Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

3 + 4 is a big no-no.

Congeal. And a plethora of other gross words that I just don't like but aren't appropriate to share.

Using offensive language is an art form in our house, but you must use it correctly and pronounce it properly.

When my kids were toddlers, stupid the THE bad word in our house. For years, until they started school they thought it was worse than the F word. So, when they were maddest, it was their go to word. Saved us some embarrassment in public.

My mother-in-law used to yell "shut up" at her children all the time. So my wife doesn't allow those words to be said.

I intend to instill the idea in her head that words are just symbols for ideas and it is the idea that is bad not the word.

but right now . . dummy, it's what I call the dog

they can say pretty much whatever (as long as it's not excessive) AND as long as they don't take that language outside the house.

I have a disabled daughter so the no-no words are the ones that demean the disabled. no 'R' words.

"Whatever"
If my daughter says that, my wife starts yelling about wire hangers and red headed step children.

This is what we've done with ours. They seem to have taken it to heart, and actually seem to be better at censoring themselves than I am for myself.

Our youngest (dog - Noodles) dislikes the F word. He's empathetic and will try to snuggle up to you because he knows (thinks?) somethings wrong when he hears it.

When my son was in first grade, he told me that one of the kids at school used the "s word" that day. A little prodding revealed that my son was under the impression that "stupid" was the "s word".

Awwww! If I had a bad argument with my girlfriend, I'd wake up & go to put on my boots & the laces would fall off in pieces. It was one of my bunnies, Mortimer (he was so protective of her, they bonded so closely), and he'd do it every time we had fought!!!

Girlfriend's still here, lil bunnies are in heaven now, having fun, waiting till we're all together again some day. "I still love you Mortimer & Behemoth! Always will, kids." =)

it's cute when kids swear.

I especially like the look that christian-like people give when my kid swears in public.

My children are the best kind of kids, the are dogs. You can't say the word granddaddy because then they start looking for him thinking they are getting to go on an overnight. My parents take their role as four legged grandparents very seriously.

We weren't allowed to say "hate" in my house growing up. If I disliked something I was not allowed to say that I hated it.
