I need to use such discipline in my personal life, though I really think I can’t be limited to just 5 times a day.
As my friends will attest, there’s a running poll on whether or not my children’s first words are going to be "fuck". See, when I say it, it’s not like I even *know* that I’m doing it.. it’s just part of my vernacular.
Yoinked from Monkey Filter:
Fuck you, Sir! Pupils are being allowed to swear at one Northamptonshire secondary school – as long as they limit their use of bad language to five times a lesson.
[Listening to: Salve Virgo Vignum – Mediaeval Baebes – ]
Damn, if I only had five a day, I’d be scheduling them. Waiting with anticipation until I could deliver just the right, “F*** you!” at lunch, or “Shut the (bleep) up!” during Latin…
Each curse would be a well-crafted dig, worthy of Cyrano. Well, if Cyrano were a foul-mouthed bastard. 🙂
Speaking of Latin, I wonder if this counts as 5 per day total? or 5 per day per language.
How about this -> Learn how to swear in different languages
Actually, this link here Fuck Definition and More is much more worthy of being read, and in fact, should probably become a blog subject on its own.. I’ll keep that in mind for the future.
I think it’s a 5 per day total. I know that it would be difficult if not near impossible to limit yourself to 5 times a day.
Although, I think if kids can learn to swear in a different language AND the teacher can understand what is being said, they should get extra credit points.
