Seems it's already widely used, even has its own page on Wikepedia

Alternative forms

you can find nig#er in the dictionary too.

that term is exclusively used by haters.

OK OK OK, You're the one - happy now?
I can't stand hearing ducks whine.

Let me explain why England sent their "convicts" to Australia.

I blame that on George Washington.

After the War of independence and Cornwallis and his "Redcoats" and Hessians were send scurrying back to the old country, England had nowhere to send their "excess population", read impoverished people.

So, the thoroughly disrespectable and dishonest English police rounded up all those hard-working, honest, Irish petty thieves, marched them to Liverpool and shipped them off to Australia.

Prior to Independence, England used to get rid of them by "encouraging" them to migrate to America ( the continent ).

And if you are keen,  I have stories about Australian convicts that would turn you off sex for a month! And don't believe Emu's sanitized version of the story, which would liikely be forthcoming.
Let the dice fly high
