WTF? I don't know whether to be upset because it's so high or so low. I'm trying to figure out which 43% of my posts don't contain cussing. I guess it's okay if you say, "I penetrated him with my throbbing man-cucumber" as long as you don't say "fuck." I wonder whether "buttsex" counts. In any case, apparently my swearing level is at 613% of normal, so I guess I've accomplished something.
I actually spend a lot of time (well, compared to how much time everyone else spends) worrying about the lost efficacy of cursing in contemporary society. There was a time when you really could almost never say "fuck," but nowadays, in lots of places, you can say "motherfucker," and no one even winces. Swearing has lost its impact.
Of course, I still work with someone who blushes at most swearing. She didn't believe us when we told her that "clusterfuck" is a common term, so now we use it around her as often as possible. And, truly, in any office setting, the opportunities to say "clusterfuck" are almost endless.
We should probably all tone down the swearing a little so that there'd be something left to say in truly extreme situations. (I suppose it's possible that the increase in swearing is due to an increase in truly extreme situations, but I doubt that our increasingly chaotic lives are significant factors.)
I got the cuss-o-meter from Mr. Wordo over at Sticky Crows. At least that's what I call him. He goes by "tornwordo," and most of his readers call him "torn," so I assume that's his given name. Using the proper form of address with people on the Internet is a thorny matter, and I just try to do the best I can.
I'm totally underwater at work right now. It's pretty bad. Tonight, I'm supposed to be hosting a thirty-two-year-old cute guy who wants to call me Daddy while I penetrate him with my throbbing man-cucumber, but I'm so backed up at work that I'd be relieved if he canceled.
I realize it's not much of a post, but here's a hot naked guy for your trouble.
