What the f**k?

Check out tonight’s Inside Out England on BBC iPlayer later.

How many people must have watched the programme through before broadcast without noticing the ‘f’ word, clear as day, five minutes in?

Lesson One: If sampling Fatboy Slim songs, don’t use this one. (They used the first five seconds of it.)

  6. Define swearing.
    If someone calls you a “poo-head” they’re just calling you a shit-head with a 5 year old’s vocabulary.
    Intent is a large proportion of it.

    I find that particularly unpleasant. When i was at the ticket barrier at the station the other day trying to get through as quickly as I could because we’d cut it so fine a man came dashing up beside me and said “Is that the Bristol train about to pull out?” I said “Yes” and he said “Oh shit.” Delightful.

    I don’t find swearing to be particularly offensive. Everyone used them at school and I kind of got desensitised to them. Anyway, I never understood why the “S” word (self-censored because I’m not sure if the university allows swearing) is more offensive than using the proper term, faeces.
