Bad Word Pairs #036

“Arm Pit”

It’s bad enough our underarms (especially us brutish oafs of the male variety) have odor problems to deal with, but they also have a less-than-flattering moniker to suffer through.

An “arm” is a slightly awkward but mostly benign word. And “pit” on its own is pretty harmless (unless it’s a cherry pit, then it can be deadly).

But when you put the two together, you get a science fair project of a phrase for a body part that already has the deck stacked against it.
