[word censored]

It's definitely alive and well around here. Girls and guys say it. Okay, even I say it!

I love Delta Bravo. That's brilliant.

I'm sure I did steal it from you. :) But I stole J@ckb@ll from someone else. ;)

How many of us have used the word in a ms?? Since I write mainly PBs, I haven't yet had the opportunity (although I've been tempted!). I'm pretty sure it will show up in my YA at some point...

Just used it yesterday in my MS! It's not something I would say but just seemed perfect for my MC to say about her co-workers. I'm glad to stumble across this thread and see it's still used.   :lol2

Did anyone catch the fox series New Girl with Zooey Deschanel last night? The slang is certainly alive and prime time as well.

I just discovered that I'll be using it in my new manuscript.   lol.  Talking to my crit partner about the story and describing how one character feels about another: "He thinks the guy is a total [word censored], but..." o.O
