I just came across this on Discovery Magazine: Why Do People Swear?
Joe Biden, while talking to President Obama after the health care vote, dropped the F-bomb, and it seems the mic was still on. it was supposed to be for the president’s ears only, as in private. whoops…
now everyone is abuzz about saying f**k. mind you, this has created great dialogue about the one thing we all have in common – we all curse. this is normal, common vocalbulary. you read it, you hear it, and you see it.
my thoughts on Mr.Biden dropping the F-bomb, no big f***ing deal.
sometimes saying f**k is just the right word, nothing else will do.
come on, do you think the VP is the first person in history to drop the F-bomb?
