    1. Boob(s) - It's a lovely word and feature of the female body. :bigeyes: Got to love that old guy in 'Mr Deeds' who yells, "Boooooooooooooooooooooob! :shake:

    2. Food - I like "oo" words... shut up. :p

    3. Poo - It's one of the most versitlie words when you just can't say "s**t"... Example: You can look like poo, smell like poo, and even fling poo. Your dinner can taste like poo, or make you have to take a poo. Etc, etc... :shake:

    4. Flux - sounds futuristic like... :p

    5. Mojito - Not one of my favorite drinks, but I like how Brian Griffin says it. :grin: :rolling:

    Oh, if we're simply going for the words that are fun to say, then my list is here:

    1: tsurara -- the Japanese word for 'icicle'. I like the sound of this word.

    2: mamushi -- The Japanese word for 'viper'. I hate snakes but love the sound of this one and the way it rolls off the tongue.

    3: porn -- as in the way Trekki Monster sings it, the sound is half the fun.

    4: bloody -- I know it's a pretty bad word in England, but here in my circle of friends it's merely a convenient intensifier. I use it a lot.

    5: erudite -- Not only is it fun to say, most people who don't fit the definition of the word also don't know what it means, so it makes a fun litmus test.

    I trust you know of old Saito Dosan, then. Mamushi is also one of my favourite words. :)

    OK, slightly more serious this time:

    Rain
    Spain
    Falls
    Mainly
    Plain

    I have no idea how to make a sentence out of that.

    Rain in Spain, huh? I prefer Stewie Griffin's version:

    The life of the wife is ended by the knife.

    Sadly, Deathmage, I have very little knowledge of Japanese history -- I just learned to speak the lingo while living there for 2 years. I'd never heard of said nobleman -- I just heard the word used once on the street, looked it up, and it became a favorite in my lexicon.

    OK, seriously this time ( or at least insofar as this whole topic is serious)

    doofus
    boondoggle
    sphincter
    poppycock
    masticate

    The doofus thought he could masticate with a sphincter, which is, of course, poppycock, and any further research into how this might be done would undoubtedly amount to a boondoggle.

    Let's see...

    Bamboozled
    Bedazzled
    Skedaddle
    Nevertheless
    Scallywag

    And for the bonus points:
    The bedazzled scallywag decided to skedaddle, nevertheless, he got bamboozled.

    At the moment five words I'm liking very much are:

    baklava
    onomatopoetic
    jazz
    lugubrious
    apophatic

    And the sentence would be, with slight modifications...Lugubrious onomatopoetic baklava jazzed the apophasis

    It's sounds kinda tasty. :nolike:

    Argh, I forgot "poppycock". One of the great words man has created. *patriotic salute*

    Ahh let's see:

    Chutzpah
    Soliloquy
    Malfeasance
    Cretin
    Maelstrom

    I'm too tired to put them all in a sentence though so I guess no bonus points for me.
