From high atop my ivory perch, I’ve noticed an increasingly worrisome trend among my friends and other generational peers: Many of us simply don’t know how to swear. No matter how many f-bombs we drop, or how many profanity-laden tirades we may tweet and delete at 2 in the morning, some people just can’t help but sound like disgruntled kindergartners muttering forbidden words under their breath. I don’t actually know if Stephen Wildish’s book How to Swear: An Illustrated Guide will help anyone with that, but it couldn’t hurt.
How to Swear is a book that “uses charts and flow diagrams to teach you the building blocks of an effective insult.” It lays out in visual terms the proper components of an effective swear, and if nothing else it could be a good way for cyborgs or alien visitors to learn how to communicate their emotions effectively.
