Taking it out of my kids' vocabulary.

Can you take it out of my wife's vocabulary while you're at it? I'd prefer she use the grown-up versions if anything.

I guess that makes "m**********r" the 42DD?

Battlestar Galactica took it to syfy level with Fracking.
It was a brilliant way to get swears on the air.

Saw that on your FB stream today. A long overdue topic. The training bra - I say it WAY too often around my girls. Nice.

i freaking love this - see it would be weird and inappropriate and overkill had i used the other word.

But I love the real word. It is the most versatile word we have. It can be used so many ways. I have to ask though can they say "freaking out"? Clearly that is not a place where the other word can be substituted. Unless it's a bad call in baseball and the sentence starts,"That guy was _________"

Brilliant. And in Vermont, "Jeesum Crow" is the training bra for "Freaking."

Ah, the gateway swears. Leads to a path of sin and degradation, I say, galdurnnit!

You guys are freaking awesome. Thanks for the funny comments.

That and "Frickin"... in fact, "Frickin" is the AA Cup of swears.
