5. In the Medieval era, oaths were believed to physically injure Jesus Christ.

Ergo, you make baby Jesus cry.

What I haven't learned about swearing and cursing ran off your mother's face to mingle on her tattered sheets with the seed of a thousand low-bred leprous sailors.

People who get all pissy about cuss words make me want to slap the shiat out of them.

I inherited my parents' love of swearing, but the only word they didn't like was coont. Now, I'm a great fan of coonts, having one of my own of which I am very fond. My only problem with the word is the same as my problem with the word 'pussy' - it's like it's considered doubly derogatory, as it relates both to horrible, nasty things like genitalia, and to horrible, nasty things like females.

I'll be happy the day the word coont is bandied about as much as cock or dick and no one bats a labia. I'll even do some bandying myself. Personally, I'd like to bring the word 'scrote' into wider use. Why is "you complete scrote" not as popular as "you complete coont"? Put it in a Scottish accent: it's magificent.

fleshtone ugh, fleshtone uttered by Donald Pleasance. Enough to make my skin crawl.

Mom was a nurse on a ship and Dad was an officer.  We had inventive invective in nearly 12 languages.
As kids we'd proclaim someone a putz or complain about something being bolloxed up.

Sadly my daughter is limited to the White Suburban Kid Taxonomy and that's bollocks.

The author sounds like a glass-gazing, super-servicable finical rogue; one-trunk-inheriting slave; one that wouldst be a bawd, in way of good service.

Ugh, the absolutely most farking irritating thing about the internet to me is all the censorship of "profanity".  As if the farking internet was specifically created to be some sort of crazy child's playground or some shiat. Like in the headline for example.  "F*ckin" directly followed by "asshole" is some pretty stupid shiat.  Censorship is a bad enough problem as it is without people picking on "swear" words.

Read that as 'Nice things'.

Imagine my disappoint.
 
2013-05-24 10:48:03 AM  
I genuinely gobsmacked that we, as a group which includes grammar Nazis, have not commented on the missing commas in the headline.

Instead we focus on the f***ing goddamned words.

Bloody hell...

The only place I can bandy around the word cock and dick is the same place I can also use coont, and dick also is considered a double derogatory as it relates both to horrible, nasty tings like genitalia, and ot horrible nasty things like males.

I am not trying to be a dick

They forgot the most important fact. The entire idea of "bad words" is 100% complete bullshiat and we need to quit collectively pretending to be offended by them.

To the people who spouted the bullshiat argument at me in another thread:

9. People don't use cuss words just because they have lazy minds.


So go fark yourselves.

I totally agree and it works in theory but it will never be put into practice because we just don't use the same inflection when using certain words.

I can call you a jerk in public and it will never convey the same sentiment or sound as harsh as calling you a farking asshole even though in the context they have the same meaning

I don't mind swearing at all, but it's so much more pleasurable if the words are used well, and not indiscriminately.  It makes you appreciate them for the wonders that they are.

What do we want?!? A cure for Tourette's!! When do we want it?!? Coont!

" One study, Mohr notes, also found that swearing helps alleviate pain, that if you put your hand in a bucket of cold water, you can keep it in there longer if you say s- rather than shoot."

And here is that study:
