Post on, and filled with, profanity after the break.

I’ve never sworn much. Sometimes I’ll use a word here or there in the right company, often for effect or because I know the audience won’t expect it, but usually I don’t really see the need.

But some times there are some inspiring, possibly necessary uses. Such as Are you your team’s motherfucker?:

Every team needs a motherfucker, someone who is tough and mean and willing to do anything to win. That can mean getting in the other team’s face or getting in the face of a teammate if necessary. … Years ago, Maryland center Buck Williams, who carried a Bible with him everywhere he went, was a motherfucker. His coach liked to say of Williams: “Off the court he’s the nicest person you’ll ever meet. ‘Yes sir, no sir, yes ma’am, no ma’am. On the court, he’ll kill you if he has to.”

On the other hand, the least necessary uses of profanity are often the funniest. McSweeney’s has these covered:

I’m about to head up to the attic right now to find that wicker fucker, dust it off, and jam it with an insanely ornate assortment of shellacked vegetables. When my guests come over it’s gonna be like, BLAMMO! Check out my shellacked decorative vegetables, assholes. Guess what season it is—fucking fall. There’s a nip in the air and my house is full of mutant fucking squash.

I may even throw some multi-colored leaves into the mix, all haphazard like a crisp October breeze just blew through and fucked that shit up.
