Re: I Think It's Funny....


You have to be well versed in the use of obscene language to articulate a foul mouth properly. You have to have the right subject/verb agreement along with the proper use of nouns and adverbs.

You can't just throw those words in there any kind of way. They have to go in the right order.

Ted is absolutely correct.

If you get you "goll darns" and your "goll dangs" mixed up, people are gonna look at you as an interloper.

Except for f-bombs, they can be nouns, verbs, adjectives or adverbs. And that is exactly how some of these guys use them too.

I once heard a foreigner mess up an F-bomb REALLY bad. He said, "I'm gonna shove a big F--- up your nose!"

Foreigners are the worst at it. Its funny listening to the store owner down the road throw in f##k at the wrong time and uses the word buddy a lot.

I think that's part of what makes it funny. We act professional and they do to. Until that awkward moment

When they're letting them slip into conversation 2-3x a day and you keep your talk clean, until the wrench slips and you skin your knuckles and let an angry f'in f'er out...and they look horrified.
