RE: RARA-AVIS: words you now can say on TV, at least on cable

May I recommend to all two books by Hugh Rawson: THE DICTIONARY OF EUPHEMISMS, or how to avoid saying what you mean, and WICKED WORDS, how to say it.

Incidentally, "cunt" is not a euphemism, but is a very old word, and is in fact the proper English word for - will, you know what for. On another note, the English word for the backside is "arse". "Ass" is a very, very old euphemism, now widely considered filthier than the word it replaced.
