Dear Bad Writer, Stop Using Profanity as a Crutch
Todd Brison

The best cussing I ever heard was from Steven King, in his audio version of “On Writing”. It was pungent punctuation, like a caper in potato salad.

I think it’s more effective in spoken word than in writing, and of course, like the South Park episode dramatized, best used sparingly so as not to dilute it’s power.
