Monkey? or...Maa Ki?

Information age seems to infer sensationalizing anything and everything.
Case in point now? Harbhajan Singh's words to Symonds.

Monkey or Maa Ki...

ICC forgave Harbhajan because he apparently cursed "Maa Ki..(and god knows whatever followed)" instead of "monkey".

Now I don't know about these Australians or the ICC folks, but isn't a reference to your mother's anatomy much more offensive than calling you a monkey?

We used to call each other monkey and donkey in junior school. When did that attain a racial slur overtone?

Funny how time can complicate things and distort simple vocabulary!!
