    Default smurfing swearing

    A high school is withholding the valedictorian's diploma for using the word "hell" in her graduation speech.

    The principal is demanding she write an apology letter in order to receive her diploma. She is apparently refusing, but I think she should have written "I apologize for not telling you to smurf off sooner, dickwad."

    This reminded me of a story a couple of months ago, where a town tried to outlaw public profanity. I'm not entirely sure which one is more dumb. Probably the high school one.

    Do you curse a lot? Do you refrain from cursing under certain circumstances? Are you a freak like Bleys and have nightmares about swearing in front of the Queen?

    To me, the 'bad words' aren't really bad at all and I have no problem using them whenever I feel like it. I think it is kind of silly to label certain words bad on a semi-arbitrary basis. Being able to say ass and bitch on television (and on this forum), but not tit or smurf just seems really silly to me.

    My girlfriend's grandparents and extended family (on her mother's side) are really religious and therefore frown on anything that differs from their own collective beliefs. I try not to curse around them because it is just more trouble than it is worth. There was an instance where I said "smurf" around one of her aunts during a game we were playing. She hasn't talked to me since. I find it amusing.

    A lot of my dreams focus around Bleys saying smurf in front of or around a variety of important people. Last night he said smurf near Mao Zedong.

    I swear a lot. I swear about everything. I could be in a fantastic mood but I would still say, "We're out of smurfing bread." or "We need more smurfing milk." or even "Where the smurf is the remote?" When watching a show where some dramatic thing has happened I don't have to be surprised or started to say, "Oh trout." I don't say smurf in front of my grand mothers, but I say it in front of children sometimes because they're below my eye level and I don't notice them. A funny thing is when I'm angry I don't swear.

    Words are words. I hardly see how the word Hell can be offensive. I mean even God fearing Christians should know the word and accept it because it's like the bad place and trout I dunno. Look seriously this is just a crock of trout and people should loosen up a little. I know there are extremes and just the other night this one lady was swearing like I don't even smurfing know and I was offended but I just sat there and minded my own business.

    I swear a lot, especially when I'm driving. Wesley can attest to this.

    I used to have to be concerned about holding my tongue in front of my mother, but now she's pretty okay with everything I say except smurf.

    I live in New England. I curse like a sailor. There's a reason every movie that takes place in Boston has smurf in it 497039709709749 times.

    I curse, but it's not a common thing for me. I only do so when I feel it's appropriate, like when I want to make a point to stand out. And for the record, I think it's goddamn ridiculous if you have to smurfing swear all the goddamn smurfing time, troutheads. It just makes you sound pretty dumb, imo.

    So in conclusion: Swearing to make a point is good. Swearing just for the hell of it is bad.

    I swear fairly causally, but I am not one those ignorant people that thinks doing it all the time, especially in public, makes me hardcore.

    I don't see "hell" as all that offensive.

    I curse more on the forum than I do in real life. Part of that is because of the funny swear filters. It makes everything with a swear sound comical.

    I don't really have a problem with a dropped swear every now and then. But if you're one of those people who is saying a swear every other sentence for no reason (and when you're not ranting or angry) then I don't care for it. To me, it just sounds really unintelligent. If that's the only way you have of expressing yourself, I'm not sure I want to have a conversation with you. Go read a dictionary.

    I swear, a lot. To the point where I try to tone it down.

    If I know children are around, I don't. I have a good filter then. If I didn't, I most certainly wouldn't have a job.
