Warning – this post contains language that is offensive to others.

My mother used to say things like, “I wouldn’t wear that hat to a dog fight.” I remember her gossiping about a neighbour saying, “She wouldn’t say shit, if she had a mouthful.”

My topic today is potty mouth.

I have one. I like to cuss. I do it all the time. I love to see a cuss word in print, and I take great delight in hearing others cuss. I don’t know why. I don’t remember a time I didn’t have a foul mouth, and well, there you have it.

I think fuck is my favourite word, right next to shit, and dammit.

I read all the time about how only the uneducated, simpleminded, and super boring people cuss. That we show our limited vocabulary and lack of interest when we use profanity.

I think about this a lot, and wonder if it is true.

    Love it! And no, it’s not true. Sometimes the best words to use are the most honest (or profane) ones we have in our collection.

    If this ever shows up on a contest, I’ll know the correct answer!

    When my son was young I had a swear jar. It didn’t take long to realize that we would be able to travel around the world ad infinitum with the amount of money I was forced to pay.
    …limited vocabulary…fuck the bozos!
