p*s*y I wish I had a good alternative to offer, but I'm afraid there ISN'T a good non-clinical non-medical slang word for it! They're all awful! How did that happen for such a wonderful thing?!

p*s*y ..??
I agree,canaveral,cats are wonderful creatures,playful,inquisitive,agile and ever mysterious. Why not just use the word "cat"..? Is that not good enough?? [Well okay then,try f*n*y!!..it's short for Frances!]

My present personal peeve is when officials say something has been "axed",like a particular train or bus service for example,or a piece of impending legislation.
Surely using such a dramatic epithet for something so banal is completely inappropriate--anyone agree??

I just KNOW I am going to regret this, but F*n*y was my nickname at school as it is a corruption (is that the right word?!) of the name Anne.

It was always used in a nice way and only got embarrassing:

1. When one of my friends called at the house and asked my Dad if 'F*n*y was in'. He was not best pleased, poor chap!!

2. When a couple of my friends, after I'd left school, spotted me in town and shouted 'F*n*y!!!' across the busy street.

:(

This is silly I know, but ever since the first Silence of the Lambs movie I hate using the word "Lotion" Remember....
"It puts the lotion on its skin and then puts it back in the basket...." Watch the movie you'll never utter the word lotion again, I use mosturizer, sunscreen, sunblock, skin cream, but I never ever use "LOTION"

I quite hate the word 'Teletubbies'. Thank goodness they don't make Teletubby lotion! Actually, they probably do.
