Seriously, Watson is like a dude with Aspergers. It knows all kinds of stuff and has no filters. So the engineers gave it filters.

Engineers, you failed. If it's supposed to be like a human, give it the mechanism to develop a filter and then take time to impress it properly to use the filter. Or is having a super brainiac child too much work for you?!

[citation][nom]serendipiti[/nom]Surely there must be some sort of gag about this... perhaps Monty Python ?[/citation]I somehow doubt Monty Python is going to stage a reunion solely to poke fun at Watson learning some dirty words.

Can see it now, like in the first Terminator, the machine uses that most cuss filled responses...lol. At least it would have given Watson more of a personality :)

"The supercomputer, unable to distinguish polite from impolite conversation, began to use profanity in conversation."

Well Watson's case is mostly black ... All hail Watson, the newest member of N.W.A. :)
