Shit word gets new news anchor in deep shit
Poor A. J. Clemente: he may have established a new world's record for losing a job. Seconds into his first broadcast, he committed the unpardonable sin of mouthing not one but two taboo words into his microphone. He said he thought the mike was off and he was practicing his teasers (whatever teasers may be), when he sent the words "fucking shit" through the ether and into the ears of countless listeners in the Bismark, North Dakota area . . . listeners who had probably not heard those words since Sitting Bull was spotted coming over a rise in the prairie, accompanied by tens of thousands of whooping Sioux eager to engage in a scalp-fest.
A. J. was released from his contract even though he rightfully should have been praised for having spoken two words of such usefulness. Both words can be used as nouns, adjectives, verbs, etc. Of the two, the "F" word is probably the greater. Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsey would have his style greatly cramped if it was removed from his vocabulary, but this is Poop Report, so we must defend the other word with the most vigor.
"Shit" the word may even have a bit of onomonopia in it, but I can't say for sure; I have never had my ear close enough to an emerging turd to verify and have no plans on placing myself in such proximity in the future.
Shit has a great variety of meanings and can indicate qualities from the very lowest to the highest. Now if I may be excused, I'm off to quaff a few glasses of good shit to whet my appetite for whatever shit is on the supper menu tonight.
