pesachim 3

adding letters to refine the language
because it certain things are unmentionable.
but is it better to be refined rather than to the point?

(and ladies should always travel side-saddle unless she is afraid)

(following the debate about Or, Light, meaning Night, the talmud asks a simple question. well why didn't it just say "Night". and answers with a lengthy discussion about the virtues of refined speech, and not saying bad news)
