reading this post got me thinking about profanity. Instead of writing about the negatives of profanity, here are some examples of swearing that works.

remember kids swearing isn’t cool


if anyone has seen the first season of The Wire, you know what clip I’m about to show. A great use of one word being used as shorthand, it adds to the character’s voice and it tells us more about their friendship and partnership than having them right out and saying it.

2) The Big Lebowski

it offers a plethora of great examples but here is one:

“Saturday, Donny, is Shabbos, the Jewish day of rest. That means that I don’t work, I don’t drive a car, I don’t fucking ride in a car, I don’t handle money, I don’t turn on the oven, and I sure as shit *don’t fucking roll*!”

3) George Carlin’s Seven Dirty Words

just listen:

“alright you fuckers, I’m gonna tinkle now!”

i’m actually bored now so whatever….add more examples in the comments!
