America swears by it!

In the English language, swearing is essential to effective communication. Whether you want to succeed in business, school, or social circles, a strong command of vocabulary is absolutely necessary. Just imagine a stranger to our shores, trying to comprehend the following conversation:

John: Mary, would you like to attend the opera this evening?

Mary: F*cking-A. should I wear my black dress?

John: Why the f*ck not?

Mary: F*cked if I know-Oh, f*ck! I just remembered. It got f*cked up in the wash.

John: Well, f*ck the opera. Let's stay home and f*ck.

Mary: Good f*cking idea.
