word lust: salty

meaning earthy, crude. i like it better than saying “crude” or “vulgar”.

A lean 6 feet 2 inches and 180 pounds, Baugh grew up in two Texas towns —Temple and Sweetwater — but the Redskins promoted him at first as a rough-hewn rustic, insisting he wear a Stetson and cowboy boots when he met the news media. Baugh obliged, and he was given to chomping on cigars, chewing tobacco and using salty language.
