'Cause In Space, No One Can Hear You Curse!

I was exchanging comments with Robbie at Prism Warden, and got into a convo about political / blog cursing. It seems liberal bloggers are much more adept at it than conservatives. Then I remembered seeing this on the web at Digg.com. Maybe because libs seem to approach things from a more emotional POV, that they are more prone to tap into their primal emotions when expressing themselves.

Primatives!

Just kidding. We all curse. Even my dad throws a naughty or two. Of coarse my mom, 1/2 Sicilian, throws the "F" bomb as if she's auditioning for a Mamet play. Taught me every "f"ing thing I know.

PS. I kinda like some of the sci-fi space cursing. You had "Frell" in Farscape (great show), "Frag" in the new Battle Star Galactica (even better than previous), and some unpronounceable Chinese expletive in Firefly (can't wait for the movie in a couple of weeks). Now that I think about it, maybe that's why I don't like the Star Trek Next Gen stuf as much - no cursing. Though there was no cursing, I do favor DS-9. It had a darkness that the others lacked. Oh, and I don't recall if there was any cursing on Babylon-5, but between the Narn fighting the Centauri, the invasive Psi-Corps, and Garibaldi endlessly getting screwed by life, there must have been some cursing somewhere. Besides, the Vorlons and the Shadows were way, way cool!

there was a movie with joe pesci, (i think, coulda been anyone as far as i can think), about gansters ... some kinda silly mobster send-up from the early 80's. (when i remember i'll know).
but they used the word 'fargin' instead of fuck. it was so corny. everybody in the band ran around sayin' fargin for anything.
i still use that and a good cartoon'daggnnabbitt' when the occasion arises, which is always quite often.

My husband thinks bloggers are weird and he calls Cylons "Klingons." I'm noticing a pattern.
