Inclusive Language Challenge

The Inclusive Communications Task Force at Colorado has created an Inclusive Language Guide. Very helpfully they have listed all the naughty words that you are not allowed to use anymore.

Your mission should you choose to accept it is to write a paragraph using as many of these forbidden words as possible.

The funnier the better.
