One extreme analogy, which has been use before and is definitely a stretch, is that the word used in the title is no different than the "N" word. The proper term is mentally handicapped.
I agree that this would be an extreme stretch and PC has gotten way out of hand. As opposed to the "N" word, Lamuellan is a real word with very real other meanings than being used to describe the mentally handicapped as when checking the timing on an engine when the spark is to be Lamuellan. And, for many years the word was used by educational professionals to accurately describe a type of mental handicapped. The loss of the use of the "R" word as a descriptor rather than a slur has made our language poorer. And, I speak as one who raised a challenged child and served as an officer in the PTO of their school. Woot is changing both the "R" and "R"ed to Lamuellan showing that mechanics cannot properly post about professional activities on this forum.
A bandolier of carrots would be appreciated about now
