Some of my relatives would say, "Unfortunately he doesn't get embarrassed using any word in coversation." I would list those words that I use that embarrass others, but then I might embarrass you and I would not want to do that.

...Have you ever typed in your address and forgotten the 's' in 'blogspot'? Because I was confused for about five minutes, wondering what happened to your blog...

Anyway, I don't know what my list is, but it would probably consist of words I can spell but probably could never pronounce for the life of me...
