Hannity Profanity

Posted in Uncategorized by chamblee54 on April 20, 2011

Stumbling through the archives for something to say on four twenty, PG found with a post titled Profanity or Hannity. It had nothing to do with the prominent whiner, but lots to do with cuss words.

Chamblee54 tries to be a low profanity blog. Sometimes a wirty dord slips in, but the idea is to keep a clean house. Some people take great offense at words referring to body parts and functions, excretion, and the eternal destination of your soul. Oh, and ethnic slurs, unless the slur in question describes you. When you post one hundred words, and one of them is a swear word, some people will forget the ninety nine clean words to focus on the one dirty word. When you want people to pay attention to your message, you should keep the medium clean.

The seminal post was about something called the cuss o meter. You enter the url of your blog, and the c.o.m. gives you a score. When Chamblee54 was tested three years ago, it got a zero percent. Today, if you click on the field, to enter a url, you are transported to a dating site. There is a current outbreak of malicious code on the internet, and PG left the cuss o meter quickly.

The blogger who directed PG to the cuss o meter was Renegade Evolution. She is a fun loving sex worker, and is not Irish. (Whether the cuss o meter is Irish, or Belorussian, is another mystery.) In her post today, she uses an onomatopoeic word for animal waste.

Many of the people who don’t like cuss words claim a religious justification. They see the choice of words as a moral issue. Some people believe that their religion tells them not to use certain words. (If you look in the original texts of the Bible, you will probably find every bad word imaginable.) The thing is, many of these religious people use words like “G-d” and “Jesus” to express their anger. They use sacred names to hurt others, in direct violation of the Third Commandment. Perhaps these people would be better off if they said *firetruck*.

      Thanks for stopping by.
      When my mother wanted to say someone was Jewish, the phrase she favored was “he’s not Irish.”
      One of my friends these days sells Celtic folk music as a hobby. His name is Michael Liebmann.
