I've been working on taking the word 'retarded' out of my vocabulary, but I've never been able to come up with a good (inoffensive) replacement... until now: 'daft.' If I can overcome the weird "are you British?" reactions, I think it would be a wonderful substitute.

What do you think? Feasible? Weird? Daft?


  1. So are you doing this because Sarah Palin is against the R word? I know you follow her in all aspects of your life!

    Seriously though, I think that's a good goal. I think using "retarded" as a derogatory term is a lot like using "gay" as a put down. It just shows the meanness of the person using it. I will join the "daft" brigade.

  2. Daft.... daft like Jack! I'm with you
