Counting Dirty Words
Was Congress really expecting a serious court challenge based on the distinction between “ass hole” the two-word phrase, and “asshole” the compound word? They’re given distinct entries in the list of words you can’t broadcast. I’m surprised the bill didn’t also address the smart-alecky use of indifferently enunciated arse-based equivalents. Some Representative’s aide is clearly shirking his or her thesaurus-work.
Swear-list compiler, have you no patriotism?
