Hey Guys!!!

You know what's really stupid?

Poeple who say "Oh my gosh" in any circumstance. "Gosh" is, of course, what people say when they can't say "God." And nobody says "Gosh" unless they're afraid people will give them PC shit for saying "God."

TV is where we find it the most, of course. Either the cretins who pimp themselves on reality TV and sports TV are being told by their betters not to say "God," or they don't want to risk it themselves, lest the fickle finger of fame pass them over for actually having the perverted, foulmouthed gall to say the word "God." (Blasphemy, blasphemy, no one gives a blast for me.) If it's the former, then TV producers are a bunch of craven, nail-biting, bottom-line-licking chickenshits. (I know, such a revelation, right?) But I don't think so. If you told someone not to say a word, any word, especially that word, eventually it would peep out anyway, because it's human nature, and it's a subconscious-type deal, as they say in Fargo. ("Chaska." "LeSuer.") People say "Omigod" all the fucking time, and the idea that if we hear it on TV that the great Christian Pearl-clutching TV-watching Red-State Swath or Islamists or atheists or Wiccans or the National Agnostic's Consortium are going to be offended is the stupidest kind of nervous groupthink I can think of.

"Oh my gosh." Stupidest thing going.
