They think damn is an offensive word? Bahaha!

What I don't get is when anyone complains about the dumbest thing...why the hell are those things changed? Why play into the madness?

There’s a endless amount material to ridicule for laughs.

Instead of saying god damnit I say god bless it.

Stub my toe? "God blessssss it!"
Do something embarrassing? "Well, god bless."

Now, I reminded of a book I had to read in school. It was about some nibke girk named Catherine or simething similar, and whoever was the governing person had decided that regular curse words weren't allowed and everything had to do with god's body part.

So, there were phrases such as god's foot, and god's elbow.

a reply to: Fallingdown When Gone with the Wind first aired on TV in the early 60s? the talk was of Rhett Butlers final line "Frankly my dear I don't give a damn" Must have caused a stir in 1939.

The commercial I can't stand is the Liberty Mutual Insurance commercials. "Only pay for what you need" pitch line is moronic. That's no different than any other insurance company on the market. Stupid commercials. Limu-Imu. BS

If the damn word is in the Bible it is good enough for me, lol. I guess these ladies don’t read it much.

ETA: The Kings James Bible uses the word "damn" in the New Testament 453 times. Oh noes!

No, I wasn't talking about you. I was just commenting on how crazy it is today with everyone being offended by the slightest little things. I say a lot worse than damn. LOL

Do it the Southern way: "Bless your heart!"

Translation: "Yer a blitherin' idiot."

Guy up here north said that to me a few days ago I stared at him coldly and said, "I know what that means!" I lived long enough in the South that I can pass all those "southern slang" tests with 100%. I used to could, anyway.

I'm from the south. Tennessee to be specific. Here the saying "Bless his/her heart" can be used in that manner, but it can also mean that you actually feel badly for that person.

Say for instance someone gets cheated on or ends up on the bad side ofna breakup one could say it sincerely. Just deoends on if you like the person or not I suppose.

But yeah, most people who aren't from the south hear the phrase and only use it in the negative manner.

Haha, my buddy was told "Bless your heart" by a woman he complained to about something she did (don't recall what it was), and his reply was, "oh, bite me!"

It set off a whole conversation about all of the allegedly polite but actually rude Southern phrases, and how we vowed to always call them out, rather than let them "get away with it." LOL. No harm, no big offense by the subject or by us, but it usually gets a chuckle out of both.

Or just recognized differences in terminology in general, not necessarily insults can be fun between Southerners and us "Yankees."

A real-life example:

Southern gas station clerk: "You want a sack?"

Me: "I have a sack already, can I have a bag?"

Southern gas station clerk: "Here you go, hun (hands over plastic BAG), now you've got a bigger sack."

Both: [have a chuckle and friendly goodbyes]

I still think it's weird how people in the midwest call bags bāgs. Or how they say "Dontcha know?" and the occasional "Ay?" thrown in. I had some friends from the south come up to help me with on a project, and they all stated I didn't know Canada was this far south! lol
