Everyone likes to swear! Don’t even f*cking try to tell me you don’t 😀 Swear words are very interesting little words that often come from very specific places in life, no matter the language or culture. Most swear words originate as words relating to animals, bodily excretions or family members.
Yes, they are just words, but they are words that are almost like weapons and are used to insult and hurt other people. So we have given these words power. Over time the effectiveness of swear words is worn down and others come to replace them. Humbug used to be a very powerful swear word but it has lessened over time. But if you wish to use these words, make sure to use them responsibly 🙂
