The Merc has become such a ground-breaking rag...and so risque! Such naughty writing using (tee-hee!) big grown-up four letter words; everywhere!! Will it ever stop? Even the advertisers are now so hip they use (get this!) awfully super naughty words in their ads. Words, like, oh you know...really bad ones, including the one (shhh) that starts with an "F" (don't tell Mom, OK?)!! More and more of 'em (I know, right?)!! Middle fingers galore! It is so hip and new, page after page! I've never seen anything like this!
