I don't know about you guys, but I object to the use of the word "Cadillac" in that excerpt.
Okay, this is only slightly a little tiny bit off the topic:
Somewhere on this board is a discussion about whether actual "bad" words (not "scrotum") belong in books for Middle Grade readers. Whether their use should be limited, doesn't matter, makes a book "realistic," sets a "bad example." Etc. I believe I argued at that time (this was a few years back) that, "realistic" or not, I felt that including them in MG books was largely unnecessary and perhaps even wrong. Not that I EVER would ban a book and I don't care for censorship! I was just speaking to what I felt, in the abstract, was right or wrong for MG.
Now here I am with my second MG manuscript complete and --yikes--where did those choice words come from in the mouth of that one character (not the MC)? Three or four instances! What did I do? I stare at the ms. and one minute decide to take them out and imply them or substitute something else... The next minute I think Hey, that's the way he talks and he's not a character kids are supposed to admire, so leave them there.
I have to say, all the hoopla over "scrotum" makes me knee-jerk toward the self-censorship route. If "scrotum" is causing libraries to not shelve the Newbery winner, heaven only knows what their reaction would be to one of the kids in my book using a real "bad" word or two. It's not like I'm writing YA.
