I’m not sure that I have a "least favorite" word. Words are simply amalgamations of letters, diacritical marks, and occasionally hyphens. They can be strung together into sentences. Now, the sentences can cause problems, and certainly I hear plenty of sentences that I don’t like, but again, the words are pretty neutral. Throw any word out there, and in and of itself there’s nothing bad about it.
I remember a story I read in grade school where a man was insulting a woman by calling her, among other things, a parallelogram. I guess anything sounds bad when you’re arguing with someone.
