One of my friends has an awful, nauseating habits of referring to chicken breast as "chicken boobies". She catches herself mid-way when I'm around, but just the fact that she STARTS SAYING IT is enough to make me livid!
Okay...

but I have to say it makes me giggle.
A friend of mine went to a very conservative bible college and said that a friend of hers there was so conservative that she said "chicken chest" instead of chicken breast. I nearly peed myself laughing at that one.
I'm singing this song tonight (and tomorrow and Saturday) in a dirty holiday cabaret: http://www.boreme.com/boreme/funny-2005/xmas-boob-job-p1.php

I get to sing about bulging chest pontoons! And there are lots of other strange phrases in there.
I hate hate hate "boobs", because it's an ugly word, it means "stupid person" to me, and the biggest reason of all, it has become the word most people use. "Boob job" is incredibly common. Even worse than that, and also used casually by lots of people, is "boobies". That might be okay if you're a two year old. Adults? WHY???

The other terms are just too silly to annoy me, I guess. "Tits" is my term of choice, if for some reason I don't feel like saying "breasts". Or if I was talking to my mom, "bosoms".
i hate "boobies" worse than "boobs"-- and for the second list, i add "Thelma and Louise."
and "Laverne and Shirley."
You left off "Breast" and "Litovsk". ;)

That's 'Brest.'
i have never heard "dirty pillows" before, but mine are quite clean, thank you very much!
I'm pretty sure that's a Carrie reference. :)
I think you're right.

(I still hate it. :( )
Or maybe PJ Harvey (or Austin Powers).
Okay, I misread the poll and posted my fave "tits" out of that list.
My least fave is "rack"
its hard to pick which one I hate the most.
Exactly!
I third the "boobies" hate. Can barely even stand to type it.
I forgot to thank you so much for not making the first part be one-choice-only!
You forgot Bodacious Tatas!
:-)
Once in one of those stupid descriptions they put under my breast porn, they referred to my breasts as fun bags. Gross gross gross gross gross! But whatever, they paid me well, and it doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things.
I'm impressed you have 10 euphemisms I didn't know.
I kind of like the term "Sweater Puppies," and that's a new one on me.
