My favorites are "what sort of farkery is this?" And "farkity hell"....

"There's a word you'll have to get used to, "coont". This is a word that many people do not like, but you have to understand the English. In England the word coont is punctuation."

Herr Morgenstern: 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?


I think they will just come up with new ones.  The point of cuss words is for the affect that causes the taboo, when they are first created as cuss words.  New slang words are being made up all the time, but they don't make the big cuss word list unless people start substituting them in for a older cuss word.  Slang terms that we use to keep from using the more taboo words were at one time the taboo words of our ancestor's day.  I recall Paul Harvey mentioning a story of when a college student using the term 'goodbye' at the end of a speech created a huge uproar.  It was at a time that terms like 'good day', 'good morning and 'good night' were the only acceptable terms for parting salutations because they associated the term 'good' only with God and 'bye' had a different meaning to them that they didn't like to see next to the word 'good'.  It later stuck when people chose to change the meaning of 'bye' to 'be with you'.  Making 'goodbye' to mean "God be with you".  If language didn't change, those old books would be a lot easier to read.

Ed Becker: 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.


Of all automation systems I worked with, Scott was by far the best.

Most people in radio cuss like there's no tomorrow.

Farkin' a right they do.

I remember one time when I started a new job in a new office in a new city, I let go a couple of swear words.  I then apologised to the coworker in earshot.  He responded with "If it wasn't for swear words, we'd be farked."

I tend to cuss in Italian anymore. Saves me getting into trouble at work. Cazzo and minchia are personal favorites. Used to go for German, but most people around me know what I am saying when I say Scheisse.

SkunkWorx: Christians don't have curse words.


Reminds me of a story I read somewhere about a Christian speaker named Tony Campolo. He once shocked a convention by telling them, "While you were asleep in bed last night, 30,000 kids died in extreme poverty - and most of you don't even give a shiat." Once the crowd had recovered and collected their jaws from the ground, he added, "What's worse is that you're more upset that I just used the word 'shiat' than that 30,000 kids died last night."

Scott Studios was a great software package, but their tech support was dogshiat. Not as bad as when Google bought them out though.

My "cursing into a hot mic" moment was when I was helping our engineer install a new console. He asked me to test the mic to make sure it was wired correctly...it wasn't. I took a shock to the mouth, and let loose a VERY un-FCC friendly stream of curses.

The Southern Dandy: 10. Swear words are a crutch for inarticulate motherfarkers.


Bullshiat.  The most articulate motherfarkers are the rat bastards that can twist the titty of any cocksucker with a few well placed curses and a shiat eating grin.

The inarticulate motherfarkers are the ones that use only fark.

I'm just going to leave this here, as it is somewhat relevant.

Tim Minchin
The Pope Song

Fark the motherfarker, fark the motherfarker
Fark the motherfarker, he's a farking motherfarker
Fark the motherfarker, fark the motherfarker
Fark the motherfarker he's a total motherfarker
Fark the motherfarker, fark the motherfarker
Fark the motherfarker, fark him, fark the motherfarker
Fark the motherfarker, fark the motherfarking Pope
Fark the motherfarker, fark the motherfarker
Fark the motherfarker, he's a farking motherfarker
Fark the motherfarker, fark the motherfarker
Fark the motherfarker he's a total motherfarker
Fark the motherfarker, fark the motherfarker
Fark the motherfarker, fark him, fark the motherfarker
Fark the motherfarker, fark the motherfarking Pope

Fark the motherfarker, and fark you motherfarker
If you think that motherfarker is sacred
If you cover for another motherfarker who's a kiddy-farker
Fark you, you're no better than the motherfarking rapist

And if you don't like the swearing that this motherfarker forced from me
And reckon it shows moral or intellectual paucity
Then fark you, motherfarker, this is language one employs
When one is farking pissed about motherfarkers farking boys.

FTFA: 'and obscene words, like sexual and racial slurs.'

So when I get called a 'cracker/honky/whitie' it's obscene?

Who knew?

Got to admit I've never seen a more bullshiate comment the one the other day regarding Snoop Dog hating on gays - by his own admission - and having some azzhat here say it's 'racist' to call-out SD on his homophobia.

It's amazing how Leftists can twist their minds into pretzels to justify their beliefs.

I just think it is weird how my brain subconsciously turns off the swearing when I am on the phone at work. Yet at home I use fark constantly . Especially if I am super wired on coffee.
The best cussing I heave heard comes from a friend who makes such exclamations as:
"Sweet buttery balls of Christ"
or
"Holy Mary Mother of Fark"

One thing I've noticed in the podcast arena is since there are no restrictions everyone seems to make it a point to say fark in every sentence, i.e. Chris Hardwick, Marc Maron, Kevin Pollack and Kevin Smith. It gets to the point where they start to sound like 7th graders on their first sleepover. I like swearing as much as, if not more so than the next guy, but you gotta pick your spots.

sexual slurs were more along the lines words like pathicus, a rather graphic term which basically means receiver.

Based on stuff I wrote in the recent FEMEN/Putin thread.

i48.tinypic.com

What the young lady has written on her back is "Иди на хуй, Путин" which Google translates as "go on the dick, Putin". Various valid English translations for "Иди на хуй" are "f*ck you", "suck dick", and "go to hell" and the Russian phrase seems to convey all of these meanings.

For example, one story on FEMEN/ru (NSFW) contains the sentence:

FEMEN призывает Россию прокричать Путину "Иди на хуй, диктатор!" во все 150 миллионов глоток! Если он и этого не услышит, то направить его туда принудительно!

Which they translate on FEMEN/en as

FEMEN calls Russia to scream "Go to hell, dictator" with all 150 millions of voices! If he will not hear that then to send him there against his will.

The "hell" sense of "go on dick" is needed to understand the where of "send him there".

Later the same story pair translates "Putin on the dick!" as "F*ck Putin".

It seems that a primary aspect of how Russians conceive of hell is that it is a place where men are forced to take dick.

I opened up a wet dry vac  and saw the contents. I said "ooh, its filled with JICK!"
I guess it was junk/ick combined.

Jick.

It is now my favorite swear word.

Jick!

Ugly Baby Judges You: Scott Studios was a great software package, but their tech support was dogshiat. Not as bad as when Google bought them out though.


I remember that. They were constantly saying "it's not us, the problem is on your end." Well, duh. Help us fix it.

Did not know Google took over. Then again I've been out of the biz for 4+ years and havn't used Scott for probably 12.

ENCO (used by Cumulus) was the worst POS, as well as some system whose name I can't recall that Clear Channel used before they went to Prophet.

gibbon1: TheJoe03: 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.

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'


Best thing about that word is it changes meaning with the inflection.  And even Grandma knows what it means.
