    . . . people who insist on their absolute right to use terms that are unwelcome or offensive seem a little, to me, like those banned users at the Help Desk who fulminate about the first amendment. I went so far as to check, and found that our language offers a number of alternatives to Pragmatus' preferred term for "coward," most of which are much more clever and interesting. "Jellyfish" is fun to say (try it!); "dastard" sounds both gentlemanly and rude; and "poltroon" would annoy Boehner by forcing him to consult a dictionary. Pragmatus' choice is boring and a little childish by comparison.

    "Fortunately, our handsomest politicians came up with a cheap, last-minute way to combat global warming. We simply drop a giant ice cube into the ocean every now and then. Thus solving the problem once and for all." -- Futurama
