The Chuck Connors mentioned in the article clearly isn't the baseball player/actor ("The Rifleman") since this was written ten years before he was born.

Long ago (in 2005), I purchased a book titled "Slang and Euphemism: A Dictionary of Oaths, Curses, Insults, Sexual Slang and Metaphor, Racial Slurs, Drug Talk, Homosexual Lingo, and Related Matters", by Richard Spears. I found it quite entertaining. Since it was last revised in 2001, I'm sure a new version would have a lot more entries.

Proofreading problems: "...the world you used for overcoat." and "Thy it and see."

@Virtual: Quite right. Nobody who worked on this article was competent. The hyphenation (in a sub-header, no less!) is a disgrace as well.
