By Leigh HurstI’m constantly amused by peoples’ reactions to the word “boobies.”Whether it’s a belly laugh from a 70-year-old woman, an enthusiastic testimonial from a breast cancer survivor, or a furrowed brow from those who blush at a mere glimpse of the word, I’m reminded that we all have different perspectives on things.In today’s day and age, with all that we’re exposed to through the media, I personally don’t think the word “boobies” is going to cause the world to come crashing down in ruin. But then again, I’m a lover of the word “boobies.” It makes me giggle; it always has – even before I was an avid advocate for healthy “boobies”.There are plenty of unproductive slang terms out there for female parts I didn’t even know I had. Many of these terms are vulgar or offensive, and are even defined that way in the dictionary.However, I don’t put the word … [Read more...] about Does Nancy Eshelman think ‘boobies’ is a four-letter word?

It’s no bleepin’ fun being the Denver Broncos. Pressed on why the Broncos don’t run the football more, offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave stood tall under annoying pressure from the nagging media and threw an F-bomb. Reporter: “You lead the league in yards per carry. So you’re really good at it.” Musgrave: “Yeah, yeah. Let’s keep it going. Let’s get some more. Great thoughts. I second the motion. I second the (bleeping) motion.” What’s newsworthy here? Musgrave’s middle name is Bland. Uncle Bill is the last person in this organization you’d guess would curse for public consumption, with a camera from the team’s website rolling during a press conference. He put the correct in PC. But with a single curse word uttered Thursday, Musgrave succinctly and honestly summed up the frustration of working for a 3-5 football team. Nothing has gone the way the Broncos have drawn it up. The seat of coach Vance Joseph … [Read more...] about Kiszla: Curses, foiled again! Like most bad NFL teams, Broncos lead league in four-letter words.
OTTAWA, Ontario — For the seasonal salad at the popular Oz Kafe here, the shavings of Gouda cheese are a salty and delicious culinary accompaniment. To the United States, they are an element of an increasingly bitter trade dispute over dairy products, one that threatens to undermine its decadeslong agreement with Canada. Canada’s long-standing policy of managing its dairy supply with production quotas and high levies on imports has become an intractable sticking point in negotiations over the North American Free Trade Agreement, one that risks scuttling a 25-year-old pact that has stitched together the economies of Mexico, Canada and the United States. President Donald Trump has seized on the practice as unfair and insisted that he is willing to jettison Canada by the end of the week if it does not drop its dairy tariffs of 270 percent. On Tuesday, the chief trade negotiator for the United States, Robert Lighthizer, said Canada was “not making concessions in areas we … [Read more...] about NAFTA’s fate hinges on a four-letter word: milk
Erin Jensen USA TODAY Published 10:03 AM EDT Sep 20, 2018 Watch out Eminem and Machine Gun Kelly, Snoop Dogg and Kanye could be rap's next big beef. Snoop showcased his bark in a very NSFW clip from an interview with SiriusXM's DJ Suss One, which drops in its entirety Saturday. When the host of the "Hip Hop Nation" channel hesitated to bad-mouth President Trump outright, explaining many of his fans "get mad at me when I talk bad about him," Snoop was not having it. "Well, you need to know that a lot of your fans is racist," the rapper whose real name is Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr., said. "Ain't no (expletive) way around it." Snoop, 46, added that he tells people "straight up" if they like Trump, they're "racist" and that he feels Trump "drew the lines" when he started singling people out. "Before him, there were no lines," Snoop said. "Everybody was everybody. We respected everything. We didn’t trip."

Florida lawmakers – well, some of them – love to shout to the heavens that this is a low-tax state. If they could rewrite the rules of language to make "tax" a four-letter word, it would be mandatory to teach it that way in public school classrooms.Alas, while they are spreading confetti to celebrate all those tax reductions, we are seeing the cost to the public good when revenues sink too low. In a state like this one experiencing runaway growth, the low-tax zeal can (and does) have a bad effect in places where the public kind of needs to be fully operational — in this case, transportation and public schools.RELATED: School Board to place sales tax hike on November ballotBoth areas need lots more money to meet demand, and there haven’t been many golden gifts from Tallahassee to meet that.
