First time I’ve ever been scolded for not being sweary enough in an internet discussion thread, I think. And here I was thinking that the standards at ALR would be so lofty.

I do bristle at the idea that asshat is a mere euphemism, though. Although mild, I love it for its evocation of the location of the subject’s head relative to his arse.

(More etymology of asshat here.)

Speaking of words we love, words we hate… I love mogul. Particularly when it’s used pofacedly by morning newscasters referring to media moguls (when they’re in the news, as they are now).


A mogul catches Lily Smalls in the wash-house.

LILY SMALLS
Ooh, you old mogul!
