    • I’ve been calling the barbarians with the guns and the Hiluxes Da’esh ever since I read they consider it derogatory, even though it’s a reasonable transliteration of the group’s Arabic acronym. I never figured that would be the final, mortal blow to a bunch of bloodthirsty, medievalist lunatics—in large part because I’m not stupid—I simply decided not to call them what they wanted to be called.

    • Speaking of stupid, everything the Right is demanding! the US (and the West generally) do about Da’esh is exactly what Da’esh wants us to do. Why do Righties hate America?

    • It’s always lavatories with some people. Makes me wonder if they were potty-trained at gunpoint.

    • I have two words for every white person having a moan about reverse discrimination (remember please, if I were any whiter I’d be translucent): honky, please.

    What should we call the ones I called the barbarians with the guns and the Hiluxes? The World in Words podcast (pri [dot] org [slash] stories [slash] 2015-11-17 [slash] isis-isil-or-daesh) asked that question, and the answer is interesting. And kind of complicated.
