Congress is in process of proposing a law to prohibit certain words being used to describe another person.
The list, besides a word describing a common work animal starting with the first letter of the alphabet, includes moron, fruitcake, fatso, skinny, boring, juvenile, nerd, air-head, old crone, daffy, goon, bum, flake...
