I came across an #comments" target="_blank">article today that made me stop and ponder….

Personally, I think swearing is sometimes necessary. There are certain events, circumstances, or moments in which the only way to adequately convey the full intensity of said event, circumstance or moment is with the use of a “naughty” word. These words are not a common part of accepted vocabulary thereby delivering much more of a whollup.

Bam, oof, pop, pow!

Some think that using naughty words somehow is a  degradation of the language or evidence of a limited vocabulary/education — I have never considered that a fair assessment of swearing, mostly because of my previously mentioned opinions ha! AND, most definitely, there are some folks that have made an art out of swearing… that string of perfectly mixed expletives used in just the right combination… I have been known to have very strong  feelings of envy. I’ve even tried to emulate a few folks who have this artistic ability but have never quite measured up. (I do much better with run-on sentences however)

After thinking about all of this, I must admit, I swear too much. I know I do. But sometimes I really think that things are somehow funnier or more sarcastic with a little %$*# thrown in. I can’t even begin to tell you how many times in my adult life that I’ve vowed to not swear. Worthless effort. I try to substitute different words for swear words – or even alter the swear word so that everyone knows what it was meant to be….

My point is that sometimes DANG just doesn’t do the job that DAMN does…. oh well

Being an adult is like looking both ways before you cross the street and then getting hit by an airplane.

  1. OMG, My DAD!!! I swear he is a perfect example of a highly educated individual who can use the “F-bomb” as an adjective, verb, noun, adverb, AND interjection!!! I swear it on my new granddaughter’s life!!! He is absolutely HILARIOUS when he MAD and gets going!!! Holy Cow, watch the %$#@ out!!! LMAO!!! I too, must admit, being a totally honest person, when angered I curse like a sailor and swear like a soldier… I apologize to our men and women of the Armed forces for using that analogy… I don’t mean to offend anyone… Smiles to all 🙂 Jen

  2. Oh I so agree. Sometimes it is absolutely essential. And a good swear word has a satisfying weight as it rolls off the tongue.
    And sadly, i also swear too much. And too often.

  3. One of the best cuss/rants ever. Chevy Chase my friends !!!

    And I wanna look him straight in the eye, and 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-assed, bug-eyed, stiff-legged, spotty-lipped, worm headed, sack of monkey shit he is! Hallelujah! Holy shit! Where’s the Tylenol?

    Every time I see that movie I LMAO

  4. Too, too ,funny And I wholeheartedly agree!! I once gave a lunchtime oration to my fellow teachers (well out of hearing range of any student or administrator!) on the ways the F word could be used — as a noun,verb, adjective, adverb, and certainly an interjection. We were all laughing that day!

    • hilarious Muff! i don’t know how teachers do it… i really don’t… or bus drivers for that matter…. i know that i would be in so much trouble, all the time… most likely driving my administrator crazy… i just know i would be that teacher that says things like “shut the hell up!” or “sit your little ass back down in that damn chair” lol
