And what about z?
I can print the words prick, cock and dick as much as I like adding coyly: "but I know I have to be careful with the c-word" (2000).
I thought it should be an ordinary, everyday word.
In their sketch, a customer in a card shop is trying to buy a card for his brother, whose interests he describes to the shop-keeper: "He likes the c-".It is often comically confused with 'cunning linguist as in the Sluts song Cunning Linguist (1982 and was evoked by moederdag cadeau maken groep 7 the Not The Nine O'Clock News song and album (The Memory) Kinda Lingers (1982).Bill Drummond mounted a similarly iconoclastic enterprise in 2002, with his multi-faceted event Is God A Cunt?, acclaimed by Arthur Smith as "possibly the world's most provocative title" (2002).If you doubt that the cunt is hated and feared by most of the population, how will you explain the hundreds of pounds spent in persuading women that they have an intimate deodorant problem?They are at once and entirely robbed of their dreadful power" (1987).Oz made a similar pun on 'conjugal "Oh, a cuntjugal" (Nick Gomez, 1997).Finally, Dominic Bolla's film Angel Above - The Devil Below features a talking vagina possessed by the devil.
Tend to become closely associated with the words that are used for these things.
