God I love swearing, don’t you?
There’s nothing like getting your tongue round some pithy gutteral ancient Anglo Saxon to relieve stress and tension.
But did you know that swearing was introduced to these shores by the Normans, who invaded in 1492 in attempt to steal back their Danegeld?
Or that a ‘minced oath’ is where you use a flippn’ alternative to the flppin’ curse you were going to flippin’ use and to not mince your words, therefore means you are forthright in expressing your views.
Note: only one of the above is true.
