THURSDAY THIRTEEN #21 . . . 13 CUSS-WORTHY MOMENTS I'm sorry, the footage of the female news anchor dropping the "F" bomb still cracks me up. Check her out HERE, (from Pop Culture Dish, Presented by Malcolm) if you dare. Okay, I'm not saying it's the RIGHT thing to do or the most INTELLIGENT or the most CREATIVE even, but at some point most of us have totally lost it and let fly with a choice word or two or three, or hell, even a whole slew of those bad boys. The following are some of the times, moments and occasions I've deemed particularly cuss-worthy . . .

1) When you stub your pinkie toe

2) When you owe the IRS

3) When you are giving birth, particularly if the baby is over 9 lbs and/or has a head as big as a three month old (**yes, I do know about this from experience**)

4) When some idiot driver does something that nearly causes you or someone else bodily harm or death

5) When you accidentally run upon a bad ass dog or even worse, a whole pack of those jokers

6) When you miss winning the lottery by one number

7) When someone is REALLY hitting your spot (don't act like you don't know what I'm talking about, LOL)

8) When you see another war widow, parent or loved one being passed an American flag

9) When your computer crashes

10) When you're suffering from a monster of a backache or a toothache

11) When someone you despise has outdone him/herself in being a royal pain in the a$$

12) When you can't stop dry heaving

13) When you're standing naked and alone in front of a full length mirror

Well, what the !&@$ are you waiting for? If you have something to add, by all means, be my guest (smile).

Michelle said...

I can relate to most of these. Yup, when I had my daughter I was full of these words. LOL!! Great TT.

These are funny, but true. I had toothaches that hurt so bad that I couldn't cuss (didn't want to let the air in my mouth). Other times I find people are "not worth the spit it takes to cuss them" - The Women of Brewster Place. I have been known to let a few rip though. I actually don't believe that words are bad. Since we assign the meaning to determine what is good and what is not. I was less offended by what the newscaster said and more offended by words like poverty, war, child and other abuses, etc.

Let me get off my soapbox. Happy TT.

Haha. I do not use that word, but if I did, those things would make me do it (and almost did it too). :)

#7 on your list had me cracking up. A couple of things that make me cuss are:

When I set my DVR to record something and it doesn't.

When one of my sports teams isn't performing like they should

Malcolm said...

By the way, thanks for linking to the post I did about the NY anchor who cussed live on the air.

Slender Octopus said...

too funny! And especially if you stub your pinkie on a freezing cold morning..that seems to make it worse...!

Cheerio said...

Whew! Just like how I feel sometimes. Thanks for saying it.

kay said...

Lori said...

I personally would never ever ever miss an opportunity to swear! I even sing the swear words beeped out in popular songs. Fun list!

Happy TT

I tend to use colorful language when I am loading the 5 gallon bottle of water onto the crock. Makes me want to _____ _____ _____ _____ just thinking about it.

If I'm standing naked in front of a full length mirror, I'd just as soon be alone, no matter how many times my dh tells me I'm not fat.

EHT said...

I agree.....those ARE all very cuss worthy moments!

Hootin' Anni said...

B Boys Mom said...

How funny! Yes I do say bad words at these moments. The other day I had a flat tire, lots of bad words that day. Happy TT

Ivette said...

Happy TT! I like your list and I have to say I've only experienced 1, 9 and 10 the others have yet to experience especially number 3. Hope to see you at my 3rd edition about J.R. Ward at Talk About My Favorite Authors blog.

Gypsy Princess said...

It is an excellent list!

Chris said...

Great list Lori. I seem to do a lot of cussing in the car. Happy TT

yertle said...

Great idea. What came to mind for me was when the handle on your grocery bag breaks and all of your stuff goes flying.

bettye griffin said...

Loved your list, Lori! I do wish someone would spill why Sue Simmons would speak to a colleague that way in the first place.
