A Brief History of Swearing

#8
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
