No reference to Schmitty's douchebag jar, Slate? http://www.youtube.com/v/SlsVc7TAFNI" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="170" height="140
This post speaks to me, and not because I am one!My daughter, who is in 5th grade, heard a boy in her class say use the word "douchebag," so she told me about it and asked me what the term meant. I gave her the literal meaning (which kind of grossed her out), and then said, "Honestly, I'm not quite sure how something like THAT managed to evolve into an insult." And, I assured her that I was sure the boy using the word had no idea what it meant anyway. Let's just say I'm learning that 5th-graders like to "explore" the language, to put it mildly. I'm proud to say, my daughter still whispers and spells out bad words, and is convinced "Shut up!" is a curse (well...she does this at home, and I haven't received phone calls from the school to the contrary).Sp thank you Adam, once again, for enlightening me!
Sp = So (in the last line). Too quick with the keyboard!
I was amused to hear, on some movie edited for basic cable, the epithet "douche[bleep]" (bleep actually being silence). Seems like they picked the wrong half to cover up.
