Last month, the Grizzly
-Bitch- Sow of the Great White North appeared on Faux News and uttered the neologism, "refudiate," in cynically urging the POTUS 44 and the First Lady to "refudiate" (searching for "repudiate") the reverse racism of the NAACP. Today's funny papers brought Rat's neologism, "rudify," to "Pearls Before Swine." Reasonable Goat, who eschews e-mail, confronts Rat at his keyboard. Goat tells Rat to "Please make your evil lips stop moving" and that is directed straight at the Grizzly Sow of the Great White North: "Please make your evil lips stop moving, you ignorant bitch!" If this is (fair & balanced) language law enforcement, so be it.
