What's wrong with 'bloody' ffs?

Blardy sound all wrong and annoying in my head.

I MN at work and worry about swear words being picked up by our IT bods <paranoid> so I always try not-quite-sweary versions

<on my lunchbreak if you IT bods are watching me!>

how do you feel about farking?

ooojimaflip Tue 03-Nov-09 13:00:37

I assume it's a reference to

Fruitbatlings Tue 03-Nov-09 13:01:50

ooh, no, what's that? Or should I stay well clear? hmm

If your gonna be mealy mouthed, then the american versions at least seem like proper words. "The freaking thing is busted all to heck".

Blardy and fark sound like you've got a speech impediment.

ooojimaflip Tue 03-Nov-09 13:04:04

It's no 4chan /b/ so don't worry.

ooojimaflip Tue 03-Nov-09 13:05:08

And bloody really ISN'T a swear word.

"The freaking thing is busted all to heck"

I wish people spoke like that on a regular basis. Life would be so entertaining!

Fruitbatlings Tue 03-Nov-09 13:06:39

I'd rather see the proper words tbh, not too sure about "freaking"
What about fakking? But you'd have to be from saaaf landon

I like 'feck' though - I humbly refer you all to

I agree OP. This is probably the thing that annoys me most about Mumsnet. Don't mind 'fecking' so much because it makes me think of Father Ted.

Was reading 'The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner' last night and he keeps saying 'bogger' instead of 'bugger'. But that was 40 years ago....

ooojimaflip Tue 03-Nov-09 13:10:32

'feck' is a word in it's own right though.

Bugger is definitely OK to use - its in the James Herriot vet books. Yorkshire idiomatic term, now't wrong wi' it.

MadreInglese Tue 03-Nov-09 13:48:46

I prefer fooking to farking tbh

ooojimaflip Tue 03-Nov-09 13:52:54

I prefer fucking. Just in general.

YABU. There is no such word.

ooojimaflip Tue 03-Nov-09 14:14:52

Darn is another of those rather endearing american euphamisms. I rather like dash. "Dash it all Celia, it's all do frightfully, frightfully terrible." But I think it would get annoying if used too much. Blinkin' nora sounds like comedy cockney, so would be fine in that context.

ooojimaflip Tue 03-Nov-09 14:15:36

I know someone who uses 'Hells Teeth!' in normal converstion. With no hint of irony.

Pedant alert!

it's Alan Sillitoe and he says "bogger" because it's a genuine Nottingham term. It's not quite as strong as bugger and has more ways to use it.


ps: blardy and farking grate on my teeth, too!

sorry, probably shoudl have included that he's from Nottingham andthat's why he would use a Nottingham term!
