Victoria's Secreto

Thinking of other linguistic oddities, I came across a new favorite word while reading a Mexican magazine: "zozobra." It translates as "uneasiness, anxiety."

But having the twisted mind that I do, I imagined it to be some new type of Mexican lace-up bustier/lingerie thing. Just think of the marketing possibilities: "Naughty Tropical Señoritas, Wearing This Year's Sexiest, the Zo-zo BRA."
