Believe it or not, I try to keep my swearing down to a minimum whilst the youngest of the children are around or if I'm in, you know, church or someplace like that. In situations like that, I will often refer to someone as a "Stupid Cow" or a "Dumb Cow." "Cow" is my replacement word for "Bitch." [Don't worry, I have a replacement word for "Dick." It's "Dipwad." I understand calling a guy a "cow" is just flat-out crazy talk.]

And the director of classified advertising pooh-poohed ever considering such a thing. Do you know why? Because, surely, she said, the Internet and the World Wide Web was merely a fad. It would soon go the way of CB radio. Does that just crack you up? Particularly as newspapers go the way of CB radio?]
