. Wait. Moist C*nts.

While we're on the topic, though. Words I love:

Ointment (although, it's an impossible word to yell at someone)
Douchebag
Toast
Shenanigan
hokey
zipper

And, of course, everyone loves f*ck. F*ck is just the most elegant all-terrain word.

It's a little-known fact about journalists that if they don't write at least one article per year that uses the word "hardscrabble" in its lead paragraph, they are loaded onto a rocket and fired into the sun.

"Moist" most certainly is a dirty word.

"Moist" is up there with "fondle" and "crotch" on the list of "Words It's Damn Near Impossible to Use in Pleasant Ways." Put all three together and you're REALLY asking for trouble.

I don't remember who the comic was, but I remember seeing someone's stand-up act once where they talked about how different words that mean essentially the same damn thing can produce wildly divergent reactions depending on context. F'rinstance, how "wedged" and "nestled" were basically identical in actual meaning, but seeing a real estate listing that referenced a cottage "wedged" into gently-rolling foothills was about as likely as hearing someone complain about their undies being "nestled" up their ass-crack.

Something about that really stuck with me, because he was right. The ways we use language and the connotations words pick up over time is a pretty fascinating area of interest.

One of the few contexts in which you can use "moist" without sounding sexual is in cooking. Most people like certains foods to be moist (like chicken or cake) so there's nothing wrong with saying things like, "Mmmm, your breasts are lovely and moist," or "This cake is so sinful and moist that I didn't even notice the frosting that fell onto my pants. It really made me cream my jeans."

Nothing sexual about that!

Bah.

Moist is perfectly fine. But a few people got their knickers in a twist about it and wrote about it on the internet then internet hipsters jumped on the bandwagon, c.f. Chapstick addiction.

The Wankel isn't a rotary. True rotaries are where the entire engine rotates around a fixed crankshaft.

My wife has a huge issue with any word that ends in an "oi" or a "oocy" sound. Like "Moist" or "Juicy."

Makes her cringe every time.

Not nearly as filthy as it's big brother, "crevasse"

snake_beater: Obligatory:


Also need the commentary for future giggling:



"Ham Doctor" was just one entry in a horrifying list we made up to shock the future. Here are the others, if you are so inclined:

Voltron Nightgown

Strawberry Smurf

Cherry Split

Caramel Pollock

Greasy Pumpkin

Tangy Slipper

"The Prestige"

Caramel Pollock was the one that horrified me.

All terrain word. I like that description. One of my favourite variants is "kerfarkity" as in "And then it all went kerfarkity." or "This car is all kerfarkity".

Why food companies do not make underwear:

"New, Duncan Hines 'Moist'n'Creamy'!"


As George Carlin used to say, "If 'Janitor In A Drum' made a douche, nobody would buy it. It'd be like RAID underarm deodorant."
