my problem is I slip when it's professional time so I'm trying to just to eliminate it all together. I hate when I hear myself say "that sucks" in a meeting with my boss or presenting something.

I don't have a problem with "the B word" really, it's just the over use of it for agressive women. That's why I decided to start saying "abbrasive". I like agressive women- more power to them! But, I don't care for "see you next tuesdays."

I've been watching "denise richards- it's complicated" and everytime she swears she donates a pair of shoes to goodwill. Maybe I should do something like that. withhold chocolate from myself? I'm not in to shoes.

my mom was telling me how some of the teachers get really upset when kids say "pimp." They find it really offensive. A guy in my class in high school got in big trouble for calling benjamine franklin a pimp. My mom tried to explain how to kids now it's not really a bad thing. She also had to explain 69 to another teacher who didn't know why it made the kids laugh.

Which sounds like a Monty Python joke, but it's not. (Sound it out.) In fact, according to some etymologists, "c" was not used as a term of abuse for a woman until the 20th century. Before that it only referred to a part of the body.

According to critic Matthew Hunt, it was replaced like other four-letter words by polysyllabic ones, which were considered more respectable. He explains: "Thus, 'c' was replaced with 'vagina' and 'vulva', 'crap' gave way to 'excrement', and 'piss' was surpassed by 'urine'."

According to etymologists, the modern word "c" does not relate to the Latin word cunnus, meaning pudenda. We're not sure how they're so sure of it, but they swear "c" comes from the Germanic root, kunton meaning female genitalia. Which is interesting if you consider the fact that the Germanic root is ku- meaning "hollow place," and the Latin root is keu- meaning "to cover, to conceal." These days the "c" is definitely considered a hole and not something that goes over or covers something else. Then again, in the end, a cunnus is a kunton, is a "c".

I got this from this link:

Are you sure it wasn't critic Michael Hunt?

And since we are still jacking this thread up-
One of my sociology professors was talking about the term "tossed salad" being used to refer to America society rather than melting pot. Every time she said tossed salad the class would laugh. She thought she was just being interesting. So she began to ask questions like "If we were to create a tossed salad what would you put in it." Kids began shouting out things like carrots- more laughter, cucumbers- even more laughter. Poor thing never got it.
