“Fuck!” – The Late George Carlin

There’s this Skype group that is constantly open, with various users from The Number Of The Blog as well as Tre Watson, Reign In Blonde’s Angela Glassowski, and yours truly. On Monday, Grover, Angela, Quiggs, and I were talking when Grover had the brilliant idea of creating a holiday. What unfolded in the conversation set the ball in motion, and International Day Of Profanity was born.

Grover summed it up as such:

And so, October 4th (we chose October because it has a bunch of shitty holidays, plus Halloween, and we chose the fourth because all the best swear words have four letters) is now our planned National Fucking Profanity Day! Think of it as an exercise of Freedom of Speech… as is so eloquently stated by the late, great Lenny Bruce, swear words are just words that are profane because it’s considered taboo to use them. This is your chance to exercise your right!

The only stipulation that I can make here is that, when you do use these profanities on National Fucking Profanity Day, use them in a cheerful and inoffensive manner. For example: “Have a great fucking day!” “Fuck me, these goddamn bagels are the shit!” “That is a fabulous fucking sweater!”

So, we have approximately two months to spread the word as much as possible! Post this on Facebook, spread the word on Twitter, tell your friends, post fliers in your local grocery store and church… you get the idea!

Tell your friends and spread the word. October 4th is International Fucking Day Of Profanity!
