When, as you sit at a table, working on some papers, you look up at the tv. The news is on, and there is an interview with a 14-year-old boy. He’s telling everyone to sign the petition to stop swearing. Because (duh, he says) it’s nice to “talk clean.” You then look over at the people sitting at the table next to you.
“Did you see that @?#? chair when I @*$ took *%$@#!$ -”
“@!#@#!#* No @#$!@#%$$ way!”
“You gotta *% be @#!*%^#$ kidding me!”
Or, when you laugh at the advertisement saying that “THIS IS NOT A JOKE! YOU ARE THE 1,000,000 VISITOR!” (or whatever number it was…) and the person sitting by you says, “It’s not funny. It says right there that it’s not a joke.” The next day, you’re on the same page and what does it tell you at the top?
“THIS IS NOT A JOKE! YOU ARE THE 1,000,000 VISITOR!”
