California School District Bans Dictionary Over Phrase "Oral Sex"

Hopefully they'll check for the inclusion of these words before deciding on a replacement: Pooh, coccyx, vagina, titular, penalize, asinine, hump, and Lake Titicaca.

A Menifee, California, school district has banned the Merriam-Webster dictionary. Because the book contains the words "oral sex." The school district is now "forming a committee to review whether dictionaries containing the definitions for sexual terms should be permanently banned." Of course they are.

The district will no doubt consider more age-appropriate dictionaries as replacements. Hopefully they'll check for the inclusion of these words before making a final decision: Pooh, coccyx, vagina, titular, penalize, asinine, hump, and Lake Titicaca.
