UNSAVORY LANGUAGE

Years ago when I sometimes used unsavory language, I often used the
expression "Bull Sh**." As I grew up a bit and discovered it was
not necessary to use such crude language, that expression became "BS."

Q. What did I really mean when I used those expressions?

A. I meant that something was ridiculous, or idiotic or a half
truth or just stupid. It covered any number or negative formats.
The dictionary defines it as: nonsense; especially : foolish
insolent talk...

I have decided that I no longer will use either of those
expressions in the future. When I have a need to express such
feelings, I will use the word "Pelosi."

Let me use it in a sentence. "That's just a bunch of Pelosi."

I encourage you to do the same. It is such a good word. It really
packs a lot of punch. We are no longer being vulgar. But it clearly
expresses our feelings. If enough of us use it, perhaps the word
could be entered into the dictionary. What an excellent legacy for
the Speaker of the House!

Cowgal I'm ashamed of you! First you're getting naked on airplanes and now this kind of profanity. Imagine using the "P" word on a family web site. Have you no decency? neener!
