Mark, try to get at least a little hip! ;-) On iTunes, check out the
old song, Cameltoe, by Fanny Pack, released June 3, 2003. Mansour's
dictionary came out two years later.

BTW, according to tonight's South Park, lexicographers have agreed to
redefine "fag(got)" as meaning, roughly, an annoying, noise-making,
Harley-riding, loser asshole dying for attention, among other things.

There's no longer any necessary correction between faggotry and gayness.

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"––a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
