Why the right word is so important:

A man went to a surgeon and said, "I want to be, uh, castrated." "What?" said the doctor, "Surely you don't want that." "Yes," said the man, "That's what I want, to be, uh, castrated. I insist I be, uh, castrated!" The doctor told him to check into the hospital. When he did he was stripped, laid on a cart, wheeled into the operating room, anesthetized, and WHOP!!--off they came. The next day, he woke up in a double room & wanting to be sociable, asked the man in the next bed what he was in for. "Oh, I was circumcised," the man said. "Son of a bitch!! That's the word I was looking for!"
