This is the silliest damn thing I’ve heard in a long damn while.


The conservative group One Million Moms is accusing Burger King of “crossing the line” over an Impossible Whopper commercial that uses the “D-word.”


😱


“The language in the commercial is offensive, and it’s sad that this once family restaurant has made yet another deliberate decision to produce a controversial advertisement instead of a wholesome one.”

www.foxnews.com...

I can understand Gordon Ramsay getting bleeped every third word. Because the intent is aggressive insulting and demeaning.

But I think they lost their collective minds promoting damn to the list of seven damn words you can’t say on the damn damnTV. ( George carlin)

Does helicopter parenting now extend to thousands of commercials aired every damn day ?

After reading their positions. The whole damnorganization reminds me more of the Westborough Baptist church. ( they protested against jingle bells)

So I’ve got something to say to 1 million moms.

Mind your own damn business.

By the time kids reached 12 years old they’ve heard every damn cuss word there is and the list and “damn”Isn’t on the list of priorities.


I hope I made my position pretty DAMN clear.

It doesn’t end there. I went to pick up my favorite Chili Mix, which has always been known as Damn Good Chili Mix, and to my dismay, it had changed the name to Darn Good Chili Mix.

I was so enraged I killed a cow right there in the parking lot, dug a fire pit in the asphalt, and cooked my chili caveman style while screaming at passerby’s how damn good it was.

Damn Minnesotans ruining everything.

This is precisely why the perpetually-offended PC loons will never socially engineer their utopia. They must find something, anything, to complain about.

It's ridiculous.

But I'm willing to bet it's being blown out of proportion by the media, if I had to guess it's one uppity housewife with too much time on her hands.

The whole Janet Jackson super bowl boob thing, the FCC only received like 7 actual complaints.

One Million Moms? LOL More like three old busybodies
bored out of their minds.
Wasn't there a group called the" American Catholic Society" or
close to it and it was a group of one? I remember him causing
a stink over petty things as well.
The real problem here is people caving into such ridiculous demands.
I hope BK tells them to hit the road.

HA ha I was tardy

From the parental perspective, the part I hate is having to navigate a world where you go out in public with your child and every other group you pass or are seated next to in a public space is holding forth loudly with all manner of expletives punctuating every third or fourth word.

Even family movies have adult content to them.

Your kids go to school and have mandatory lessons on things they may not be personally ready to explore.

The world, for all we're told kids should be allowed to be kids, seems determined to treat them like mini-adults as it suits our purposes and generally in instances where innocence is at stake.

In the grand scheme of things, this is small potatoes, but I won't pretend I don't understand their motivations.

Reminds me of the 1970's when swear words could not be used on TV.

Wholesome and Burger king cannot be used in the same sentence or paragraph. That is a sin. Whirdybirds and Burger King are acceptable, maybe not proper but at least it is not an outright deception like Wholesome whoppers are.

That and trying to make everyone hate Christians. I mean, really, everyone should be able to hear the word damn every other word because no one knew how precious it was before. It should be a right more precious than the vote.

Because there are no other words in English equal to the task.

Damn is one of the best words in the English language.

When I see a car crash I usually say, "Damn!". An oh no if you will.
If I see a new born baby. I think Damn! I hope it's not mine.
When I eat a good meal, I think Damn! That was good.

It can be used in a plethora of damn topics.

It's always interested me how those words we are not supposed to say always morph into words that are acceptable.

Damn becomes darn becomes durn becomes dog gone becomes dawg becomes dang and rama lama ding dong.
And ''God'' becomes Gawd becomes golly and gosh and good grief and down the line.

I heard once that the English word blimey came from ''ga blimey which came from God blind me.

And there is one list that goes on forever. Frick and frack and friggin and fudge and finklestein and freek fuke and more, yet everyone knows what it means.

Not nearly as versatile as the "F" word though! Now that word has got some SERIOUS legs on it!

It can be used as a verb.
It can be used as a noun.
It can be used as an adverb.
It can be used as adjective.
It can be used as a dangling participle.
It can be used as a dangling...err, well, you get the idea.
It can be used literally.

It can be used to describe joy.
It can be used to describe pain.
It can be used in frustration.
It can be used as a question.
It can be used in every other word in a sentence, just because.
It can be used to describe what you're going to do to something.
It can be used multiple times in one sentence and still make sense.
It can used to describe a thing.
It can be used as a prefix or affix to any other curse word.
It can have every tense in the English language.
It can be used as a title.
It can be amplified with the word "Mutha'"
It can be capitalized and used to up the shock factor with "MOTHER"
It can be used as an exclamation with no further words required.
It's a complete sentence in, and of, itself.
It sounds good paired with the word "actual"

AND, it is the absolute best word in the whole entire World to use when you mash your thumb with a cleated framing hammer!!

WTF other word has that versatility?

I suppose the way to look at it is that the act of making a curse is less the problem than the word one chooses to use when you make that exclamation.
