This and every Monday, the Bweinh!tributors, having convened in secret for hours of reasoned debate and consideration, will issue a brief and binding ruling on an issue of great societal import.

This week’s question — What is the ugliest English word?

Steve delivers the ruling of the Council, joined by Djere, David, Erin, and Connie:

Phlegm. It reads ugly, it sounds ugly, it simply embodies ugly.


MC-B offers this opinion, joined by Tom and Mike:

Gnash. Doesn’t sound too bad, but when written, it’s easily twice as unpleasant as it sounds.


Chloe offers this opinion, joined by Job:

Diarrhea — you cannot say it without flinching.


Kaitlin offers this opinion:

Ugly. Nothing is uglier than ugly.


Josh played no part in the determination of this issue.


Next time: What is the most useful animal?

    If it were possible, I would have joined Chloe’s answer too. It’s a good one.

    For the record, I find many other words far uglier than phlegm. They’re just not fit for print.
