    Let's not teach more people to talk like this.

    When we worry about software going off the rails and harming humanity, throwing discriminatory slurs around isn't exactly the first thing that jumps to mind.

    Leave off the last "s" for smart?

    The Luna smart mattress cover will make your dumb old caveman mattress much smarter!
