The most functional English word

  THE MOST FUNCTIONAL ENGLISH WORD

Well, it's shit ... that's right, shit! Shit may just be the most functional word in the English language.

Consider: You can get shit-faced, be shit-out-of-luck, or have shit for brains.

With a little effort, you can get your shit together, find a place for your shit, or be asked to shit or get off the pot.

You can smoke shit, buy shit, sell shit, lose shit, find shit, forget shit, and tell others to eat shit.

Some people know their shit, while others can't tell the difference between shit and shineola.

There are lucky shits, dumb shits, and crazy shits. There is bull shit, horse shit, and chicken shit.

You can throw shit, sling shit, catch shit, shoot the shit, or duck when the shit hits the fan.

You can give a shit or serve shit on a shingle.

You can find yourself in deep shit or be happier than a pig in shit.

Some days are colder than shit, some days are hotter than shit, and some days are just plain shitty.

Some music sounds like shit, things can look like shit, and there are times when you feel like shit.

You can have too much shit, not enough shit, the right shit, the wrong shit or a lot of weird shit.

You can carry shit, have a mountain of shit, or find yourself up shit creek without a paddle.

Sometimes everything you touch turns to shit and other times you fall in a bucket of shit and come out smelling like a rose.

When you stop to consider all the facts, it's the basic building block of the English language.

And remember, once you know your shit, you don't need to know anything else!!

You could pass this along, if you give a shit; or not do so if you don't give a shit!

Well, Shit, it's time for me to go. Just wanted you to know that I do give a shit and hope you had a nice day, without a bunch of shit. But, if you happened to catch a load of shit from some shit-head.......... Well, Shit Happens!!!

  I don't know, fuck sure does give shit a run for it's money.


They are both equally enjoyable to say, and to do as it happens.

  I thought 'shit' was French?!







(But it's not so I'm not funny after all.)

  Aw, that made me giggle. But I actually thought fuck was more versatile? Fuck is like every part of speech you can imagine.

It could be, but there are still people who won't use the word "fuck", but I'll bet even Mother Theresa was a shit slinger every now and then.

That's true. I don't like to say fuck. It really ditresses me because when I say it it sounds so much more angry then when other people say it and people get shocked because I made a normal word like fuck sound brutal. And I can't help it. So I don't say it. I'm even uncomfortable typing it.

But shit I have no trouble with, as long as it's not said by itself. It has to have some sort of context. Shit by itself seems to me like I can't control my exasperation and I hate that.

  I think its a draw between the f-bomb and shit. The f-bomb definantly express a sense which shit simply can't. But don't swear as much as I used to so i'm not terribly good at either.

Though I am trying my best to use "smurf" in daily conversation now. I keep missing the opprotunity to tell my boss to go "smurf" himself. I just want to seek the look on his face.

Not that it matters...
