When I was little I understood that there were certain secret words that you were never ever supposed to say, & that some of them are worse than others-- so even after I had learned all of the actual swears, I figured there must be some left that I had never heard, that were even worse, that I would learn when I got older. I was disappointed when I found out that fuck and shit and so forth are all there is. Sometimes I still hope that there really are more swears for me to learn, but you're not allowed to learn them until you're 40 years old (like the Kabbalah)!

When I was in primary school, we used to do this little rhyme where we said, "Silence in the courtyard, silence in the street, the biggest twit in England is just about to speak - starting from now." One time I said this little rhyme, but instead of saying 'twit' I said 'twat' because I thought they meant the same thing and were equally rude. Twit isn't a very rude word, so I assumed that twat wasn't either. So the little boy, Tim, who had spoken and been crowned the biggest twat in England, by me, went mooching to the teacher and went "She said I was the biggest twat." and I got severely told off. *blush*

When I was little my mom told me that if you said the "f word" a curse would be put on you. She also told me that when people say the "f word" it means that whoever you say it to, you want to put a curse on them. Yeah, weird... However, I was scared of saying the "f word", but when I was eleven everyone was saying it and nobody died, so I figured it was a lie.

When my brother and I were younger my mother used to say "sugar!" instead of shit as she didn't want us kids to learn to swear. Consequently my brother thought that all such words were swear words and called me a "stupid cocoa" for years after.

I used to say "Shut up the hull" instead of "Shut up the h***," according to my mom.

Once when I was 4, I misunderstood the word for shucking corn and went around the neighborhood yelling for my brothers to come home and f---the corn, much to my mother's embarassment.

When I was a kid (actually, until about two years ago), my dad, my brother and I used to go skiing together almost every weekend. Well, on one of these outings, we were at the top of the hill, trying to decide which run to go down, and we noticed that one of the runs was called "FLICKER," written exactly like that, in all capital letters, except the "L" and the "I" were a little too close together, so my brother's eyes lit up as he pointed to it and said "Hey Emily, look what that hill's called!!!" My dad almost killed himself laughing. It was even funnier because, at this particular ski place (which catered to families), there were signs all over the place that said "No foul language," with a big red X through a picture of a tough-looking guy with cartoon expletives coming out of his mouth. So, my brother couldn't understand for the life of him why the people at the ski hill would break their own rule by giving one of the runs such a "vulgar" name, lol.

When me and my brother were little our parents TRY they're best NOT to swear infrount of us cause you know how kids are they'll repeat everything you say so instead of swearing they would spell out the swearing word say for instances if they wanted to say DAMN they would say D A M N!!!! And me and my brother would be so confused til we started to learn to read and spell cause then when our parents would spell out a swearing word we would say "DAD DON'T YOU MEAN SHIT INSTEAD OF S H I T"?

Until I was seven or eight, I thought the word "shit" was spelled and pronounced like "shet".

One day, I was watching "Double Dare" (a kids' game show in the U.S.), and the host, Marc Summers, was talking to a contestant about a certain pet that she owned.

"Does it shed all over the place?" he asked.

Well, you can imagine what I thought he said. I was appalled that Marc Summers would use such language and confused as to why he didn't get in trouble for it.

Ever since he was in preschool, my youngest brother's favorite movie has always been "The Princess Bride"; he used to watch it constantly. At one point toward the end of the movie, a good guy sneers at a bad guy, "I want my father back, you son of a b****." Luckily, we didn't have to be concerned about my brother learning that naughty word: when he was about nine, we heard him recite the line as, "I want my father back, Hassanavabidge." He thought the bad guy's name was Hassanavabidge.

my sisters and i invented an imagination game called the alley cat restaurant, some cross between a disney movie and a soap opera. my youngest sister, who always had to be the boy, played thomas o'malley (a la aristocats). there was some pretended romantic triangle and i said, "Tom doesn't love you. he's after one prime pussy." my mom came running in to the room screaming, "what did you say??" and i started yelling "pussy cat! pussy cat!" i didnt really know what i had said, i wa only about 9, but i got the fact that it wasnt something my mom wanted to hear coming out of my mouth.

When I was 15 years old, I mention the word "pussy" and there was teenage women accusing me of saying a bad word then I was put to detention for the whole day. Because I thought that "pussy" meant cat, I first heard that word from a James Bond movie, Goldfinger and Octopussy.

when my brother and i were in a public place with our mother and actually getting along, to irritate her we would each say one syllable of a bad word and we thought we were so tough... for example:
ME: Sh
BRO: -it

and we would get faster and faster untill our mom told us she was getting a headache. she never really yelled at us for what we're doing. She yells at me now when i say 'damn' and i'm 22.

When I was 8 or 9 I was walking through the ravine with my friend who was a year older than me. Some boys were giving us a hard time, so she yelled to them, "Stop it you sonofabitch!" and clapped her hand over her mouth. I asked her what that meant, and she said, "It means son of the devil...I think." So when I got home, my Dad was entertaining an old friend of his from the Navy and I walked in and said, "Dad, what's a sonofabitch?" and he nearly flew across the table to strangle me, but his friend pulled him back, laughing, and told him to relax. He didn't tell me, but I knew it had nothing to do with a devil!
