    Advertisers will tell you that some words get
    people attention much MUCH Better then others.
    if you wanna take a full page AD out in a mag or
    news paper you should put few of the words in'it and make
    them BIG , highly visible , shouting out from the page..
    they are the "attention grabbers" for your advertisement.

    The two best word are well known. They are the ones that
    catch people eyes the best. they are:
    FREE and SEX.
    no lie...free sex.
    (this is not a joke)

    That's so funny, my daughter says I do that too. I don't realize I do it, but I finally figured out why. My sister drops the R in California, calling it Califonia . I pick it up, dust it off and throw it in Chicargo.

    Like.

    As in a young person who uses it every 4th word in a sentence to ( I don't know, sound idiotic) .

    "I was like, then she was like and he went to the teacher and was like..."

    Do you like, know what I like mean.

    Egad. I use "like" all the time.

    Well, I am from California!

    Fortunately, I am extremely educated so that tends to outweigh my use of "like."

    Someone above mentioned the word "moist."

    The one that gets me is "meaty." Especially if someone is using the word to discuss something I don't like. For example: a few weeks ago on Facebook, a friend posted a pic of some raw oysters she was about to eat. Just thinking about raw oysters gets me gagging, but then she captioned the picture, "Look how large and meaty these are!!" Aaaaack!

    Aaaack is right. I love oysters but I will not eat them raw. I like the word meaty though especially with the word large . . .

    I'm nasty . . .
