Speaking of political correctness, here's something that my philosophy
teacher brought up a few days ago that I thought was quite funny.
Beginning word: "humanity"
Obviously sexist. We have to get "man" out of there.

Well, why is it "son," huh? Why not "daughter?" More male chauvinism.
Last Stage: "huperbeingity."
This reminds me: does anyone have a sketch of Jacques Guy's
