On a private message board (for the condo I live in) I recently came across the phrase "F-bomb" as a euphemism for the word "fuck." I've heard it before, but it never fails to amaze me. A bomb is a device that, at best, uses physical destruction for a constructive purpose, and more often is simply destructive. "Fuck" is a word. Anyone incapable of understanding the difference in harm that can be caused by a word - particularly one that is not inherently derogatory of any person or group - and a bomb is too fucking stupid to take part in an adult conversation.

To paraphrase Redd Foxx, why do I use the words "fuck" and "shit?" Because people do. If you've never fucked, shiiit. If you've never shit, fuuuuck.
