My family actually had this debate years ago. My sister and I couldn’t understand why this word was added to the bottom of the list right after “turd” and “fart.” Whatever the meaning that my PARENTS got from this word had been lost somewhere between the generations and we thought it was the same as calling someone a “geek.” I believe my sister was actually grounded for uttering this “profanity.”
It’s hilarious for me to find this debate raging here, since we have taken in recent years to taunting my father with this language. Saying these words over and over in front of him and pointing out to him that he can no longer punish us for our language. I’m sending him a link now.
Hi Dad! Fart. Turd. Dork. Crap. Are THOSE the words you don’t want me to say?
