Euphemisms

STATE OF AFFAIRS 01/04/11:  Whether we're over the hill, under the weather, in the soup, or out to lunch, we love euphemisms! We use them everyday to stand in for the taboo; softening, often with a laugh, topics difficult, embarrassing, or personal. Join us and our guest Ralph Keyes, author of the book Euphemania: Our Love Affair with Euphemisms, as we tour colorful expressions people play with every time they talk.
