Unnecessary swearing.
And I do mean unnecessary.

If a football slams into your testicles at pace, you are quite justified to exclaim "Oooh, fucking hell, that hurts". If your boss sacks you for something you didn't do, no-one is is going to complain if you refer to him as a "Bastard","Arsehole" or even as a "Fucker". If some random thug on the street gives you a kicking and robs you of your money, you're damn right, the guys a cunt.

What I don't approve of is the use of the most explicit language for the most mundane incidents. If someone (ie: a celebrity, journalist, an aquaintance or a stranger on the street) acts in a way that irritates you, or has different beliefs to you, it doesn't make them "a massive, total, cunt". That is a complete over reaction, it doen't make you look big or clever, or even cool and edgy. It just makes you look like either an uneduacted oik who can't think of an intelligent way to express yourself without swearing, or a drama queen who blows off at the slightest little thing.

"Cunt" used to be a great word, but its overuse has now diluted it to such an extent that it doesn't really shock anymore. Newer words don't have the same pure, raw, one-syllable punch that cunt once had, so think before you swear, think of how it makes you look.

I discovered an anomaly at work the other day, and ejaculated "What the bloody fuck?!", and was commended for good swearing.

I'm going to click
for using ejaculate in that context when not reading out loud from a Sherlock Holmes story.

takes swearing to a whole new level. My favourites are when one takes a one-syllable swear and then adds a two-syllable animal on the end.


though fucksocks is still the best

I am definitely going to start using 'fuckweasel'
'He's a bit of a fuckweasel' needs to be more widely used..

Shit off.

calling someone a massive total cunt for something like that is enjoyable hyperbole
it amuses me to massively overreact to things.
