Niggardly is a Norwegian word. So is ombudsman but it is being changed to ombuds-person so as not to offend all Americans except for those of Norwegian descent. Who should “my peoples” complain to now to make this grave injustice right? I’ve written a song about this and the words we can’t say anymore. I really let it out about all sorts of stuff, like being warned by an NPR host I was listening to last week that the word fag was coming up. It was ok for the homosexual author to use it in his essay, he told us, but we should be warned because we may not want out kids think it was ok. Just before that the host called himself a âgrown ass manâ Now kids all over America are talking about what they want to be when they become “grown ass” woman and men too.
I really express myself, tell it like it is in my song, it’s a sort of auditory memorial to the first ammendment. It’s an instrumental piece. I say all the words in the privacy,freedom and safety of my head as I play it on the baritone sax. Does anybody know if NPR accepts those kinds of contributions for their show “This American Life”?
I thought “niggardly” was Dutch and “ombudsman” was Danish- if I were a Dutchman or a Dane your claim would seriously offend me ;-)
