I thought of this famous George Bernard Shaw quote when I was interviewed by a BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation) "presenter" (English for "announcer") a few days ago; she told me that her producer had agreed to let me use the word "asshole" to describe the title of my book on the air without censoring so long as it wasn't used "gratuitously ." Then I asked her about using the word "arse" on the air, and she said she wasn't sure because she believed that many people in the audience would be more offended by "arse." The presenter added that she used the word "asshole" instead of "arse" at times because it is less offensive in her country. I laughed because, with members of the media in the U.S., I sometimes use the word "arse" instead of "asshole" because they find it less offensive. And to my American ears, the "ARSE test" sounds considerably less obscene than the "asshole test."
