What thing has the highest ratio of "sounds bad" / "is bad"?

Jun 15
M$180 bet
Resolves to my opinion of what thing has the scariest-sounding name relative to how bad it actually is. To prevent last-minute sniping, this market's close date will be delayed to 24 hours after the most recent bet. (If it closes before I have a chance to extend it, I'll reopen it for the appropriate length of time.) If someone seems to be trying to extend this market indefinitely (such as by placing a tiny bet every 23 hours), I'll resolve the market at a semi-random time a few days into the antisnipe window. Contract resolved automatically.

@Undox This doesn't sound very bad at all, though looking it up it does seem bad. Were you going for "is bad" / "sounds bad" by chance?

Maybe I should just write the name, it actually sounds worse if you censor things. It’s called a Spotted Dick, and it’s actually some sort of cake/pudding instead of a terrible disease or something you shout after you see Richard Nixon in a café.

@IsaacKing I don't think so. Apologies. You could recreate it, I guess. This looked like a fun market.
