Oh, those four-letter words
From the We Must Protect The Children files:
"I realize people hunt in this area, but I still don't think that warrants the teaching of this word to my daughter or any other child," said Mrs. Sousa.
What word is that?
The word is "gun".
"Look out! He's got um, wait one of those things, you know?"
(Explanation, for those requiring one: Mrs. Sousa's Canadian, so it takes four of her letters to equal three of ours.)
