    One of the great things about the TO farce, now that it's settled he didn't try and commit suicide, are the euphemisms tossed around yesterday. As one multimedia sportsjournalist wrote, 'he took too many painkillers and had an alergic reaction", isn't that really a euphemism for 'drug overdose'?

    Kim Ethridge is called a publicist, isn't that merely a euphemism for 'paid friend with sexual benefits'.

    well played, dools. well played.

    dude in the office referred to an urgent need to 'grow a tail' before darting into the bathroom the other night. i laughed. also, it's commonly ref'd to as 'needing to najeh.' as in davenport. and, yes, we're a classy group here.
