17 Cringeworthy Words That Are Almost Worse Than 'Moist'

Some words and phrases are like music to the ears — and others, like nails on a chalkboard. If words like “moist” gross you out, you’re not alone. It’s called word version. A recent study by Oberlin College and Trinity University researchers found that it’s not the sound of the words themselves that makes you cringe, it’s the association with bodily functions that grosses you out.

So just for fun, we asked our Huff/Post50 Facebook fans which words make them squirm. (Sorry, we had to.) Here’s what we heard:

1. Ointment

2. Flavorsome

3. Fart

4. Ginormous

5. Robust

6. Babe

7. Eatery

8. Retarded

9. Ooze

10. Mucous

11. Cyst

12. Pus

13. Conversate

14. Passion

15. Baby bump

16. Juicy

17. Nugget
