Pickles (9/4/09)

09-04-09 (Pickles)

Today’s Pickles reminds me of those not-so-subtle euphemisms my friends and I would use when we were in elementary school; euphemisms like “a-double snakes hole” or “h-e-double hockey sticks.” That was back when “hell” was considered a swear word and no amount of logic or argument, like the fact that it  appears in the Bible, could persuade an adult that it was okay for a child to say it. Today, the phrase “what the hell” is so popular that it’s become unnoticeable. But mutter the phrase “what the heck” and you’ll probably earn sideways glances from anyone within earshot.
