The creative use of profanity: Overuse of curse words is annoying

The creative use of profanity beats frequency

Hank Moody once told his teenage daughter something to the effect of ‘I encourage the creative use of profanity.’ And he’s right. There is little more effective, humorous, and/or appropriate than a well-placed expletive.

Referring to George Carlin’s 7 dirty words, I don’t really find any of them offensive in and of themselves. But I sure do find their overuse annoying.
