I seriously JUST got the joke. XD
My wife got a muffin with dinner tonight. She asked me for it when we got home, and I gave it to her, and in doing so I reflected on its use as a swear word.
And realized exactly why it worked so well.
Good grief, that should not have taken me so long. XD Does it say something about my usual choice of verbiage that the thought never crossed my mind before?
