In which Lady Z decides censorship is an underused tool of civilized society.

I’ll just cut to the chase here, people. As far as I’m concerned, my delicate, innocent ears should not be subjected to the following terms when I watch television:

Wipe
Probe
Urinary
Erectile dysfunction
Genital herpes
Spontaneity

“Fuck,” “cunt,” “asshole”—whatever. But “wipe”? No. Never.

  1. Way-way-WAIT. Just. WAIT. What is wrong with spontaneity? And why am I the first responder to protest this? Are we talking spontaneous erectile dysfunction? HA! Spontaneous cupcakes? YUM! I like surprises. Usually. But I have a feeling I’m not going to like the surprise I’m headed for upon finding out why you don’t want to hear about spontaneity on TV alongside probes and wiping. Do tell.

  2. wipe?

    wait a minute – does this list apply to beavis and butthead?

    it would be a damn shame if “asswipe” were out-of-bounds.

      Hmmm. Oddly, the prefatory “ass” cancels out the revolting quality of “wipe” for me. “Asswipe” is okay—but only in the pejorative sense.
