a swear word and we do? it always amuses me when they say bastard on the simpsons or whatever.
maybe it's like people saying 'ass' and 'bitch' on the radio.
and have NO idea what Wanker means.
in the US or here. Bastard is never used in the uk before 9pm i dont think, but its used on cartoons and kids shows in america, it seems really weird
so I really cant see why it should be considered a swearword or censored.
PS I know there are loads of you now, but I was born in 1960 so I am a much rarer B*******
he censors HIMSELF then says "o I really cant see why it should be considered a swearword or censored."
it weakens the humour when people kind of repeat the punchline
guys who use 'cunt' as every form of grammar except a conjunction?
Americans are morally superior, because we only use 'cunt' when your girlfriend gets caught fucking the entire Los Angeles Kings hockey team. Plus, God is on own side and He's given us express permission to use 'bastard' as we see fit.
really fuck sports teams in their entirety in america?
WOW! I'm actually quite genuinely impressed.
She must have had a lot of stamina!
one episode where Homer finds his long-lost half brother
who is a bastard
so they can use it and stuff. I think anyway
ive heard bart utter it aswell and not in that episode, its also used in family guy, and i dont think they use swearing either.
there's definitely an episode where Peter says 'fuck'.
i havent seen that muc hfamily guy admittedly
yet I am not a bugger I think that this applies to most people so why were you allowed to say bugger during the 60's and 70's on tv but not the others.....this all smacks of inconsistancy
I thought it was an innocent activity involving 'mud horses'
twat? or bollocks?
Have they got swearwords which we never use?
I'm rubbish at swearing, unless it is in Spanish.
we would of absorbed them through our viewing of american tv probably.
Also american censorship is quite strange. They have like no swearing whatsoever, jack bauer can gun down 20 people and slit someones throat but has to resort to saying 'dammit' instead of 'fuck'. They also arent allowed to show a woman getting shot, but a man is ok.
but I keep it our secret. ;)
I dunno about whether or not we've got anything you don't use though...you guys are much more creative in this department - admittedly. But we invented putting cheese on pizza so it all evens out.
It's long forgotten...but WC Fields used to call little black children "pickineys"...a really derogatory term...but since no one remembers what it means the censors let it go by on the old movie channel. I always laugh! I feel guilty about it, but I laugh anyway. :)
All this "no good bum so of a whore" shit.
Where's the "YOU FACKIN' CAAANT"s?
And they don't say fantastic words like "mug", "prat" and "knobhead"
someone who is white who refers to their own mixed-race child as an "afanaf" (probably got that wrong spelling or term wise) which is pretty awful...
