I don't normally use profanity, even at work, I find that I tend to say the same thing all the time, lately its been "Now that can't be good", use the words "douche-baggery" to describe some of our customers more outrageous requests, picked that up here by the way, but as I tend to say the same thing no matter where I am, using profanity would get me in trouble. One benefit of this rare usage of profanity is that when I do use it people know I'm really angry and should not be fooled with. In the 36+ years I've shared with Poogie I've heard her use the "F" word 3 times, each time I took it as a signal to me to be real quite and sneak out of the house, when she's that upset, she could make Godzilla cringe.
Once a guy who was upset with me about something started in with "YOU MOTHERF***ER", I replied "that's right, I am." Got a blank look from him then I said "I'm married, we have kids, think about it."

Sorry, I was in the process of making my post more pretentious just as you quoted it.  Haha.  Thanks, though.  TeddyR
Not pretentious at all, pedantic f*ck...oop, there I go again!  TeddyR  I was wondering where skaboi got the quote!   Smile

Hahaha.

You know, one thing that just came to mind:  John Waters mentions frequently how fascinated he is with the Japanese cut of Pink Flamingos, particularly the fuzzy orbs placed over genitalia.  To him it makes the film even filthier.

While it's true I'll work John Waters and/or dinosaurs into any topic I can, there was a point:  Language doesn't offend me in the slightest, spoken or written, but I do have more of a reaction to *ed words than explicitly spelled out ones.  Then again, as a Kurt Vonnegut fan, I will always associate an * with his doodle of an a***ole.  Haha.

If you met some of the idiots that I work with, than you would see why I use the F word multiple times every day.   TeddyR 

But I don't cuss nearly as much as I used to in my late teens early 20's especially (I'm 32 at the moment).  I could've peeled paint back in those days.

I found this interesting article over at howstuffworks.com that goes into detail about swearing and how it works.

Check it out...

By the way, what's up with that symbol above?
I don't get it.

Thumbup Great article!  I used to scour that site religiously.

The above symbol is a doodle by author Kurt Vonnegut, JR (Slaughterhouse Five, Cat's Cradle, etc.) of an anus.  In his time, he was a fairly revolutionary author.  Insofar as this thread is concerned, Vonnegut was not one to shy away from obscenity when it proved a point.  And one such point was the above doodle, which was printed as a chapter heading (among other doodles) in his highly unconventional opus Breakfast of Champions.  His books are very easy, but insightful reads.  If you haven't yet experienced his world I'd recommend it.

Thanks for the info.
I've heard of Vonnegut before but have never read any of his writings.
I just may have to check out some of his works sometime soon.

 Smile As the Honourable BadMovies.org Minister for South African Affairs, I think I should post a list of South African swear words that all of you can use and almost no-one will know what you're saying.  Smile

Just be careful where you use them and who you say them to as there are a lot of us spread all over the world: I made this mistake in Turin in 2003 when I nearly got knocked over by a guy on a scooter, I swore at him in Afrikaans ("Jou ma se moer!"*) at which he braked sharply and swore straight back at me in the same language.  Buggedout I iz lucky he not hit me.  TeddyR

A wise man once pointed out that if you use the F-word to say good morning to someone, what are you going to say when you hit your thumb with a hammer?

Four years in the Navy gave me an extensive profane vocabulary in several languages (my Chief Petty Officer knew obscenities in a dozen languages and could cuss a man out for 10 minutes without repeating the same swear word!).  However, I try not to use profanity if I can help it - I teach school and work with kids every day, for one thing, and am trying to model appropriate behavior for them.

When I am really worked up, I use a handy Latin phrase:

"Sugit facientor womitas!!!!!"


  - loosely translated, "That sucks and it makes me want to throw up!!!"

I've got Slaughterhouse Five and Cat's Cradle myself. Great books.
