when at the end of Loki's diatribe? tirade? extended
name-calling towards Natasha, the last word is one I don't
expect to see or hear outside of Victorian erotica. I
found myself wondering whether the censors knew what the
word was, and then, how much of the audience would. I
tried to use it one time at lunchtime Scrabble, and the
only other player who knew what it meant had conniption fits.
