Binomial nomenclature

With head resembling a p-e-n-i-s This mutant has its own genus Just how it evolved Has not yet been solved But it’s named T-rumpus meanus Author’s note: This monster is suitable for study and might be kept in a secure supercooled freezer. If it ever were released on civilization, the effect would be like that of smallpox. (The software removes certain words so dashes were required).

Yes, it appears the code has been written to prevent certain words. However, it doesn’t decipher the context and appropriate use of language. Personally, I don’t see the harm in using any word in an appropriate context. I remember reading Travels with Charley by Steinbeck. Should that book be banned? The soup does not need to be strained. If there is anyone abusive or vile, they can be limited appropriately, but that requires careful consideration.

LOL What a witty post, Duke! Your use of the rhyme and meter make for a fun limerick. Best wishes, Carolyn

Carolyn, yes we are disgusted by the craziness. At some point more people will realize how we are in peril.
