    What's your favorite word?

    Ok. So here's the catch. Last spring, when I was road-tripping across France and Spain w/ some friends, we had a competition of finding the "best" word in the world. Voting between two words similar to NCAA March Madness, using brackets to determine the ultimate winner. We came up w/ "sorite." Long story. So I ask, what's your favorite word?

    According to the movie Donnie Darko, "Cellar Door" are the most beautiful words in the english language. Forget who the author was that they quoted.

    Diarrhea.

    Seriously. If you didn't know what it meant and went by sound alone, it's a pretty sounding word.

    And my english teacher once said the least was "hutch." So cacophonous he said.

    "Mountains" would have to be my favorite word, because I miss them. But I'm leaving this dump known as motown soon enough.

    Trashy mouth me has more of the bad words that seem to sprout out on a regular basis.

    Other than that it's ... "Fugly", "Buggers" and other such nonsensical words.

    One of the coolest sounding (IMO) is lugubrious, but I don't think such a word could really be anyone's favorite.

    I'll go with contentment.

    Subotica.

    It's a place name. Subotica is a city in the extreme north of Serbia.
    I saw this name in a book many years ago, and fell in love with it.
    Now, it's not pronounced like it'd rhyme with "erotica", but instead sounds like "SUE-buh-titza", according to a Serbian girl I know.

    Ignoranus. Used to describe someone who is both stupid and an a-hole. Not yet a real word, but it should be.

    It works better when spelled ignoramus.
