THERE is nothing so impertinent, so sensitive and foolish, as our way of vulgar discourse, when mixed with oaths and curses.
Swearing, that lewdness of the tongue, That scum and excrement of the mouth commonly used by bullying peers in industry the office and the military parade ground, and now the entertainment industry, it is of all vices the most foolish and sensless; it makes a persons conversation unpleasant, his Discourse fruitless, and his Language Nonsense.
On leaving; as a guest at a local servicemans club, I asked a senior staff person if I could be allowed to voice the "F" word during any social conversation within the club. I was told "No", our club will not condone swearing within the club at any time. My reply was; it seems the Pious bastards running this club can charge patrons $45..00 to listen to a barrage of gushing filth incorporating every known top drawer swear word known to man by that ugly bastard 'Rodney Rude' Billed as entertainment, What's your club motto mate, Is it * "I see no ships"? .....I was shown the door.
Some people worry that slang will somehow corrupt the language. We should be so lucky. Most slang lexicons are preciously guarded by their sub cultures as membership badges.

No one is ever capable of swearing properly in any language other than their own apart from one exception, in my case I have frequently been informed I have spoken Japanese or a similar lingo, and I have learned that others too have experienced this phenomena, 'Its a kind of First Aid to the injured, It seems to deaden the pain.
But others will say "Let us swear while we may, for in heaven it will not be allowed.
SO, "What is your feeble excuse for the use of profanity, or your reasons for abstention, waiting to hear from you.
Vest Daily Gaggle. Yes I am feeling better.
Have a lovely day. BTW. *Admiral Nelson...Blind Eye, get it? "Eye see no ships"
