“These days you can’t even say ‘black paint’ any more” (NSFW joke)

A political correctness joke (probably NSFW) states that you cannot say “black paint.” That is usually an adjective and a noun, but the joke has it as a noun and a verb.
   
“Apparently i can’t say ‘Black paint!’  anymore. I have to be PC and say ‘Please paint that wall, Leroy’” was posted on Twitter by sickipediabot on December 22, 2010. The joke originated on the Sickipedia website.

Black paint is racist. The correct terminology is, “Would you please paint the wall, Shaun?”
