Tuesday Word: cacospectamania

Cacospectamania is an obsession with staring at repulsive things, an inability to pry your eyes away from the sight of a gruesome car accident, your roommate attempting to eat the burrito they assembled at three in the morning with the aid of a pair of oven mitts and some salad tongs, or your first cold-weather electric bill (and you haven't even dusted off your revolving 9-million-watt Frosty the Snowman lawn ornament yet). See also: Why I have been continuously refreshing the Twitter feeds for various horrifying hashtags for the past hour. Ahhh, masochism.
