I usually don't post links to comic strips, but somehow xkcd (http://imgs.xkcd.com/comics/coupon_code.png) manages to be one the main ones when I do.

Here's a link (http://xkcd.com/837/) to the whole page instead of just the image. You always want to read the mouse-over text with XKCD! Go back to the previous day for a good take on Science -- It Works!

WARNING.

It contains that awful word for a female dog that is forbidden on BAUT.

In plural!

Please warn any children not to read it. It could cause them permanent damage.

It's been explained to you that it's about context. When used in the correct context refering to a female dog then the word is ok.
Your constant harping at this is almost willfully ignoring the explanations that have been given to you in the past. Please no more

Thanks! I always forget that.

And the mouseover on the science one reminds me that I needed to ask a question here. In a different thread, of course.

In fairness to Kleindoofy, the word is not used in the dog context in the cartoon and I apologize for not including a warning in my post.
