My younger sister saw South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut when she was 4 years old. As most of you know, that movie was VERY, VERY profane. Being only four and believing that animated movies were kid movies, she must of thought all the swear words they said in that movie weren't really bad. So...you can see what happened. Oh God, you should of seen my mom when she caught her singing "Uncle F***er".

When my brother was little, he used to get his sounds mixed up (specifically "sma" and "fa"). On a visit with a Doctor, he decided to have a tantrum in the very busy waiting room. Mum gave him a stern talking to and the threat of a smack at which point he dramatically sheilded himself and, much to the horror of the other paitients (especially my mother), cried out "Don't fuck me, Mummy! Don't fuck me!"

I was about 6 and my mum and I were on our way home from the movies. Well, it was pretty late, and as we passed a store, I saw a sign in the window that read "Store Hours..." I read it aloud "Store WHORES". Well, that's what I thought it was. Needless to say, my mum made me promise never to repeat it again

When I was about 5, I was in the car with my mum and I told her that I knew the "F" word. Worried, she took a deep breath and said "What is it?!?" I proudly replied "Fat!"

I was always the type of kid to want to show everyone what I knew. I was about 6 and I was talking to my mom and she called me one of those pet names that was still kind of insulting like "rump roast", so I thinking that I would make a come back would call her a w(hore).....thinking it was another way to say horse. OPPS! My bad.

From early childhood to about the age of 7 i really used to beleve that the word "woman" was a bad word. This is because the only time I heard anyone say it was when my father would sigh "I JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND THIS WOMAN!!!!" I felt that it was a bad thing to say about a girl.

I used to always believe that the word "garbage" was a curse. To me, the first syllable (gar) was okay to say but -bage was the curse part. I thought it was pronounced gar-Bitch. I know, kinda dumb.

When I was in third grade, my friend's older sister convinced me that when some one said 'BS' it meant ' boloney sandwich'.

My parents were huge hypocrites growing up. We kids were told profusely not to swear and do other things they called "ungodly". However, we learned quite a few curse words from Dad. When my brother was a teenager, one day he remarked about something or other: "that sucks." Well, my parents got all over him for it, and I couldn't understand why. I had never heard the expression: "that sucks", and i thought my brother had been mumbling about socks. I thought my parents had misheard him, thinking he'd said the word "fuck", and i tried to stand up for him, telling my parents that he'd only been talking about his socks!

When I was little I'd hear my dad swearing on the phone but I thought it was some cool grown-up language he'd made up. There was this one word that sounded the coolest and I thought it was a driving direction or something. So one day I was in the car with my mom and I asked her which way it meant. She looked at me wide-eyed and asked me where I learnt it.

when i was in 5th grade i was in catholic school. well we were allowed to bring toys to school, so this little 1st grader had these little "bionicle" robot things, and he was making them fight, w/ all the sound effects and everything. i rolled my eyes and said "bionicles are dumb" so this kid, he gasps and his eyes get real big as if i had just totally cussed him out. then he gets all teary eyed and runs to the teacher screamed (rather loudly) SHE SAID THE D WORD! lol ;)

i was on the school bus as a 3rd grader. a couple of 5th graders were giving each other the middle finger and i asked what it meant. Being 5th graders, they told me it meant "i love u". this caused complications with my dad....

When I was a little kid I was told by some religious person that swearing would make God put a curse on you, but if you were a child, God would forgive you, but when you got older and sweared, God would give you consequences. I believed then that if you cursed when you were over the age of ten, God would electricute you and you would die on the spot. :O However, if you were nine and under, he'd forgive you, but you'd be warned and watched for a long time.

My boyfriend's great aunt told me a story about when he was a little boy. He was raised Catholic, and one day he went to Mass. When he got back, somebody asked him how he liked church, and he said that it was okay except for the fact that they made him cuss. Mystified, he was asked what he meant, and he replied, "They kept making me say, "Hell, Mary!" (Hail Mary)
