I love them all. Unreservedly. I especially like them in combinations. Or foreign languages.

I don't like that I can't use them all the time. I don't like when my husband uses misogynistic or chauvinistic phrases.

emilythehopeless said...

i say fuck WAY too much. my husband makes fun of me.. saying that in rants that's all he can hear me say.

Jenera said...

I'd say fuck is my favorite because it carries such emotion. But I use shit all the time.

I do not like cunt or cock (as in cocksucker). It just sounds way too vulgar.

Morgan said...

I'm with Jenera. I say fuck alot but mostly shit.

I hate cock and cunt too, they just sound gross.

Nic said...

I use fuck quite a bit but I tend to have a different phrase each week for example tit-wank or arse-wipe or twat-head! I dont use c**t though, thats too vulgar, even for me!

Valerie said...

Fuck has got to be my favorite, however my favorite phrase is cum burping gutter slut.

I hate the word cunt and faggot. Both bother me a lot.

Kymberli said...

I had a post on this very topic a few months ago.

I tend to love the creative curse words. Ones like fucknuttery and pisstivity and shitnicker.

A well-placed curse word can be quite humorous.

Though I don't mind the f-bomb in and of itself, I HATE it when someone's every other word is 'fuck' or some derivation thereof.

I agree with Jenera - cunt and cock gross me out. I feel like I need to wash my hands because I typed it.

Jendeis said...

Fuck is the best. It can be used in so many different ways.

I'm also a fan of asshat.

I hate cunt. Absolutely hate it.

Mrslady1975 said...

I use fuck, shit and bastard alot. I do NOT like it when a person uses God Damn (or God damn it). I don't know why but I just don't.

Liddy said...

Oh I love saying fuck. I drop that in my mind way too much but it does carry so much emotion.

I also like combining swear words together. Fanfuckingtastic is one of my favorites.

I don't like cunt or cock at all. I also hate GD or any of the swear words added with God, Jesus or Holy.

Lisa said...

I love to curse in French. Those would be my absolute favorite.

I would have to agree with the others... cunt and cock are the worse!

Tara said...

I say 'fuck' a lot. Unlike most people who commented already, I do like to drop a 'cunt' occassionally for effectiveness when my 'fuck' is not reaching the desired effect (due to overuse) - although I recently said it in front of my mother, which didn't go over very well. (Perhaps this means that I'm getting to comfortable with it and should scale back a bit)

I hate the wussy curse words like "arse" or "dang it". Those are imposters and really shouldn't be considered curse words anyways.

Carrie Ann said...

You know you swear too much when you do it without realizing. At my aunt's Catholic funeral a few months ago, Mark, Ricky, and I brought up the gifts (wine, water, hosts) up to the priest. When we were handing them to the priest, my arm bumped Mark's and he almost dropped the hosts and I said very loudly, "JESUS CHRIST!!!"

I had no clue I did that til the whole family (and relatives) told me at the lunch. DUH.

jenn said...

definitely fuck or asshole (jackass is a close 3rd)

have to agree with cunt- it just sounds crass.

projectkjetil said...

I love to shout FUCK sometimes! It's just the perfect sound and the perfect way to let it out.

I absolutely hate The C Word, and no, I don't mean Cancer. I just hate it hate it hate it.

Christina said...

I think fuck is my cuss word of choice. Drives my husband crazy because he always says such an ugly word shouldn't be coming out of a cute mouth.

I rarely say damn or damnit. Just too boring and it doesn't get much of a reaction.

Lilith Silvermane said...

I use fuck and cunt often. Really depends on the flow of traffic.

Twat bugs me though.... No idea why.

Hmmm.... you make me laugh!

calliope said...

1. fuck and all her variations (motherfucker, fucking hell, for fuck's sake)

2. the word pussy skeeves me so I don't say it. I don'd if other people use the word cunt, but I feel like I am not Margaret Cho enough. ya know?

Sarah R said...

I like saying Fuck, but I never use it around Andrew. I say it at work all the time (hoping nobody hears). I also say, "Fucksicle". I say shit as well.

I hate the words "cunt" and "pussy". Ugh. Yuck.

Poltzie said...

Fuck, Shit, Holy Fuck, whatever - I love them all the same! The only one I don't love is cunt because it's so sexist but I don't hate it either. I've got to stop swearing soon though as Chickey is talking A LOT these days and I'm a practice what you preach kind of gal.

amazingk8 said...

I like jerkassmotherfucker. I know its not just one but the stringing together of words is really what does it for me.
I too don't like pussy or cunt. I wonder if it was a bunch of guys responding what their least favorite would be?

amazingk8 said...

Also, sometimes a good old CRAP is quite satisfying too. Heehee.

~Chel~ said...

LMAO @ your comments! My fave word is FUCK also...People say I tend to overuse it...That I sound like a sailor, etc...Bullshit...HAA HAA HAA

I generally don't drop the C bomb unless a bitch has REALLY pissed me off...

Io said...

Would I ask you to pick a favorite between your children? How can you ask me to pick a favorite curse word? They are all unique and delightful in their own fucking way.

LJ said...

I've never met a fucking curse word I didn't like. I used to not love cunt, but lately, I've found people who deserve being called one.

'Murgdan' said...

Love fuck.

Hate pussy.

Cate said...

I love fuck, say it way too often, I'm afraid that when Lex does become verbal he'll repeat it.

I'm not a fan of cunt, just isn't one I use regularly.

The Captain's Wife said...

Fuck/Cunt.....that's my answer and I am sticking to it..

Kristin said...

It's really, really hard for me to pick one. I like fuck, fucktard, ass clown, and fucknuttery.

I really, passionately hate cunt and cock...eeew!

Paz said...

love fucking mother fucker
hate cunt, just like everyone else, so why do so many people use that word? Is it only men who tend to use it?

Beautiful Mess said...

As much as I love to say fuck, I LOVE saying cunt. I know I'm a minority here, but I really love that word. It just rolls out of my mouth so well and the shock value is amazing!

My least favorite cuss word is...ummm I don't know if I have a least favorite cuss word. That's not good....

Lavender Luz said...

MY EYES ARE MELTING! THEY'RE MELTING!

haha

sacredandscarred said...

Fuck, for the versatility and showstoppingness.

I do not like motherfucker, since learning of its origins.

DP and I saw a show once by a comedian who had researched the origins of swear words.

kerri said...

1. Fuck. I say it wat too much. But I love all the variations of it too... :)

2. Cunt... can't stand it. doesn't mean i haven't said it a couple times. ha!

MrsSpock said...

Fuck is an incredibly flexible word.

I agree that cunt and cock are vulgar and gross. I was uncomfortable even just typing them. They're words dirty old porno med use.

Sacred and Scarred- what's the origins of motherfucker, I'm curious?

Tara said...

HA HA... Io... hilarious.

Charlotte said...

FUCK. Fuck. Fuck. Fuck. My favorite ever, but I think we've discussed this before ;)

Least Fav? they all fucking rock!!!

Mwaahhh!!!

theclam said...

My favourite cuss word has to be FUCK, there is nothing like a well timed "FUCK" thrown into conversation and "fucking" just really makes something seem so se-ri-ous! I also use shit all the time sometimes subconsciously (sp?)

My least fav is "c*unt" - its so disgusting - I just cannot bring myself to say it at all...

xxx

theclam said...

Hahhaha, helps to actually not type the letter you're replacing with an asterisk - must be the 3 glasses of wine I had tonight!

xxx

Emmie :) said...

fuck is old faithful 'round these parts.

any word pertaining to the female anatomy is gross; twat, cunt, pussy... *bleghk*

~*JaYmE*~ said...

I would say my favorite is fuck. I say it wayyyy too much. Actually I curse way to much period! My least favorite is cunt. I think its just dirty. I never say that word. Ever. Twat is a nasty one too.

Becca said...

Fuckstick, dickweed, dildo and shitballs are my favorites.

I hate cunt, pussy, faggot and cock, but I will say that I loved George Carlin. Fuck, I miss that man.

Wordgirl said...

It's funny -- I was just writing TB about this because I seem all demure on my blog I swear all the time in my head and am related to women who have the ability, when angry, to swear like truck-drivers -- and so I save my swearing for true moments of anger which make my family go wide-eyed at any utterance of 'shit' -- and G knows its serious if I throw out the f-bomb..

Weirdly though the most effective curse that shocks me comes from G -- and its a translation of a German phrase which doesn't hold a ton of weight here -- but he'll say to a woman say, who's driving 'you stupid cow' - -and that is shocking and offensive to me in ways that other phrases aren't...

Melody said...

My favorite to exclaim "Motherfucker!!"

Least favorite? Probably cunt.

Miss Tori said...

Fav: Shit!

Unfav: c*nt (see, I don't even like to write it much less say it)

DH hates it if I say the F word, and I only do so if I get really mad.

Kaci said...

I say damn more than anything else, so maybe it's my favorite. I only realized that when Matthew so cutely said "damnit" one day.

I hate pussy. I also hate to hear the word fart out of someone else's mouth, but I'd hardly say it's a curse word.

Bay said...

Fuck or Motherfucker.

Cunt. I've always hated it will always hate it and I cringe when other people say it.

areyoukiddingme said...

Hey Nancy, Happy Anniversary! Sorry to switch topics...no swearing required on this message

Cassandra said...

Thanks to Deadwood my husband and I constantly call each other "cocksucker." As in, "Could you bring me some milk, cocksucker?" "Have a good day, cocksucker!"

Not a fan of bitch, as a verb or noun, or I guess any other part of speech (adjective?).

Happy Anniversary, Sock Buddy (and Mr. Sock Buddy)!

Poppy said...

I'm not quite sure how I found myself here but I loved your question and decided to leave my two cents.

My fave curse word is fuck and all its various forms (fucksicle, fucker, etc.)

My least favorite is the C**T word...though I do use it to refer to my daughter in law who is most definitely a cunt.

Damn that felt good.

WiseGuy said...

Here from LFCA...and loving the post!

Ans 1: favourite - kameena, I tend to use that often!

Ans 2: least favourite - any cuss word that involves mother- or sister-, e.g. motherf$$$er.

And oh, HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!

zach05kate95 said...

I am OK with fuck, and I hate the word cunt.

Birdee said...

Favorite? I have 2 that just feel gooood to use, Shit and Dammit.
Least Fave? F* tho I do use it, I just feel stupid using it, especially IRL.

Birdee said...

Oh and in reading other comments, I won’t even type the C word. LOL tho I have a funny story about it.
I was talking amongst a bunch of younger girls about our most hated curse word, I said "I HATE the C word".
One girl whispered to another "What's the C word?" - The other girl politely replied in a whisper "Christ" LMFAO!!

higretchen said...

This is a hilarious thread.... I do love jackass - it fits so many situations and people. And agree with most others here - hate the dreaded C word!

Another favorite of mine is a semi-made up swear/combined word that my friend uses - she's from France so has a strong accent and sometimes uses the wrong words anyway - so, everytime she uses it (which is a lot), I'm just hysterical: Shitbombs (must be said with french accent).

JamieD said...

Similar to others - favorite has to be fuck and all its variations. Fucktard, son of a fuck, fucktastic. 'Jesus tits' has been sleeping out a lot lately.

Can't do cunt though . . .

Not in the Water said...

Ok so I had to answer, too. I say Fuck, shit, damn, crap (and feel like an old lady when I do.)

I normally do not say CU** but I will say See you next Tuesday (C U N - ext T - uesday). HOWEVER, I often refer to my frist RE aka the fuck up as a CU**.

I do not like the P word as in cat.

My husband like the Andy Sanberg shorts on SNL. And in one song they refer to Cunthole steve..I do find my self singing along with the song.

I have a funny story...

DH's co worker's 5 year got in trouble at school for cursing.
Mom: What did you say?
Kid: I said fuck...shit...
Mom: Hunny, don't say the word, say F word S word.
Kid: *sigh* Ok I said the F word, s- word, b-word and the O word.
Mom: What's the O word?
Kid: You know the O word
Mom: No I don't know.
Kid:*sighs again* YOU KNOW MOM...
OSS HOLE!

sacredandscarred said...

Okay so you know I try to avoid swearing in earshot of the children, but sometimes I get so mad that things slip.

Today, at a play cafe, TBB announced "Mummy I need to go to the toilet, I've half pissed my pants".

Ooops.

IdleMindOfBeth said...

Fav: Fuck, and all of its many variations (ie Fuckwad, Fuckstain, motherfucker, cocksucking motherfucker, fucker, blah blah blah ad nauseum)

Least Fav: All of them that are meant as personal attacks: Cunt, Faggot, N*gger, etc. Learn to play nice in the sandbox, people!

lucky13 said...

just wanted to say that although cunt is not a favorite, it is quite powerful when used against a man...

KimboSue said...

Oh my fucking GAWD, these girls (and one dude I think) are K.I.L.L.I.N.G. ME!!

Favs: Fuck and all variations like fucktard and fucknuttery!!

Non Favs: all synonyms for the female girly business. BLECH

Becky said...

apparently we all think alike. I love "fuck"...I hate "cunt"

I do enjoy saying "cocksucker" in honor of HBO's Deadwood. That word is usually reserved for Sundays and repeated at least a dozen times throughout the day.

Leah said...

I guess we need to pay some sort of homage to whomever invented the word "fuck" as it is clearly a real crowd pleaser. It's my favorite too, so versatile...

you can use it when you are surprised "Well, fuck a duck, I never knew you could use egg whites as lubricant!"
when you are mad, "Well, fuck THAT, I'm not giving that mutherfucking RE one more dime of my hard-fucking-earned money!"
when you are downtrodden, "Well, fuck ME, why is this all so fucking hard?"
when you are confused, "What the fucking fuck is fucking going on here?"
when you are excited, "Fuckin-a, wahoo, I just won a free Slurpee!"
when you are scared, "What the FUCK was THAT crazy noise coming from your scary, gross basement?"

I could go on and on, but you get the point. I also like combinations like ratassbastard, turdburgler, asslick, treehumper, shitforbrains, dickwad, etc.

Least favorite? Cocksuckingwhore.
