This Open Thread has Broken Up With AdSense

Our frank nature has finally sent the Googles over the edge. 

We got kicked out of AdSense for being too saucy this week. There were a few moments of panic, but we’re motherfucking unicorns, so we figured out how to make our other revenue streams work just a little harder to make up the difference. We tried being respectable, but “nice” is not our color.

Fun fact: 90% of our Google search traffic goes to our sex posts.

So for this evening’s open thread, let’s all share our favorite cuss word. The Moral Eye of Google can’t tell us what to do.

David Tennant in Fright Night, saying "Fuck Off."

My favorite swear is MOTHERFUCKER. It has just enough syllables and hard consonants to be really satisfying as it rolls of the tongue.

I hate Google sometimes.

Fuck is a favorite of mine. Twatwaffle and douchenugget are awful fun. I also like words like “asshat,” “assface,” “jerkass,” and “stupid fucking dipshit.”

…actually, I kinda like swearing as a whole.

I refuse to use words like bitch or cunt though. Whole lot of nope for those.

My current favorites are “For fuck’s sake” and “Jesus Fucking Christ.” The latter much to the dismay of my liberal, “hasn’t attended church regularly in 40 years, but still gets mad when we use the Lord’s name in vain” mother.

All time favorite: That’s bullshit!

I’m all about the word ‘fuckin’ and I sometimes use it too liberally in conversation. Like, “And then fuck, what did he say? He said something like fuckin’, that’s not my job and fuckin’ I was like noooooo you DID NOT!” There’s pauses there to add the dramatic element. It sounds perfect when I say it, trust me.

My cussing depends on what company I’m in. At the moment “bollocks” is being heard fairly regularly. “Fuckwit” is one brought out, too, along with “arsehole”. Good gracious, those do seem like rather crude cuss words. I’m also known to occasionally use the c-word that often Must Not Be Said. But my favourite? It has to be the wonderful, “fuck”. It’s like cake, it goes with everything.
