A Brief History of Swearing

Swearing is a misunderstood art form.
Come on man that's going over the top even for the Naafi.

You are Zaphod Beeblebrox and I claim my tenner.
Pah, I can beat that with

Cherie Blair face.

personally I'd like to see someone beat Cherie Blairs face, with a variety of blunt objects. Objects such as a Mastiff or Challenger.
Without wanting to sound too high brow (and also a knob) I have noticed over the years that it is almost socially acceptable in general conversation to chuck in the odd f bomb.
Stephen Fry once lamented that the English language was sliding slowly, but irrevocably down the shitter (ok, he didn't use the word "shitter") with the rise in text speak etc.
The alternate argument is that language is meant to evolve - it's primary use to make one person understand another. For example, if we went back to good old Will i am Shakespeare it's doubtful we could understand what the fuck he was on about.

Bum, tits and fannies
You lost me after Wanting!
If you look on a map you'll see that Damn is nowhere near Swearing.
Hmnmmm confused... I would say that Damn is near River or Lake, nowhere is not a word I have observed before!
