Hey carey,

The reason it sounds like an urban legend is that it defies common sense at the
same time as it serves the social conservative agenda.  Dictionaries for kids
are really thin in the first place, too thin for exhaustive listings of swear
words, and they're edited for their audience.  4th-6th graders are really young.

don't mean to bite your head off, though.  hearing your potted aunt reel off the
seven dirty words you can't even say on cable in front of the family must have
been pretty funny.
