to the following effect -

A. [Blah-blah-blah, whatever.]

B. Hush! Don't let them hear you say that!

A. Why not? Is it their equivalent of the N-word?

B. Worse! It's like the N-word hooked up with the C-word and they had a kid
that was raised by a family of all the J-words!

Pretty funny!

But also really sad, when you think about it.
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.
