Quote of the Day, Ain’t No Such Thing As Clean Language, Folks edition.

It’s true! “Learning etymology is like going through the attic of a recently dead uncle, who seemed mostly domesticated, but who spent his life having x-rated adventures.”  The stuff that you say innocently today would have made your great-grandparents shudder, and will make your great-grandchildren blush.  The best part?  Thanks to the invention of modern A/V recording devices, they’ll be able to understand them, too!  It’s gonna take a LOT longer for languages to shift, now that we routinely preserve how people speak.  Which is kind of interesting, isn’t it?

Well, it’s interesting to me and this is my website.  So there.
