I was interested in reading where Grawlix derived.  I was not interested in watching a video about it. I wish online media would understand that not everything needs to be in a video.

the origin of "Grawlixes" ... perhaps already well-known to Beetle Bailey fans ... but still interesting.

It doesn't bother me so much that some obscenities get bleeped with a 1kHz sinusoidal tone, it's the lack of a proper fade-in, fade-out on that tone and the associated audible "pops" that prompt my fits of barely-controllable rage. Your mileage may vary.

I used to curse a lot but that was before I took an arrow to the grawlix.

A Grawlix sounds like a Dr. Seuss character.

In case you have no idea,
"Gravlax or gravlaks is a Nordic dish consisting of raw salmon, cured in salt, sugar, and dill."

From the people who brought you lutefisk!

FTFA: The first grawlix appeared as early as November 1, 1901. (You can find it here behind a paywall at Newspapers.com, or below.)

Umm... I'll just look at it below, thanks.

Vox Media and all of its sites are a cancer.

Nilay Patel is a sleazy douchebag.
