too much innuendo

There's an old joke about a psychiatrist testing his patient with rorschach blots and diagnoses his patient as having a dirty mind, to which the patient replies, "you are the one with the dirty pictures."

I think we've gotten to that point, or at least the internet and television has. You can't say the word "balls" or "wiener" any more or even use the phrase "grab your" with a huge slew of words. Anything twice as long as it is wide is "phallic" and there's a video going around that because Mike Rowe said, "I've always wanted to go in the back door" on sesame street, it's now notable as "sneaking a dirty joke" in.

But really, if you're innocent, it will just fly right by you.

I don't know how we can get our language back.
