Date: Fri, 4 Nov 1994 09:01:51 EST From: Wayne Glowka Subject: NADS Is Now Obscene Now that "nads" is a commonly heard reduction of "gonads," I kind of chuckle every time I run across our beloved newsletter (_Newsletter of the American Dialect Society_) with its bold-faced acronym _NADS_ staring up at me out of the chaos of my desk. I need a day off.
