Bad Word

Annie was very angry with Emma, since Emma wasn't wanting to play with her.  From the top of the stairs I heard, "Emma, you are a BAD WORD."

Notice I didn't use parentheses.  Instead of using a bad word, she actually said the words, "bad word."

I found this quite clever.  Whatever Emma's definition of a bad word is, whether "stupid" or something much worse, that's what she called Emma.
