Under cats, I saw Cats 101 with the following blurb:
For those unfamiliar with cats, they're the only mammals on earth that are superior to humans in both intellect and regurgitation. While they stand only 10 inches tall, they still look down on us with great disdain, refusing to acknowledge our presence unless we're holding a can opener...Bingo - off I went to visit TellingDad.com!
Now this is the first time I've been to this blog, so while I was there I decided to look around. In the sidebar, I saw an interesting button that read "F-bomb Free! What the F@&% Does This mean?" Hmmm...click!
And here Telling Dad tells us why he does not use the F-bomb in his blog:
I’m of the belief that you don’t need to litter posts with F-bombs and juvenile scat jokes to make a point or to make people laugh. There are many writers out there who use curse words with great precision and they actually do a solid job of boosting the quality of their post (see The Bloggess). But for the most part, and I say this knowing I’m just begging for F-laced comments, I see bloggers using vulgarity with reckless abandon and with no real respect for their message.
If I want to offend you, I won’t need curse words to do it, and I feel that using profanity just to close out a thought is akin to a short-cut. My grandfather used to say that people swear when they can’t think of anything intelligent to say. I tend to agree. Granted, this is the same man who told me that Scotch is God’s nectar, but I do echo his thoughts on cursing.Yay Telling Dad - I couldn't have said it better myself! I cringe when I hear the word spoken. When I was growing up (yes - I am showing my age here), it just wasn't used so I tend to use words like "freaking" when I'm really upset. And no, you will never see me use the F-Bomb in a post.
I agree with Telling Dad when he says,
If I feel that a sentence or thought could REALLY use an F-bomb to drive home the message then you’ll see me drop such words as “freaking”, F&@%, or my favorite replacement, “Fuzzle”.So I proudly proclaim that Bunny Blog's is F-Bomb Free! Thanks Telling Dad for saying (or not saying) what I've been thinking all along.
