Because the word kink has so many different meanings, one or more viewers may ultimately throw a punch at the King of Texas—the most obvious punch would be to refer to me as “the Kink of Texas.” I’m racing to beat them to the punch, to get there first by stressing that the word is king, not kink. The various meanings of kink, as enumerated in thefreedictionary.com include the following:
King has too many meanings to enumerate here, but suffice it to say that none lends itself to derogatory or politically incorrect connotations—oh, there may be some terms that, with a stretch, may conjure up other meanings—king of the fairies, for example. I’m sure there are others, and I’m also sure that viewers will happily point them out.
To which I say, “Throw those punches!” or, as George W. would say, “Bring it on!” I encourage it—with enough submissions we may be able to contribute something to the free dictionary’s definition.
