Something I saw on the FTL just reminded me. The other day when I was dropping Annabel off at school, one of her classmates was trying to explain some swear words to his friends without, as he saw it, actually swearing.

He was busy talking about donkeys for one and then mentioned being a 'smart-' without out saying 'arse'.

I suggested he was thinking of 'smart alec', don't think he approved (;*
