Ok is it just me or does anyone else's skin crawl when they hear/read the much over used word "yummy"? Even worse when a man says it. What ever happened to delicious, or tasty? I don't know what it is about that word, maybe it sounds childish? Anyone else feel this way?

Maybe you are afraid the Ohio Express will start following you around singing their one hit.

@ProudMary my 2 closest sisters were complete bimbos. The played " Sugar Sugar " Yummy Yummy " and this classic vomit inducing sing along tune all the time.

@ProudMary they each had a portable record player, each could hold 6. 45s. When I beat my youngest sisters boyfriend up when I was 13, and they were 16. All i could think of was this song, and payback

@ProudMary as soon as I was able. I bought a stereo. I played grand funk railroad which they both hated so loud you couldn't. Hear their noise.

@PalacinkyPDX I should have doe that . I apologize.

Nope. No problem with the 'Y' word. It's deliciously short and precise for describing something tasty, mouth watering, delectable, choice, or otherwise savory.

I agree. I like the word.

@bmandjk YUMMY!!

@bmandjk YUMMY!!

The words use in Young Frankenstein is classicsmile001.gif I’m not bothered nor do I use it... dated a girl for 3 years that was militantly opposed. Personally I don’t care, simply not on my radar... but she explained her opposition to this linguistic jewel on our first date... going forward I’m taking it as a red flag.

Good man, lol

You take the blond I'll take the one in the turban

Ok, it sounds childish and I don’t really use it except for ice cream which by its nature is, in fact, yummy.

I say "yum!". smile002.gif

Meh, I think tasty is dirtier then yummy. Yummy just feels childish.

I never thought about it but you are right. It is sort of childish. I have trouble with the word "bespoke" which is one of those words brought back from a century or two that just makes me think, "Yeah, that would be something way overpriced".

Agreed

It’s childish. I use it with my daughter, but she’s growing out of it.

Nope, I think it’s a socially acceptable word regardless of gender. Although I have no particular preference I know people that hate the word “moist”

Seajay88 Level 4 July 17, 2018

Moist is unacceptable.

name them ?

@ProudMary It's even a little hard to say moist cake.

@bmandjk name my friends? Why would that even be prudent? Credibility?

Respect of Privacy > Credibility

Depends on the context. The word itself doesn't bother me at all.

Nope!

It is assuredly not just you. I can't stand all those words ending in 'ummy,' either. Also, when people refer to an objectionable concept as 'icky' or 'gross.'. Let's use adult words, thanks.

2

Worse is the Australianism, 'yummo' (gags).

Yummo is not worse. I hate the 'e' sound on the end of words like biccy mummy, yummy, tummy . They sound like toddler words. But frankly I haven't heard the word 'yummy' or 'yummo' in yrs. I have been known to exclaim 'That's delish!' however.

2

Worse than yummy? Nummy. Where did that come from? Actually, "worse than yummy" is a great name for something, don't you think? a novel? a film? a band? Ladies and gentlemen, put your hands together for "Worse Than Yummy!"

Yummy - No big deal. Nummy, however, is something you say to a toddler. ICK

2

Yummy doesn't bother me, but I don't hear it very often.

I only use it when it's comes to good food.

For the most part I don't mind it, unless it's being overused to describe things that aren't scrumptious or appetizing.
I sent a coworker a spreadsheet and some instructions once and his reply was "yummy." He meant that he liked the project and the instructions worked for him (yeah, I still don't get it). Without missing a beat, I responded, "If eating spreadsheets is your thing, I suppose you could print it out and eat it. Enjoy." He never used the word "yummy" when speaking with me again.
