Skr: Was Fahrenheit 451 included in there for delicious amusement?

"The woman on the porch reached out with contempt to them all and struck the kitchen match against the railing.

When I was a toddler, I couldn't pronounce "truck" very well.
My Navy father thought this was hilarious and encouraged me to yell "fu*k" every time a truck drove by.
Needless to say I still have a potty mouth. I did not pick this language up reading Huxley or other great classics. From these books I gained so much more than poor self editing.

Apparently I've missed some major change in developmental psychology in the last few years, since iirc in the late 90s this was considered to be basically the diametric opposite of the truth. Plus kinda the opposite of my experience, never wanted to be Frodo but I thought Saruman knew what was what.
