Let us discuss discuss. Then we can have a discussion about the discussion of discuss. Especially the rare usage I came across when reading the original whodunit, Half-Mast Murder. It can also mean to consume food or drink enthusiastically. Perhaps influenced by degust? Most likely not related to disgust.

If you rescind a swear word, are you dis-cussing? Or would discussing be talking smack and swearing at the same time? :?
