Well, do you? Are you that person that others seem to cringe around when you open your mouth and a “fuck” inevitably comes out? Are you someone who’s been told “only people who aren’t smart enough to know other words curse” (or some shit like that) before?
Then this is the post for you. This is all about that cursing, about that cursing, and that yeast.*
While pissing around on Facebook earlier, I came across this purely scientific article on HuffPost that talks about which curse words are popular in different areas of the U.S. Before reading past the first few sentences, I thought that I wouldn’t see much representation here for South Carolina, with it being in the Bible Belt and having all these people that condemn you to hell for even watching a movie with curse words, let alone saying them yourself.
I thought wrong.
The first curse word HuffPost has listed is darn. Ignoring whether that’s really a legit curse word, it doesn’t seem to be terribly popular in South Carolina, but folks in the Midwest are rather fond of it.
Eh. “Get out of the darn way, you idiot driver,” doesn’t do it for me.
And then there’s damn. South Carolina is pretty much blanketed in orange.
I know what you’re thinking–maybe damn being popular in SC and most of the rest of the South is a fluke. Surely it’s bound to come up with all that damning people to hell, right?
But then there’s bitch, shit, and fuck. Apparently we love to use those words. “Damn you to hell, you shitty fucking bitch!”
In addition to darn, also not as popular in my area are asshole, gosh, cunt, and motherfucker. Two of those four are especially popular with me when I’m driving, although I try to mouth them or just think them so strongly that maybe the other driver will get it when the kiddos are with me.
Does your brand of potty mouth match up with the maps in the article?
*Bonus: The cesspool that is Facebook also produced this nifty little article about a woman who made sourdough bread using yeast from her vajayjay. Just in time for Thanksgiving! I have to admit that the idea made me laugh hysterically while Sam was retching. Maybe this one should be filed under “how to make my WordPress blog get more views”?
