It's only truth in advertising.

Meatless burgers are the work of the Devil, after all!

Because there is NOTHING in life more deserving of attention and the safety of our children than an invective that is used colloquially now.

Some mothers have too damn much time on their hands.

These moms could protest that thousands of children are
locked up in cages by our government, but I guess this is
a good issue also.

It's times like these I wish George Carlin was still alive to add his succinct, razor-sharp two cents...

Wait..."damn" in a commercial sets these people off but The President of The United States calls some countries "shitholes", refers to the checks put on him by Congress as "bullshit" and talks of grabbing women by the "pussy" and they are fawning and praying over him like the second coming?

Sure.

Nowhere is there greater hypocrisy than in the self-appointed keepers of the faith.

Conan O'Brien can say "shit" on his TBS show - I don't think you can do it on
network, but cable must have relaxed its rules. It still throws me because it
was taboo for so long. Luckily he uses it sparingly and when it works in a joke!

Reminds a little of Back to the Future, when George is
practising Marty's prepared lines of 'Hey you, get your
damn hands off her' and asks Marty if he really thinks
he should swear. Before then, I don't think I'd ever
realised that damn was considered a swear word by
anyone. Still, that was good old 1955.

I was told off by my mom for saying "bloody" around
1970! Also for reading out aloud the word "cobblers"
from a pair of comedy underpants in a store! (Cobbler`s
awls=balls)
Strangeley she never said a word about me calling my
brother a "berk", it was only as an adult i found out it
was rhyming sland for Berkshire hunt, i`ll leave the
rest to your imagination.

I'm reminded of an oft told tale, of the first time I swore in front of my father. Driving home from the drugstore, circa 1964, reading the latest issue of FANTASTIC FOUR and discovering it ended on a cliffhanger. "Damn!" I exclaimed, involuntarily.

See, with the lousy distribution in Edmonton, I knew it was highly unlikely I would ever see the second part of that story. In fact, it was at least a decade later.
