Swearing. Big & Clever. Sometimes.

Sometimes, just sometimes, an expletive is called for.

When you’ve stubbed a toe. When the server you tried to re-boot remotely doesn’t work and an unnecessary trip into the office is required. When the credit card company fails to send you a replacement for the nth time. When you fancy cheese on toast and you’ve run out of cheese. And bread. When you’re trying to work from home, and market researches decide to call at 5 minute intervals throughout the day. When you’re in a rush to get to the shops and some friendly soul has introduced a screwdriver to your car’s tire.

I could go on, but you get the gist. So, two little tidbits, I couldn’t help but share.

Stupid Fucking Mistake Ruining Whole Fucking DayFirstly, from The Onion. A tour de force as always. Such panache. Such a potty mouth. Probably NSFW, but depends on your office.

And finally, a witty, sweary ditty from sometimes controversial comedian, Sarah Silverman. Her boyfriend, Jimmy Kimmel, has a talk show in the US and at the end of the show often takes a pot-shot at Matt Damon, saying they’ve once again run out of time to speak to him on the show. This is Matt Damon’s response, with a little help from Silverman. Not entirely what you expect from such a straight guy, oh, and not entirely NSFW either…
