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.
George Carlin's seven plus stupid, shut up and hard candy.
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.
the major ones will get in a bit of trouble stupid is an offense that will get you talked to and soap if repeated, most depends on how they're being used
Wooter to blame for sellout: SumDuud
Sellout time: 8:11:25 AM Central Time
I have a disabled daughter so the no-no words are the ones that demean the disabled. no 'R' words.
If my daughter says that, my wife starts yelling about wire hangers and red headed step children.
A scary thing for a child to say...
No. That's the one that gets soap in the mouth.

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".

Yup, yup. & no racical, ethnic, gender, sexuality or religious based attacks allowed. So curse yer butt off here as long as you respect equality.
P.S. Bless her lil heart, hugs!!

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." =)
Cocksucker. My daughter first used it when she was 7. It is her favorite word she is 24 now.
hard candy....it is absolutely forbiden. I work with special needs individuals and my family knows better than to throw this word around.

Interesting "hard candy" shows up as "hard candy"??
So far nothing is off limits in this house.
it's cute when kids swear.
I especially like the look that christian-like people give when my kid swears in public.
No one is allowed to mention "Sarah Palin"
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.
"But there is no more beer daddy"
Republican is really the only no no word in our home
