What about the other football team with a swearword in its name?


Manchester Fucking United!

grin Manatee.

Scunthorpe is asterisked out by editing software and becomes S****horpe on a number of the football forums I visit. I've often had a little laugh to myself upon reflecting that members of Mumsnet can say someone's being a cunt while discussing nappies but no-one on the Bristol City forums can write of hooliganism at Scunthorpe!

I used to be on You And Your Wedding; Weightwatchers became Weigh***chers hmm

Someone once told me that when the local government in Scunthorpe installed new software to check for profanities, they were puzzled for several days about why they could no longer send and receive e-mail.
