    Reminds me of George Carlin’s sub-bit of the “Seven Words” where he talks about two-way words, words that could be dirty, or not, depending on context. Like, you can say “Roberto Clemente has two balls on him,” but you couldn’t say “He’s scratching his balls.” (Paraphrased from memory, probably not a word-for-word quote.)

    The only thing wrong with that bit was the term ‘mortar launcher.’ It is called a mortar, because it is not a device that launches mortars.
