at first it doesn't seem like a nice word (2 hard 'c's and reminiscent of colon, colic, and puke) but it actually fits nicely in the mouth with a variety of vowels
>"get the scare of it"
heard recently, think it's a localism. It's where you develop a fear of something (like, if you have a near miss in the car and get too scared to drive, you've got the scare of it)

Related I like cockroach as an insult. They're disgusting and the word itself sounds disgusting and if I'm calling you that, it's because you're disgusting.

When I was in the sixth grade, there was this kid that nobody really liked, but didn't really bully either. One time he annoyed me and it just randomly came into my head to say "shut up you cockroach" and I could tell it really hurt his feelings because at twelve you might be prepared to be called gay or faggot or something, but who could have seen cockroach coming?
