Cuss words

I received an email today to tell me I use too many cuss words in my blog.

Seeing as it wasn't Sam Elliott's eloquent moustache passing on this piece of unsolicited advice, I despatched it with a peppering of invective and went back about my day, which involved watching the hours tick away while I thought about packing away my DVDs and collection of deerheads (without doing any of it).

I don't think this is a profane blog but I do reason that a good fuck, every now and then, throws a lovely emphasis on things.

I'll call a hideous bastard a hideous bastard as opposed to a 'not very nice individual,' and if the occasion ever comes up to label someone a 'wankpallet,' consider it bandied.

They're only words, a series of harmless letters arranged in such a way as to spell out 'cockhead,' for instance, or 'John Terry.'

Would that I should asterisk out my saltier musings? Fuck and, indeed, that. I asterisk for no man.

All I have to say to that is.... well.... it's thank you, kind stranger.

My father says he doesn't like to read my blog because *I* swear too much and I tend to write 'phark' after careful deliberation!

And shit. I do like the word 'shit' tossed in (so to speak) every now and then.

I actually think that real bad language involves words like 'awesome,' 'epic fail,' 'LOL' and 'haters' but that's probably just me.

LOL is from the devil. My brother actually says it out loud, not just in texts and online. Even worse are the "lawl" and "lolz" variations.

Radge said...

'z' as a plural?

Fetch my rifle.

ROFL. And rellf, which is my word verification 'word' on this comment.

Wank to that. You don't swear half enough. The nicely creative profanity you peddle is the way forward.

My Dad advised to me curse sparingly otherwise it loses it's impact.
