Puzzling Profanities

As it's been a while since we had a post with profanity in it, I figure it's about time for another. Having lived in Washington Heights for some time, I've noticed a fairly bizarre phrase commonly used among local residents. Whilst complaining about something they feel is rediculous or something they think it's crazy for them to do they often exclaim: "F_ck that sh_t!" Now, most profanities are, well, profane (and I really don't understand why people use them when a simple "Filibuster that sea-gherkin" will make do) but this one is really quite repulsive. I wonder if people realized what it is they're suggesting they'd still use that phrase.

  2. The other option is to take a cue from Joss Whedon, and just curse in a foreign language. That way, you sound cosmopolitan, and you usually can get away with it.

    I'm a particular fan of "gao yang jong duh goo yang" ("motherless goat of all motherless goats"), and "gun hoe-tze bee dio-se" ("engage in a feces-hurling contest with a monkey.")

  3. Eli when your neighbors are, as as they would say, Ingesting S_i_loads of F_c_ing drugs, you cannot expect them to clearly express themselves. In fact, under they influence of a drug induced hallucination, it it entirely possible that the average Wahshington Heightsan would F-ck that Sh-t.

    Excuse me while I go vomit.
