    Whoa, what a long thread. Too much air stagnation for heavens sake.

    Society calibrates itself over time. Now the trend may be more crude. Tomorrow more pristine. Bottom line, we all can contribute, or not, to its calibration to our preferences.

    We are a diverse community, country, world. Embrace it. Getting your feelings hurt because of open conversation in no way directed at you is, in my opinion, overly sensitive. Now you direct it at one person, different story to me.

    I believe in civility. I believe in my choices. Feel free to make yours.

    This year I'm fishing and drinking with Roper and I'm gonna hope to hear him drop some F bombs. Why? Because he is a calming and grounded presence and if he can let a few fly from time to time that's f'ing okay by me.

    Now you all know why I like to fish alone. I can do anything I want to by my lonesome. I can cuss, fart, belch out loud, scratch my ass, rub my balls. Drink my whiskey, beer or whine. And I can have fun while I'm doing all that.

    And I do like to cuss because I'm an old man and this is what old men do.

    I find an irony in that those of us in this thread ignorant enough to use vulgar language also seem to be the ones with the best grasp on spelling, grammar and punctuation.

    I also find people who use foul language, to be in general, more trust worthy. They're not putting on a front to impress, they are who they are. Generally speaking that is.

    “Profanity is the common crutch of the conversational cripple.” David Keuck

    While I don`t necessarily agree with this , as i use profanity daily , and respect and speak the language of the company I keep , and believe a well-placed F-bomb can enhance a conversation , I do believe that excess profanity serves no valid purpose .

    There is no excuse for steel-face though . No matter who , when , where , or why it was said .:)

    It sure looks like the advocates of sophomoric potty humor and profanity have won the day and in doing so have convinced me that I live in a changed world.
    That said, I have an idea and I call my idea Flatulence and Profanity aka FAP.
    I am the president and CEO of Lowest Common Denominator Recording , a subsidiary of High and Mighty Recording .
    I’m sending a fully staffed mobile recording studio to the Pacific North West on or about 20 February 2013, locations TBA. Included with state of the art recording electronics will no les than three (3) Whoopee Cushions.
    I’m requesting that those of you that advocate sophomoric potty humor and profanity prepare your material in advance of my team’s arrival.
    Suggestions:
    Write and be prepared to perform rap music to the beat of Whoopee Cushions. There is one caveat and that is you must use all of the common street profanity with the following exceptions. YOU, HIM, HER, IT and EM must be included in the profanity to enhance comprehension. Or tell profane jokes using the Whoopee Cushions and profanity as punctuation. From what I have seen on this forum the combinations are endless.
    Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend the recording sessions, but instead will be stuck in Wyoming hard at work on marketing demographics.
    Possible uses for the recordings are:
    On a family vacation, the kids in the back seat are becoming restless. Plug the CD into the player and FAP’em. They will be overwhelmed with mirth all of the way to Disney Land. Soccer Moms could FAP their energetic charges. Let us not forget carpools, public transportation as they all could use a good FAPPING. A good FAPPING could increase the chances of an athletic team’s winning percentages. I think FAP could go nation wide. And to think that the area that gave us Grunge, with little effort could provide the nation with FAP.
    FAP on Dudes and because I live in Wyoming, I use the “D” word reluctantly.

    If that's what I think it is, then yes. And hilarious.

    Not sure if it's crude, but I do have an uncontrollable desire to stick my pinky in that there fella's eye.
