    Interesting post Nanette! Words are powerful and I have found that it’s best to think before I speak. Using profanity for shock value or to hurt others is never appropriate in my world. Certainly profanity has no place in professional communication.

    I love the list of clever comebacks! Funny, with all the Shakespeare stuff going on – I saw a list of put downs that were great! Nancy is correct, words are powerful. I’m not easily offended either, and there are some blogs I follow where the profanity sprinkled in makes sense (they tend to be hippy-dippy bloggers), but when it is used for shock value – it just doesn’t work.

    Cute. I like #8. It’s fun when someone has the wit to reply back without missing a beat!

    Yes, there are more clever ways to dress up English than to swear. I find stand-up comedy to be the worst. However, there is a cute little song from Lily Allen that I just love. It’s a swear word, but she sings it so cutely that it is funny.

    Oh yes, Amy. There are so many Churchill banters recorded that show his quick-on-his-feet wit. Agreed, stand up comedy has gotten a bit out of hand but there are some (Steve Martin come to mind) who are hilarious without vulgarity or profanity.

      I never realized that Steve Martin did not swear in his comedy sets. That is pretty cool!

    I’ve always been a fan of clever. You’ve gathered some good insults/comebacks, and I tend to lean towards those gems by Shakespeare and Wilde. I’ve recently been reading a blog that offers a daily insult culled from a Shakespeare generator, along with a daily surrealistic compliment culled from a generator. A double dose of fun.

    Maybe it’s due to a lack of sense of humor on my part but I don’t find insults or sarcasm clever and I usually unsubscribe from newsletters that use profanity. I send them love knowing that I just happen to not be their ‘perfect’ customer, and that’s okay.

      Certainly wasn’t trying to offend anyone here, Elda – quite the opposite. I do think there’s a place for clever comebacks. Agreed, you need to embrace what feels right. That’s kind of you to leave with love.
