Recently in a Facebook post we asked you for your favourite swear words. The post attracted nearly 2,000 comments and as usual you didn't disappoint. I can't wait to share some of your favourite weird ones but to summarise it probably won't surprise you to see the top 3:
1) Fuck has to be the best and most versatile swear word in existence.
2) Cunt is becoming a lot more acceptable to use now as a curse word. In my mum's generation, it was considered the most vulgar of swear words. I used to feel the same but somehow over the past 8 years it has become much more liberating to use as sometimes the word fuck just doesn't cut it. I think this quote from Abz sums it up
"Cunt is my most loved swear word because of how offended some people are by it. All the others just don't have the same level of impact."
Cunt has been in the English language for centuries, there is a street in Oxford that is now called Magpie Lane, but it used to be called Gropecunt Lane, a name that reflected the fact that sex workers had congregated there centuries earlier. This place name is the earliest recorded use of the word “cunt” in English, going back to at least 1230 A.D.
Cunt is still a no go word for a lot of people though.
I upset one customer because she ordered a bib that said “That’s not a plane that’s a spoon dickhead” to be sent to her son on the birth of her new and first grandson. I accidentally sent them the messy little cunt one (due to a mix up at the warehouse). The daughter in law opened it in front of her own mum and neither of them were impressed with the other Grandma’s purchase! I Oops.
I use the word shit so often that sometimes I forget it is a swear word? Is it? According to my kids (aged 11 and 12) it is a swear word! "MUM ... you used the "s"word". Bless them.... I use the word shit ALL THE TIME.
As these are the top 3 commonly used swear words we are using them in a new product we have coming in time for fathers day! (TOP SECRET but you won't be disappointed!)
Now on to the more interesting swear words. Here is a list of your favourites.
