Cunts!

The worse swearword in the world?

Well, it's cunt, obviously, but this article is a bullshit way to write about it. White collar, hold my hands, upper middle class, oh, look, the children bullshit. The Guardian really needs to speak to me.
Someone direct them to me, please.

And it isn't spadger! It's bongmox. Fuck, I'm gonna get grounded now...

And I agree: it seems a rather long and round about way to drop in the cunt word into the article. It seemed that there was some juvenile sense of satisfaction from the author at swearing in a proper article. And showing off that you have a nice middle-class life. Cunt.

apparently we might be missing the context for it--still, i stand by my opinion, tho.

Dude, you've got to get off this streak of bagging stuff that any idiot could've predicted would be decidedly sub-par. First it was a public announcement by JK Rowling and the ensuing reaction from fanficcers, second it was a shitty Hollywood action film, and third it's a banal column from the living breathing genre of banal, un-funny recounting-my-crazy-family-life newspaper columns.

Please, set the bar higher and slam something that anyone, anywhere might expect not to suck!

Hell yes, boring day at work, you got in the way ...

Anyway you've been the blog-slammer's equivalent of a flat-track bully over the past few posts.

I think you may be taking it out of context of the style of his weekly - it was meant to be funny and Ronson constantly reveals himself as a paranoid, whiney, needy dickhead. It's much more about revealing himself as a bad father (other than bad husband, colleague, friend, rival) than any real fear of polluting his son.

He's recently stopped doing the column - and the word "limone" returns to bite him: "http://www.guardian.co.uk/weekend/story/0,,2168074,00.html"


His specialism is writing about conspiracy theories and nut-job organisations - The Men Who Stare At Goats and Them: Adventures with Extremists are the relevant tomes.

Well Ben, it wouldn't have made much of an article thus:

"Dad, what's the worst swear word?"

"It's cunt, you silly prick!"

bad, bad words for nice things
I'm editing a C19th diary, and there's one word which is unmistakable, and a rather alarming in context. She writes: 'he will cunt me no more though I lose my life for it.' The word is here a verb, and she's talking about the abusive husband from whom she's run away.
Luckily the publishers don't have a problem with it.

Re: bad, bad words for nice things
"Cunt" is happily used as a verb over here in Glasgow -- meaning to smack someone about, headbutt them or something similar (as in "Ah pure cunted the wee nyaff."). Don't know how widespread that useage is outside Scotland though.

very true. I agree that the tone of the article is sickening sugar-coated. It's obscene that with all the bad shit happening in the world, a single word can still have people quaking in their boots.
