NSFM: A Definition

Regular readers of this blog may have noticed that I occasionally use the acronym NSFM when I'm linking to another site.  I've said that it means Not Safe For Mom, but I thought a fuller explanation might be helpful.

I try to keep things PG-rated around here.  That means being a bit thoughtful about my subject matter and keeping the four letter words to a minimum.  I'm not saying you won't find any cussing -- that would not be true -- but I try to keep it in check.  For one thing, my mom reads this blog; for another, it's easy make something funny by dropping F-bombs into it.  It's harder to be funny while keeping it relatively clean and I'm a girl who enjoys a challenge.

NSFM means that what I am linking to is not graphic, pornographic, or violent, but it's not... well, something you'd share with mom around the dinner table.  The language might be rough, or the subject matter might be a bit crude, and it's possibly NSFW -- for example, a link to a theater production with men acting idiotic while wearing hats shaped like male genitalia.  (Which made sense in the context of the original post, honest.)
