I do love the old english word, reckon. Although, I sound like a west texas hick when I do.

When asked a question just answer, "I reckon and such."

Wow, reckon does not mean what I thought it did.

niggardly.

That word is dead, despite having no relation to "that" word. It's not even from the same etymological source. It just sounds close enough, so it's taboo now.

Tits (the birds) are also dead.

I try to avoid pianist whenever possible as well.

Sometimes I like to use this word around my black friends just to mess with them.

No, I reckon it's all of Texas that uses that word.
That and y'all.

I understand. It's probably just pianist envy. Hopefully the don't get their tits all ruffled up over it.

I can't hear or say that word without laughing. Yes, I am 5 years old.

Why did the space marine go to the bathroom?

It was his duty.

Ridiculous.
#UnbanTheMadman

"Some will sell their dreams for small desires
Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights..."
