Everytime I have a joke or something with the "F" word on here I always kind of cringe when I think of Dr John reading it. And Im sure some of you may think...she professes to be a Christian but she uses the F word. So I am going to tell you my theory of the famous F word.
There are times it offends me....when I hear young kids walking down the street using it, when I hear them rappers singing it in a song, and when people use it to just be using it.
I would rather hear the f word than to hear someone take Gods name in vain. The f word is not a sin, its just a nasty word that can take the smile right off of someones face if you use it at the right time. Some people almost turn white when they hear it. But it is just initials......for the use of carnal knowledge> F.U.C.K. ( I may not have the meaning exactly correct but its close enough).When I was going to high school I dont ever remember using that word or hearing my parents use it. But today it seems to be a much used word. And I am as guilty as the next one. Sometimes it seems to make a joke halarious to me.
I use to have an elderly woman for a neighbor..she was the town librarian. When I moved in next door to her we became friends and we used to talk out back over the fence. The first time she said the f word I about fell over! And then I just cracked up!!! She made me laugh so many times! I have very fond memories of her. She has since passed away.
If I had ever said the f word in front of my Father I know I would have got slapped in the mouth! He would never tolerate that! Times have changed so much havent they? I do think you have to have a little class when using the f bomb. Over using it is just plain trashy. Its a word for special occasions...to shock, mostly. People look at you and they think you are all prim and proper and then you let it fly!!!! Just once! Then 9 times out of 10 they will crack up. Of course there are always those who cant take a joke.And to them I say.."pffft".
I am not justifying the word.....but to me....its just a word. I apologize if I offend anyone with it.....some jokes are just better with it in them. Dr John seems to be a pretty good sport who rolls with the punches......and I would never offend him on purpose. I think he knows that.
What I would really like to know is how do you feel about the use of the f bomb? Is it just a word to you??? or does it totally disgust you?
