IS IT JUST ME?
Every time I hear someone refer to "the N word", I immediately have flashbacks to the grade-school playground, when 6-year-old girls overhearing obscenities would gleefully tattle to one of the adults on playground-watch, e.g. "Bobby just said the S word!"
Really, people, unless you've yet to reach puberty, it's fairly undignified to identify foul language by its first letter.
On the other hand, nothing is more hilarious than when someone tries to use the euphemism, fucks it all up, and ends up saying the word:
CALLER: I can't believe someone like you is on the radio spewing out the "nigger" word, and I hope everybody heard it.
Well, lady, everyone just heard YOU spew it.
