Police in South Carolina arrested a mom last weekend after she allegedly directed the word “fuck” at her children in a Kroger grocery store. Danielle Wolf, who just moved her family to the city of North Augusta three weeks ago, grew frustrated with her husband for squishing the bread in her shopping cart, and displayed her annoyance with a few four-letter words. A fellow shopper approached Wolf and insisted that she had said “fuck” in front of her children. Wolf had said the word to her husband, not her kids, though I’m not sure why a total stranger felt entitled to this clarification. “She’s like, ‘you said the f-word’, and I’m like, ‘when did I say this to my kids?’” Wolf told local news station WJBF. “She’s like, ‘you told them that they were smashing the bread’, and I said ‘no’ I said that to my husband, that he was smashing the bread by throwing the frozen pizzas on top of it.’”

One thing lead to another, and though the irritated shopper hadn’t intended for Wolf to be arrested, she ended up leaving the store in handcuffs. Keep reading »

What’s The Most Inappropriate Time You’ve Dropped The F-Bomb?

Watching Melissa Leo drop the f-bomb during her Oscar acceptance speech made me feel a little bit better about my own f-bomb mishap. Sometimes it just happens at the most inappropriate moments. For me, it was back in my days as a high school teacher. It was 8th grade visitors night and parents and potential students were coming through my classroom to watch my students rehearse for an upcoming school play. One of my actresses fell on the stage and her skirt flipped up so all of our visitors saw her underwear. That’s when I started to laugh uncontrollably. I know it’s wrong, but I just couldn’t stop. I laughed so hard that I got a gushing nosebleed. Don’t think this story can get any worse? You’re wrong. Keep reading »

Australian Pottymouths Fined Up To $300 For Public Cussing

Civil liberties nightmare or a f**king great idea? Police in Queensland, Australia, now have the authority to fine citizens $100 to $300 for committing the “public nuisance” of cussing in public. Queensland’s head of state, Anna Bligh, said to expect a 20 percent rise in public nuisance complaints, based on trial programs in South Brisbane and Townsville. Why are Aussies so concerned about naughty language? They’re not. Apparently, swear words are just a moneymaker. Bligh said that targeting public pottymouths (along with those who pee in public and other acts of disorderly conduct) could generate the government some major bucks. Watch your mouths, Aussies!

Yo, Dude! The Origins of Common Slang Words

Slang is defined as an informal nonstandard vocabulary composed typically of coinages, arbitrarily changed words, and extravagant, forced, or facetious figures of speech, according to Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary.

In other words, slang can be “a dope spin on a sick word that deserves props for being mad fly, yo.” Keep reading »

Cursing Is Good For You

Holy s**t! A U.K. study found that swearing increases our pain tolerance. Participants in the study were asked to keep their hands in freezing cold water for as long as they could while repeating certain words. Peeps were able to withstand the cold an average of 40 seconds longer when repeating a curse word, compared to when they were saying something non-offensive. The best words to say next time you stub your toe—the f-bomb and that one that begins with an “s” and ends with a “t” had the most pain-killing properties. Oh, and since the study was in England, “bullocks” scored pretty high too. [CNN] Keep reading »
