WHY THE @##K WOULD YOU STOP +##**^G SWEARING?

12 Apr

AUSTRALIANS ARE NOT ALONE IN THEIR LOVE OF SWEARING, BUT WE ARE, AND HAVE LONG BEEN WORLD CHAMPION SWEARERS.

ONCE UPON A TIME, THE WORD “BLOODY” WAS THE GREAT AUSTRALIAN ADJECTIVE, BUT WE’VE MOVED ON SINCE THEN TO STRONGER OATHS & CURSES THAT ADD EMPHASIS AND COLOUR TO OUR CONVERSATIONS, OUR JOKES, OUR LIVES. AND THERE’S A GENUINE SPIRIT OF INVENTION DRIVING NEW FORMS OF, AND USES FOR, OUR FAVOURITE OLD ANGLO-SAXON SWEAR WORDS.

NOT EVERYONE APPROVES, BUT IN THE RIGHT CONTEXT, A BIT OF SWEARING IS USUALLY HARMLESS. SO WHY WOULD YOU STOP SWEARING? COULD YOU STOP?

A CHANCE TO GIVE UP THE F WORD, AND ALL ITS CUSSIN’ COUSINS, PRESENTS ITSELF THIS MAY. IT’S CALLED SWEARSTOP. YOU STOP YOUR POTTY-TALK FOR A WEEK IN MAY TO RAISE FUNDS FOR THE SCHIZOPHRENIA RESEARCH INSTITUTE, AND TO PROMOTE UNDERSTANDING OF A FRIGHTENING MEDICAL CONDITION.

DEE MADIGAN WORKS IN THE ADVERTISING GAME, SHE’S A REGULAR ON ABC-TV’S BRILLIANT THE GRUEN TRANSFER, AND SHE’S A DEDICATED SWEARER. DEE’S GONNA GIVE IT UP IN MAY. CLICK THE AUDIO PLAYER TO HEAR WHY SHE’S TAKING THE #&??#@$^%^ PLUNGE.

     

SWEARSTOP RUNS DURING SCHIZOPHRENIA AWARENESS WEEK IN MAY. MORE INFO OR SIGN UP TO STOP EFFING SWEARING AT www.swearstop.com.au

    If I stop swearing this week, what with my 95 year old mother, depression and a crook back, I’D be a CANDIDATE for Schizophrenia
