But phelbotmist is a bit of a daft word

It's a phrase from my mother's medical books. Pruritis: Itching of the Private Parts. Silly, but the capital letters still make me smirk 20 years later. And titter.

Quoit, those rubber ring things that you threw at school, I hope someone else has heard of them!

We were having a "words we hate" chat in college last week and the highest number of votes went to "slacks". For some reason, the word slacks makes my toes curl up.

I use quiots at school. grin

Skort - they were actually uniform in my old job and are as stupid as the name.

Fiduciary - cracks me up everytime especially in the context of serious conversation it normally has to be used.

Blah, blah, markets, taxes, cutbacks, fiduciary policy demands <cue Bibi rofling on the floor.
