100 Most Beautiful Words

All I need do is post this and step back ...

Mellifluous
Dalliance
Demure
Dénouement
Imbroglio
Ingénue
Insouciance

BWAAP!

'Ace' Baddeley in uppity mood, coming over commentical as is his wont.

Quoth:

"Enough of this wordery.

What about Jason and the argot?"

By the Cresta of Cremutius Cordus! One arbre-evading slither down a snowy slope and these Generation Silvers are suddenly "'Nuff off verbal wankery - Pah! Where's that woman? Carrie, onward to Base Camp 3.

Where we's going we don't need sleds!"

Carrie [for it is she]:

"Sweetie darling, is that really wise?"

[Note how accurately the poet captures the voice and dulcet tone of Madame Ace]

"Extroadinary achievement. A triumph of oldie agility made a paean to snowboredom thanks to the author's genius for distilling the latent dullness from each dramatic slide.

Watch out for cameo appearance by Silvio Berlusconi coming a cropper atop his customised board, 'Rosebud Jailbait' (€2000 + blingy necklace, from a high school near you)

Worth borrowing only for its marvelous portrayal of The Wife.

Humdinger of a role for Ms Streep, but Central Casting will be hard pressed to plumb the depths of its Rolodex to come up with feckless enough an 'Ace' Baddeley." ~

"On words again. I'd forgotten this MP sketch Good and Woody"
A propos de quoi, I in turn was reminded of this amuse-bouche.

What about ugly words? Is it their meaning, construction or sound that makes them so?

Corfucius said...

That, Grasshopper, is for YOU to decide. Discuss.

i would think sound. i had a workmate who would freak at 'moist'.

and do u remember jamie lee curtis who got turned on by italian - in that cleese movie. kevin thingy starts reciting dishes which is all he know - tagliatEHlle, bolgnAYzee, prosciutto,etc

by which time the comely jamie has dropped to his knees and is tugging at his cod piece.
