I'll believe it when I'm allowed to talk about an African American who  isn't attractive or successful.

Well, flip de f*ckity f*ckity flim flam sh*tboozle quimgobbler.

Not a dying art, but an evolved art. Profanity are now all-purpose words that can be used to express strong f*cking emotion. It spices up sh*tty language and keeps things f*cking interesting. So say f*ck all you want, f*ckmongers!

/would've kept the words without the *, but the replacement filter words are not as strong or as funny.

You know what I wish was a dying art? F*cking roller derby and this cr*ppy sponsored link continuing to try to tell me 13 things I don't f*cking know about it. Other than it being a Hipster revived sport that has sexually attractive 20 - 30 something girls with a b*tchy self-absorbed attitude structure skating around a circular rink (which brings feminism back a couple of years), trying to pass by one another, there's nothing more I need to know about that sh*tty sport!

Some coont pisses about with the filter and stops me saying this shiat in a Fark thread. Personally I think its a load of farking bollocks.

Nobody cusses like a sailor anymore.  It's just fark fark fark fark fark.  Nothing with any approaching skill with language.

I'd be gobsmacked by a rancid penis if some cocksnorfler ever overcame their willful vulgar somnobulation to vomit a stream of profanities that would make a Marine DI pop a boner in envy.

Now, I had heard that word at least ten times a day from my old man. He worked in profanity the way other artists might work in oils or clay. It was his true medium; a master.

TFA is whack.

Anybody who watches VEEP knows that profanity isn't a dying art. Those writers work in profanity the way other artists might work in oils or clay.

It's true. Much in the way that Mr. Parker was able to weave a tapestry of obscenities, Katt Williams is incapable.

I should have also read the thread, instead of just TFA.

...and I want to look him straight in the eye and I want to tell him what a cheap, lying, no-good, rotten, four-flushing, low-life, snake-licking, dirt-eating, inbred, overstuffed, ignorant, blood-sucking, dog-kissing, brainless, dickless, hopeless, heartless, fat-ass, bug-eyed, stiff-legged, spotty-lipped, worm-headed sack of monkey sh*t he is! Hallelujah!

I believe I am the only sailor in the 250 years of noble US Navy to have been formally reprimanded for swearing like a sailor.

Idk -- i have a coworker who was talking about the boss with me on the phone the other day... she used the phrase "He can lick my swollen left hemorrhoid till it pops in his goddamn farking face"...

Needless to say i was impressed.

Fun fact -- Canadians swear more than any other nationality.

See, f*ck is overplayed. Also, people don't appreciate the power of an adjective. Metaphor also works. For example, if you want someone to be quiet, you could go with "shut the f*ck up", but it's played. It's tired. It doesn't make an impact.

"Shut your filthy cockholster and pay attention, dammit", though... Those are the words of someone who truly insists that you need to be quiet.

A dying fart it's not.

/no sir!
 
2013-07-03 09:51:59 AM
That's why you've got to get creative with it. Use one "profane" word with one that isn't ("farkgoblin", "douchehammer") - or two that shouldn't go together, but that's often dicier ("shiatfarker" isn't as funny).

I like to string random invective along: *toestub* "mothershiatting anus-gobbling piece-of-fark...!"

This.  VEEP does for swearing what Arrested Development did for innuendo.

Indeed!  As a former Boatswain I proudly got stood up for being late back on board, but never managed to achieve the lofty heights of swearing enough to earn any paperwork purely for my vocabulary.  Bravo Zulu, sir.
