Ever see those little clicker-counters? Push the button and it
increments the count by one. Even a moron could sit there and count
the various expletives.

Funny that I call them expletives yet others call them obscenities. I
don't find the words to be all that obscene.

[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: It seems funny to me how words/phrases
can change in their meanings over the years. For example, consider the
word, 'mother'. Years ago, 'mother' referred to a very nice older
person, typically with high morals. a gentle person who cared for her
children, etc. Now, if I were to use the phrase '... your mother ...'
or ' ... ask your mother ... ' as often as not an obscene expession
comes to mind. Think of all the little kids who go around saying
'your mama! (etc)' PAT]
