Now, I’m not one to beat a dead horse. So even though Perry’s use of 1980s street slang has garnered national attention, I’m going to stop signing off each post with the obligatory, “or, as Perry would say, AMF.” In fact, according to my trusty online slang dictionary, Perry could have been reaching out to the reporter in friendship. “Mo Fo” can be short for “good friend, buddy.” As in, “That’s my mo fo over there.” Or, “Awww, you Mo Fo. You shouldn’t have!”

No matter. Politicians aren’t perfect. Some of them aren’t even human. They’re cyborgs. But that’s another story. Better told by James Cameron.

Hasta la vista, baby. Adios, you MoFo.

And let's not forget the ever-popular, "What's up MoFo?"
