Rather than saying "guitar," we should say "ax."  And rather than saying "guitars," we should say "axen."

You can stick an ax up Gene Simmons's overly gay posterior; "axe" as in the idiomatic for guitar dates back to at least the 50's, but I think earlier, although I can't quickly find a good etymological reference
