Strange thoughts: Isn't it kind of pitiful when a little kid with Tourette's Syndrome doesn't yet know any good shocking swear words to shout in class or church, simply because they have not learned any yet? They have an uncontrollable compulsion to shock people, but they can't do it, simply because they don't have the right vocabulary yet? That must be terribly frustrating for them.
Maybe it would be the humane thing to teach them some good ones?
But what if we only taught them a bunch of Elizabethan curses? How funny would that be?
TROLLOP! SLATTERN! STRUMPET! WHORE-MONGER!
or even Shakespearean:
Thy vile canker-blossom’d countenance curdles milk and sours beer. May thy pigs be set upon by ravens and torne asunder leaving only bespecked bone and curdled fat for which the rats upon to feast!
