What The Cuss?!?

There’s an age-old belief that people who curse are lazy and unintelligent. But after you slam your fingers in the car door, it’s not exactly easy to say, “Well, that was quite the painful experience. I do believe I have brought great harm upon my hand.” We see where Mark Twain was coming from when he said, “Under certain circumstances, profanity provides a relief denied even to prayer.”

Still, cursing around the wrong people will likely get you in trouble. Next time you feel the urge to drop an F-bomb, consider one of these PG replacement options.
