CO's are the best at swearing. Did you know you were a "man-pleaser" or that you had a "cock-holster" ?

hmmm... looks like only three words are blocked here
(hint: they rhyme with duck, punt, and hit)
I find it amazing that the last of them is censored, but nigger isn't.

The oddest example I know of culturally unique taboo words is in Québec, where the typical Anglo-Saxon terms are not considered particularly offensive. The ultimate French Canadian swearwords are the names of various items related to the Roman Catholic Mass. Chalice, host wafer ('estie'), tabernacle — these are the words to make old ladies faint. I kid you not.

You missed the alternative to anus, and female dog as well. And maybe more.

I find it funny when censors bleep one part of compound swear words but not the other part. I'm kinda glad that our auto-censor doesn't (at least most of the time — I think it sometimes does).

I love puns.

Anyway, words is words. See the other thread here, notice how the cops talked to me! Is that acceptable? If I shouldn't do it, they sure shouldn't.

...but being pulled over by a cop is a hell of a lot more informal than having brunch in public.

...not to mention that it is already an antagonistic scenario, unlike most brunches.

But really, who eats brunch anymore?

This discussion brings to mind Pen & Teller's funny curses a la "sweet evil Jesus!" and "Jesus hairy Christ!"

I have nothing more to do in this world, so I can go & pester the inhabitants of the next one with a pure concscience.

if there's one thing i hate...it's kids swearing.
and its usually for one of the following reasons
to act cool
to get attention
to make a comeback when they aren't intelligent enough to think of anything else.

*sigh* the fact that cussing is innappropriate makes it more appealing to the young crowd.
but adults do it too of course...its just much more annoying when its some 12 year old foulmouthing in an overly loud voice

otherwise i don't really mind swearing, i'm too used to it now and it can be pretty useful in exclamation or humour.

Even in todays profanity filled world, my swearing has lost none of its impact.

I swear with a fluidity and poetic grace that has taken years to master. When I get pissed off and say something like "Filthy lecher arsehole stretcher!" people stop and stare. Eyebrows go up.

Entire streams of vile utterances come forth from my mouth with an ease that seems to leave others dumbfounded.

And I am capable of being mind blowingly profane with out using the seven words you can't say on television.

If I could make just one wish, I would want a tasty vlish.

On the flip side of the coin, those same words can be used excessively, and yet be only mildly profane, if at all. Or, at least, all of the ones I can think of right now.

For some reason when people who you normally think wouldn't cuss (such as small children and old ladies) do so (and well) it fills me with laughter although I don't know why.

I remember when they served "Brunch of Lunch" in elementary school. I hated those days.

Weekend brunches are one of the more favored pastimes in the DC Metro area. How can you go wrong with All You Can Eat omelets to order in the same spread with turkey and mashed potatoes? They're especially delightful after a long run, and rest assured, can be quite obscene, depending on the company one keeps.
