Well, if "boody shakers"/"booty shakers" is all right, then why not "titty
shakers," too? When I learned them back in 1942, as a first-grader, the two
words had the same degree of obscenity. Why not the same degree of lack of
obscenity in 2015?

"Time brings about a change," to coin a phrase.

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.
