Grease is the word. I'm starting to hate the word "Iraq." The tall "i," the curled "r" leading to the fat "a" and the smug, misplaced "q." What the hell is that "q" doing all the way out there, especially without its long-time mate, "u?" Did "q" and "u" have a fight? And let's not forget the stupid American pronunciation: Eye-rack. Like a rack of lamb or a ski rack. Really, it's a pretty word, especially when one rolls the "r." Irrrrrahck. Lovely.

Leave it to our government to make me detest a country's name, of all things.
