I'm originally from Detroit (or at least the area) and I take offense to
that....whatever "that" is...and I will continue to curse when using Word.

Yeah-but... it can't be offensive unless it violates SOMEthing. If
it's not a belief that's been offended... then... what?

Presumably the "GD" was not a reference to an obscure sexual act.
Presumably, it was a reference to ... um, whose wife was that, again,
who was sending him to Detroit?

Anyway, speaking of bathroom humor, let's drop this before Eric comes
back from the loo and drops the hammer.
