Let's look at the origin of a word you *can't* say on television.
It's Marina from "Hot For Words" with your special word of the day.
You know when you meet someone who thinks he is cool, but he is totally not.. what do we call that person?
A douche-bag or course!
I'm sure you've met a few douche-bags in your life?
Why does it keep beeping like that?
YOU CAN'T SAY THAT WORD ON TELEVISION
Really, but they said it on Saturday Night Live in 1980, then Family Guy, South Park?
YOU CAN'T SAY IT NOW, SORRY!
Fine.. the word douche-bag (there is goes again).. comes from the French word douche (huh.. no beep) which means a stream of water which in turn comes from the Latin ducere, which means to lead.. where duke came from!
Hmm.. duke.. like Duke of Earl for example.
So a douche-bag is someone who leads?
A douche-bag is actually something used to clean part of a woman's body.. and calling a man that is worse than calling him a part of the woman's body!
Anyway... if we can't use the word on television anymore.. then perhaps we should come up with a new term!
What would be a good alternative?
A**hat? N**-sack? Oh.. those don't work! I'll leave it up to you guys to come up with a good alternative!
That's your lesson for the day. Bye bye!
