Today I have a poll! Please rate the beauty (according to you -- no need to try for objectivity plz) of the words/phrases under the cut from 1 (it's the ugliest word/phrase in the universe and it makes you want to throw up when you see it) to 10 (it's one of the prettiest things ever). Let's let 5 stand for "neither ugly nor pretty", so that's the neutral/"I don't care" answer.

Poll #1385948 you write such pretty words, but life's no storybook
