Anybody have a least favorite Original Series card?

Hate the design, product, of just of bad taste?

  I can't think of many, but I do remember having the 3rd Series "ARGH" as a child and just couldn't understand the parody at all. Of course, I think I had no idea what corn starch was at the time either.

I'll have to ponder on this.

This is easy for me, Series 2 Sugarmess.  No character, not funny, Main titles doesn't even tie to the gag line, blah.  Scores a 0 in all categories other than being an early series which always scores points for me.

Just generally anything with bodily fluids or that depicts animal cruelty.

When I think least favorite I think dull, blah, overly simple, lifeless.  There are some that border on shockingly gross or even scary (to a kid), but I wouldn’t dislike them for that.  Provocative is way better than boring.

There’s probably 20 or so sprinkled throughout the OS, and maybe 20-30 more that are borderline.  But I’m not sure I could narrow it down to the one worst.

I tend to dislike the ones that don't actually change the name at all, but only the spelling, and not in a way that changes the meaning... like "Paper Wate" pens, but using "weight" as the gag... or 6Up, a classic, but that doesn't make sense.  But if I have to pick just one, I'd have to say, "Fearstone", for the simple reason that it just doesn't FIT into the rest of the Wackys.  It's not a product that you can put in a shopping bag, and doesn't have a black border.  It looks like it fell out of the Crazy Labels series and got included by accident.  Not the worst gag by any means... and not the ugliest artwork (I agree with Sugarmess on that one), but just doesn't fit IMO.
