Bastards fuck up your shit, you gotta do something, right?

My Gracious Host, through his Neology Blog, has alerted YHB to the CurseBird, a realtime feed of people swearing on Twitter. It’s kind of hypnotic. Plus I’ve learned a bunch of new abbreviations.

But in all seriousness, I have never come closer to actually starting to posting on Twitter. Bastard is only at 0.67%? Fuck the heck? I would totally just post Bastards! Bastards! Bastards! until I got it up over 1%, anyway, and then make sure to post something with the word bastard in it at least twice a day, if I had to talk about eleventh century English history to do it. And I’d retweet every bastard who used the word bastard, just to double the score.

I mean, that is just a travesty. Why can’t people swear properly any more?

Tolerabimus quod tolerare debemus,


Hey, I can use the same comment as to your previous post:

Fuck you, clown!

Time for my favorite quote (from Paul Gallico):

"No one can be as calculatedly rude as the British, which amazes Americans, who do not understand studied insult and can only offer abuse as a substitute."

Completely unrelated to this topic, but would it be possible to converse with you about "libraries" and "working in libraries" in general? I have questions. Email communication would be fine. Let me know if you are available.

irilyth—no, no, you are screwing up the ratio!

no, no, you are screwing up the ratio, you bastard!

There, fixed it.

Oh, and thank you for picking up the very pretty tart, irilyth.

Take it outside, you two. This is a high-class joint, not some cheap place for picking up tarts.


Also, bastard.
