  1. My first thought was where they were overhearing their profanities. You’ve got to admit that strolling on a college campus isn’t going to produce the same volumne of curse words that a brisk walk down a NY street would provide or even the local bar and grill.

  2. don’t see ‘bumshite’ or ‘bawbag’ on there.
    anyway, looks like we should all have a little more to boost the ratings.
    fuck is clearly on the decline; we should help it out before it becomes extinct because, let’s face it, without fucking the human race would very soon become disappear. Yeah, more fucking.
