Oh, my. Here we are back in Greater Tuna (the imaginary small Texas town 
that two of our local playwright/actors use to parody Texas foibles). 
Greater Tuna has, among other things, a Smut-Snatchers Society dedicated 
to projects like taking all the "bad" words out of the Bible. In one 
play they had a crisis when somebody pointed out that their very own 
name contained the word "snatch."
