dirty words

aside from being a new entry in my running list of "things that sound dirty but aren't," this is a particularly fitting word o' the day b/c, appearing as it does on my webpage, it has a certain self-refential nature:
grubelsucht: the drawing of overly fine distinctions [hair splitting]; worrying over trifles. seen particularly in obsessive/compulsive personalities.

    How do you pronounce grubelsucht, or however you spell it?
