I now submit an example of why trying to type in cutsey-speak is bad.
Someone has written on a community on livejournal that 'Michael and David are my two favorite menses'.

menses is a word meaning 'the menstrual flow', and is derived from the latin for 'months': mensis.

Folks, can we please not describe two guys we find cute as being 'my two favorite menstrual flows'?
  • See, I could have been so happy never seeing that in print...
    • See, my first thought was: 'you don't just decide which ones are the #1 and #2 of the at-least-144 that you've experienced, but you NAME THEM???' --then I realized that this was cutesyspeak for 'men'.
  • *laughing my ass off*

    Though I have to admit to using words like "monst0rs." You can blame redshrike and the ladybug for that.
    • Is a monst0r a giant gargantuan place wherein one acquires mercantile goods? Or does it sound like 'monster'?

      either way, though, it's not an ACTUAL EXISTING WORD, unlike menses.
      • It does sound like "mon-store" but it means a big, scary thing that hide under the bed or in the closet.

        either way, though, it's not an ACTUAL EXISTING WORD, unlike menses.

        Good point.
  • EXACTITUDE.

    When you say "cutsey", do you mean "cutesy"?
  • This would work okay in spoken communication, since the pronounciation of "MEN-zezz" (cutesy double-pluralization of "men") would be easily distinguishable from "MEN-seez" (plural of menstrual periods).

    But in written communication, it's simply hilarious. Disgustingly so, but still hilarious, IMO.
  • Just had the horrible thought that Michael and David were a tampon and a maxipad.

    Ick.
