Huh? For those of you without a linguistics degree or too lazy to look it up that's merely the fear of the number 13. As tomorrow is Friday the 13. Hey didn't we just have one of those the other month? Yep and we've got one more again in November. Am I one of those fearful 13 fraddycats? No. I have a brother who was born on Friday the 13th in hospital room 1313 and according to mom she had 13 cents in her purse at the time.
The other week was no cussing week in LA county. Profanity has become strange of late. I've always considered profanity to be like hot spices of language. A little bit goes a long way. Too much and the "dish" gets ruined. Also there has been so many loopholes to saying the exact same things. Let's take Carlins seven dirty words as an example.
Sh** = poop,ka ka,doody,dump,defication and feces
Pi** = urinate,tinkle,pee,water
F*** = fornicate,intercourse,ball (not to forget)friggin,bloody and flaming
C*** = vagina,hole,hoo hoo,taco
Coc****** Can't think of a good one for that it seems to be fading from the language.
Mother****** = Not much there either unless you'd say mom pleaser. I'm you're Dad son that's my job I'm a MF. Unless of course you're a giggilo or adulterer.
T*** = bossums,rack,jugs, balloons
Then there's the little profanities that are loosing their meaning and punch because they've been over used. Son of a bitch is the male offspring of a female dog. Hey wouldn't that be a male puppy? How cute. Hell and damn was one mom used and I'd always reply "I don't know the woman".
I wonder why A-hole didn't make the list? That's a fairly derrogatory expression. An ass a small donkey type animal. Hey I may be an ass but don't they work for a living? I don't see penus on the list either. Now how can you have vagina and not penus? That's discrimination I tell you.
There's much more but that seems to be relegated to the far recesses of this old brain and best left there.
Keep your drums upright people.
