I'm Just Asking




Is there a Ph.D. in sociology in the house? I have a linguistic emergency. And if someone says "empowering" I'm going to dump the contents of a chili cook-off port-o-pot over your head.

The above-mentioned and highly politically-incorrect adjectives in this derogatory meaning have been around about as long as rollerblades and text messaging. Their relatively young status in English reflects a need to express a relatively new concept that heretofore had not been described or even conceived, such are the challenges of modern language.

Ridiculous, nonsensical, and asinine, although not really synonymous with the banned adjectives, are words which convey the almost comic nature of someone engaged in not one but two modern activities that I feel should never be performed in public and simultaneously only in the circus.
