 #!CommitTicketReference repository="" revision="52789"
 Formatting: Make terms in `wpautop()` and `shortcode_unautop()` more
 welcoming and inclusive.

 The developer facing humor in these functions were from a different era of
 WordPress. Tolerance for in-jokes and other developer facing humor has
 decreased over the years. Terms like "pee" and "tinkle" may make some
 folks chuckle while for others it makes them uncomfortable.

 Terminology of the past is being (or has been) re-evaluated to transform
 words into a language that are inclusive and welcome for all. This commit
 is part of that effort as it replaces.

 Follow-up [13], [9255].
