As a typical NPR listener, I was so shocked to hear such plebeian vulgarity uttered in the dulcet tones of All Things Considered's Robert Siegel that I spit my Chardonnay halfway across the room. If I owned a TV, it would have sprayed all over the screen! But I don't own a TV.

Tyrosine: Dumbass etymology:

From Dumb (stupid) and Ass (beast of burden).

Therefore not offensive.

/I had to explain the derivation of Jackass to my son's first grade teacher.


Exactly why I liberally call people cocksmokers without fear of retribution. Who doesn't like a good BBQ?

stuhayes2010: Church ladies don't listen to NPR, too liberal for that crowd.


One of my wife's aunts is the traditional church lady type. She and I don't get along. She hates NPR, for example.

Anyway, she was talking to me once and asked if I believed in socialized medicine (I do). She then asked if I loved my nation (I do).

She then pointed out that I was therefore a National Socialist, and do you know who else was a National Socialist???

I would love to think that she was trolling, but she's...she's said worse things and meant them.

I have always wondered.  The name of this band in English isn't some strange Best Korea style translation of Cat Fight, is it?

I'd say you owe me a keyboard, but I happened to be eating french cut green beans at the time.


Let's just say it didn't make it to the keyboard.
