Niggardly is even worse. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Controversies_about_the_word_%2...

A friend of mine got hung up by a vendor because the friend said they were being ``asinine''. (No, it wasn't because they offended at being called stupid, but rather they thought it was a naughty, posterior related word...) Good times.


And the even more dangerous noun form of those words, "Niggler" and "Niggard".
