Since I'm now hanging out with someone who's sensitive to swearing, I got to thinking about the role of swearing and humor or emphasis.  And I had an interesting conversation where I realized that I'm comfortable using "fuck" in almost any context (given the right audience) except when referring to the sex act.  I actually tried saying it out loud and had to sub-vocalize!

However, I was able to watch this Onion parody video of the moon landing and laugh out loud:

  1. Personally, I love swearing. For obvious reasons I never swear at work but I do have a lot of substitutes. As my love of swearing has a lot to do with releasing frustration.

    I love the word "fuck" its versatile. I especially love adding it to other words "G-d damn mother fuck " being a personal favorite, especially after having been stepped on or hit in the head.
