FTFA: "The Romans didn't divide people up [by being heterosexual and homosexual]," she says. "They divided people into active and passive. So what was important was to be the active partner."

Damn my fat fingers! Anyways, I found it interesting that the romans had a word specifically for mouth rape.

Stay classy, Romans.

Those are not two kinds of swear words. Those are swear words and other words someone doesn't want you to say.

DNRTFA but I just wanted to say that I've always found the phrase "f*ck me running" to be amusing.

"Fark me sideways with a large Mexican cactus" is one of my favorites.

Fark is a most versatile word.  Fark the fark off, you farking fark. Can't do that with any other word.

It almost seems that shiat has been downgraded to "ass" and "damn" level. coont is still the king of cuss words (in the US), which I never really understood. It's one of the best cuss words ever.

Farkers might also enjoy the book Filthy English: The How, Why, and When of Everyday Swearing,
by Peter Silverton.  Also, if you haven't seen it already, Bon Cop / Bad Cop has a great scene that
discusses the possible uses of "tabernac".

Count me as another fan of "flying fark at a rolling donut".

That's the problem with them. They're too versatile. It's easy to let them get out of control to the point where you're unconsciously saying them constantly, badly defining things, and making extremely simplistic statements. I'm trying to limit my use of them and try to express my feelings a bit better. When the only word you can use to explain yourself with is "fark" then you start to become one.

Comparative analysis will show coont is the strongest cuss word in English. If you combine coont with another swear word like farking coont, you'll notice that the result is less than coont and more than fark.

I never use coont.  If someone is enough of a coont to be called a coont, they don't deserve the honor.  Nope they get the southern term, 'special'

Stephen Fry agrees:

I have to disagree with their suggestion that typically swear words only go up to 3% - I know several people that interject virtually every word with a swear "for emphasis" (of course at that level it loses all meaning, and just means they talk about half as fast as anyone else once you filter out the swear word "filler")

It makes me wonder what would happen if we just dropped all taboo surrounding these words and just let everyone swear whenever or wherever they wanted. Would people come up with new ones? Would they be as effective? Would swearing no longer help alleviate pain?

shiat, piss, fark, coont, cocksucker, motherfarker, tits.

As a broadcaster, I'm very aware of most of these words in regards to the FCC.  I'm also very aware of our new-fangled consoles that are electronically controlled that can still have the mics hot even if they're off and the faders are down but may still be open in the event of a brownout or other electrical fart.  I just assume the mics are hot whenever I'm in a studio with one, especially when voice tracking.  A friend and former coworker years ago thought he recorded over a flub that contained the words "you've got to be farking shiatting me."  Nope, Scott Studios kept the original VT and it aired.  He never got in trouble for it and eventually became a cop.

Most people in radio cuss like there's no tomorrow.  Years ago the person who is now my GM was the sales manager was showing a sales recruit through the station and I heard her say "if you're offended by the word "fark" this is not the place for you to work."

But with the FCC having the stick up its ass as it does in regards to indecency/obscenity and our wacky new technology, I still get a kick out of my PD cussing up a storm in the air studio.  Knowing every so often there's talent that gets fired for swearing when they think they're off the air after the "no cussing in the studio" rule has been beaten into our heads.

I also cuss, even using f-bombs as an expression of frustration, but I have the sense to be careful of how others around me feel about hearing certain words.

FTFA: "The Romans didn't divide people up [by being heterosexual and homosexual]," she says. "They divided people into active and passive. So what was important was to be the active partner." Hence, sexual slurs were more along the lines words like pathicus, a rather graphic term which basically means receiver.

In other words: "biatch."

May I make a suggestion for a change to the Fark filter? Any time someone types out "biatch," it comes out as "pathicus" instead. That would be fun.

In the Middle Ages, Mohr says, certain vain oaths were believed to actually tear apart the ascended body of Christ, as he sat next to his Father in heaven.

That's what I love about fark. I come here cause I have the freedom to say whatever motherfarking thing is on my mind, and shiat. No farking coont attractive and successful African-American is going to stop me from expressing myself here. That would be a complete biatch move, and I salute fark for not censoring the real me.

A few years ago, after my birthfamily had found me, I was in NYC meeting some aunts, uncles and cousins for the first time. We were in an Irish pub in Yonkers and I sat down next to an aunt who didn't realize I was there and she was cussing a blue streak. She turned around, saw me, blushed and started apologizing. I told her I feel better when I hear someone swear, that way I know it's okay for me to let a few go. She patted me on the knee and said 'Yes, that's very sweet. Now f#@k off.'  Good times.
