Do you type or say the word "erm"?

If so, why?

Why not use "um"? Or "hmm"? Or "err, um", like Jughead from the Archie comics? Do you use it because you saw other people use it on the Internet? Have you ever spotted "erm" in print (books or magazines)? Does "erm" have a place in the English language, or should it be shunned, like the word "kewl"?

My opinion?

Don't use "erm". It makes you look like someone's mental dung is smeared on your mental sole.
