Re: Cursing in Novels



Wow, I didn’t know about the F bomb in Harry Potter! I haven’t made it that far in the series.

And I can curse with the best of them (when I see fit), but at the risk of sounding like an old lady it p*sses me off (I’m being ironic) when scripts use swear words for want of a more creative vocabulary or for lack of humor. I see comedians do it ALL the time. Instead of a joke or a good come back, they use a few hundred curse words. It doesn’t work for me.

Bridesmaids would have been even funnier IMHO, great example!
