I don’t get why the word “asshole” is censored on television. People can say “ass”, and “hole” is no big deal. But put the two together, trouble starts brewing. Everyone has an asshole: human, animal, even worms have to expel excrement somehow. So why is it so taboo? Is it because it’s directly connected to shit? If so, then why isn’t “ass” censored as well? Certainly an ass is bigger than an asshole. Not only that but it, too, can be directly connected to shit. Is it simply because “ass” can also mean “donkey”? It hardly seems like a valid argument to me.
