Realizing a dictionary was necessary to alert the public, they created The Dictionary of Uncomfortable Words. Each word is followed by a brief explanation of why it makes people uneasy when spoken, such as: - Abhor: Looks innocuous enough on paper but utterly filthy when spoken aloud. - Bull: In most circles, this word is merely a prefix. We prefer the term man-cow."" - Congeal: Just because gooey becomes crusty doesn't mean we want to hear about it. - Crotch: This word is disturbing even when referring to trees. - Dingleberry: This is one fruit you don't want to eat. - Half-cocked: Sounds like a circumcision that went too far. - Horehound: A drunk with too much money in his pocket on Saturday night.
