Just a little fun fact for your afternoon...

"Moist" is the most hated word in the Engligh language! I had always suspected that I was correct in judging it the most disgusting word in our language, and now I feel justified by having the majority at my back. Some editor of the Visual Thesaurus or something said he suspects it is because of the "oi" sound, because other hated words include "ointment" and "goiters." HA!!
