    Not necessarily. I didn't specify which dung would be associated with what party. They're both dung to me, and they smell just as badly.

    Nope, your logic is flawed...this is how I arrived at my idiot-savant theory...

    One of the arguments in the past was that left-handedness was caused by brain damage, since discounted I think. But, gawd can you imagine how smart I was before I suffered the damage. Wow!

    Just kidding, but not of necessity about the logic. It applies to many aspects of socio-cultural reality.

    Jimi Hendrix was left-handed. I'd hardly call him brain-damaged, even though he was quite often high.

    Nothing new here. In the Defense Dept budgets there were many, many words that were ‘changed’ to sell line items, i.e. don’t use the original word, so ‘we’ invented new ones.

    One that comes to mind, Staballoy for Depleted Uranium. Uranium was an unsellable word to Congress.

    I didn't want to blow up the New Year's thread with my negativity, but I stumbled on this looking for my local colloquialisms.

    This is how they speak in my hometown:

    Yup, born in Augsburg. Dad was American soldier, Scottish surname, mum was German War-bride.

    Euro-trash.

    I've fixed the link. The problem is with those abridged youtu.be links. They won't work for embedding a video here. One must use the full link as it appears in the address bar of one's browser, as you said.
