I just used it and I feel like doing something terrible to myself as punishment. What a homosexual word.

There are several food-related words I dislike-- "lunch" and "meal" to start with. I hate the word "savory" on the basis it's a meaningless, weaselly marketing term that nobody would actually use in spoken conversation.

What are you talking about? Savory is a totally valid word. For example, savory vs. sweet pies,

Savory is actually a word used a lot in cooking.

Stand in frot of a mirror and say the word "noodle". You will either laugh or feel the hot flush of shame on your face.

I hate people using breakfast incorrectly to mean meal before 12' Noon. The meaning is in the word, for christ's sake!
