Just had a quick go at The Profane Game** but despite trying to remember some of Lyle‘s little gems (and *Karan‘s wonderful term which I use repeatedly and always see written as such in my head).

I scored a miserly 14 which I’m blaming on being British (why is arse not acceptable but ass is?) and not terribly imaginative in the cussing department.

The top score currently 140 – go see if you can beat it ‘cos I sure as shit can’t.

    I can’t explain why but I can use “arse” in front of anyone and they smile. “Ass” would get a frown.

    Not sure if I’m exactly proud to say I beat you with “36,” but it definitely helped having grown up with this drilled into my memory.

    I’m not even going to admit what my score was.

    But it’s amazing what a couple of years of being in an army pipe band can do for one’s vocabulary.

    Amazingly, I scored *really* low – but that’s mainly because most of the words I use are British and/or made up on the spur of the moment.

    For example, the twatting thing wouldn’t accept shitstabber, cumsponge, tosser, fuckface, bollockchops, twadge, twunt, arsebrain, fuckbunny, or shitfuck cuntwit

    So I gave up.

    I only managed 16…only 16…me who takes great pride in my filthy mouth. Shameful. Just shameful.

    I struggled with this. 8 first try (using words I use), then 16 but that was using the worst swear words I could think of, and ones I never use either. Pathetic.
