The obvious topic today would be one on the subject of Mothers, but last week I promised I'd cover something else. And what was that? Swear words. Or rather variations of swear words. It can be as simple as saying "shoot" or "shucks" when what we really mean is slang for defecating.
How many of you go around calling your buddy who's drunk, fecal-faced? Or that person with really odious breath, fecal breathe?
This subject came up in relation to me using the phrase "fuck-a-duck". It's a phrase I use to soften just saying "fuck". I'm told when I'm drugged up on morphine when I have had a really nasty kidney-stone causing my pains levels to punch through the morphine I resort to saying "fuck-a-duck". I may say it really fast repetitively three to four times or maybe just once slowly and exaggerated. All while trying to breathe as tho' I'm giving birth.
Another one I've used is "sunny beach!", which I'm sure you've noticed is a G-rated version of sonuvabitch. And how many times have you said "fudge!" because you were trying to soften your swearing due to the people who surrounded you?
There are tons more I could list but I want to hear some of yours. Maybe it's one you think only you use. You may be surprised when someone else admits to using it too. Maybe you have a word that's a regional phrase or maybe an ethnic variation. If you want to have fun wasting some time, try checking out words on Urban Dictionary.
Meanwhile let's spread the mojo and start your swearing!
On with the games!!
Mojo Friday Guidelines
Disclaimer; Kinda like the Pirates Code, they're just guidelines, meant for fun. They aren't hard and fast rules.
1) If you comment you have to recommend all comments. (in order to receive mojo you have to give mojo. It's only good mojo manners.)
2) Everything you say may be taken as a joke (so if you ask a question, expect a silly answer)
3) You must recommend the diary (and pimp it unapologetically)
4) You don't have to comment to recommend.
5) You can't steal my idea (right, like that ain't goin' to happen. It has in numerous forms, I'm flattered!)
6) Mojo mojo mojo mojo, mojo mojo mojo.
7) TexDem (that's me) is not bound by the guidelines. Neither are you
Mojo Friday Goals
Disclaimer; These are mostly here for nostalgia, the site has changed so much and the servers have been upgraded to the point I don't think we could fuck with the site with 1000 people participating. 2007 it ain't.
A. At least 300 different commenters and 1000 comments by 1:30 PM EST and 1500 by 5:00 PM EST Friday Night that it's posted.
B. 100 recommends for each comment, at least.
C. Stay on Recommend List at least five hours (this requires some strategic planning by you guys, refer to guideline #3)
D. At least 200 diary recommends. 300 would be better, spread the word.
E. And always, fun fun fun.
G. (New) Have at least 30 kossacks over 90% participation (see here for some tips).
H. Overload the servers with recommends, not to mention dominate Top Comments Mojo list. (we do tend to mess with the site with all of our recommends at one time)(also, to dominate the Top Comments Top Mojo we need at least 50 comments with over 200 recommends, see guideline B)
I. That's enough for now. (Have a suggestion? Post it.)
