PostSubject: Words I wish I'd never learned   Sun May 22, 2011 11:23 am

As I walked through town on Friday morning I saw a new beauty salon where a TV shop once stood. I glanced at the window and saw the usual services listed aimed at drawing in a predominantly female clientele. There were pedicures and manicures, scrubs and washed, and the usual array of waxing treatments. This salon though also proudly announced that it catered for hen parties. Amongst the services targeted at that group of women was one I had never heard of before, and after a short while, wished I never had heard of. And therein lies the point of this thread. Are there any words which you have come across which, upon learning their meaning, you promptly wished you hadn't? Is there a word which has you reaching for the mental caustic soda, the cognitive barf bag, or searching for a wall against which you could bash your head? Do you have a word equivalent of those photos of Liam riding a Shetland pony bareback through the streets of Dublin, his chest tassels twirling wildly and with abandon in the wind as he shouts "Gaze on me in wonder and be awestruck at my beauty!"?

If so, this is the thread for you. Simply post the word along with the reason you wished you had never come across it. Please remember that this is the open section of the forum so try to keep your language age appropriate (you might need to be somewhat oblique in your explanations…).

And so to the word which started this. As I surveyed the list of treatments for girls on their hen parties, one stood out simply because I had never seen the word before. And the word was:

Vajazzle.

At first I went: scratch
Then as I walked on I went: [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Then the [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] dropped.
I stopped and was like this: Shocked
Followed by this: affraid
And now I can't help but see Rx playing Bejewelled in a whole new light. Thanks. Evil or Very Mad

Your turn.

Baggywrinkle-

The meaning is quite innocuous, but after having learned it, I can't help but thinking of an old hebrew gents' 'man area'.
Or rep's. Laughing
I learned the word 20ish years ago. It's been a constant source of amusement to me there since.

I would have to go with the "C" word, ever since learning its meaning I have to fight to keep it from coming into my vocabulary almost daily

Not me, but a friend's girlfriend now wife always absolutely hated the words "Gusset" and "Moist".

Of course, as soon as she mentioned this to a room full of drunken men... Laughing

Wheeee hehehe new words to play with.
I never regret learning a new word nor the meanings behind it. Cept maybe the words "Yeah sure no problem." I can't stop saying them.

Here's a hint:

  • It starts with a "C..."
  • ...I can't pronounce it properly...
  • ...And while I'm not against it, it does need a sexier name.

I used to like the word 'nostalgia' but now I don't. I'm sure the word was better when I first learnt it.

That's because the elderly have a lot more to be nostalgic about. Laughing

It was meant to be a joke. I guess it came across as more of a post-modern irony.

You think so? Hmm.
I'd say more likely a candidate for hip replacement than a hipster. Razz

Besides, didn't you know there's a new, better word for hipster? On second thought, it's a pretty underground thing. You've probably never heard of it...
