The Oxford English Dictionary defines PISH as "a natural utterance used to express annoyance, impatience or disgust." It dates from the mid-1500s.

"Proactiv target"---a free plug for a product---was ZIT. I think ZIT and BARF are the two most disgusting words in the English language. "Zit" is defined as "a small inflamed elevation of the skin; a pustule or papule; a pimple: a common symptom in acne." The word dates from 1966 but its origin is unknown.

Do you prefer pustule to zit?

And what happened to Rewind?

Answer to your first question: Yes, by a very tiny margin.

Answer to your second question: Since 2003, I have written the daily Rewind music/radio/trivia feature for Don Barrett's LARadio.com. Don is a former motion-picture promotion man and former manager of mid-1970s top-40 station "K-100" KIQQ in Los Angeles. After 18 years, he is shutting down the website this month. He was putting in too many hours and not getting much support from the radio community. I will no longer be writing a daily column and I will no longer need to use the LARadioRewind name. I'll be getting rid of it and just using my main screen name, Thomps2525, which is the name I use on most other sites and is the name I should have used when I registered for this site. I don't know why I didn't.
