Study: Connecticut’s Favorite Swear Word Starts With a ‘B’
A new analytics study conducted by Word Tips found the average American now uses 80-90 curse words per day.
That is not all, they broke down which states in America swear the most and ranked them. They looked at social media posts to determine how many swears were used per 1,000 posts. From that data Word Tips was able to rank the states.
In the end, Word Tips says Georgia swears more than any other state. Connecticut was tied for 14th in the nation which I find hard to believe.
NOTE: The above graphic is a bit confusing. The number represents the amount of swears per 1,000 posts. CT had 30 swears per 1,000 which tied us for #14 in America.
Really, this is an analysis of how much people are willing to swear on social media, not what they say throughout the day. CT people don't like anything, including each other, which leads to a lot of swearing.
If there was a way to really figure out how much we actually swear, out-loud, I'm certain we would lead the nation. Also, swearing on social media is not that smart, thankfully, my psychotic career path allows for it.
Below are the Top 10 Swears we love the most in America.
The "F" word is the best but it turns out the "B" word is our favorite curse word in the Nutmeg State. Wanna know show swears the most? People named Kai, and Kimberly curses the least.
Below are the American cities that curse the most, and least.
My job, my goal everyday is to make people laugh, and swears are a wonderful tool to get a laugh. If they are used properly, and well placed, a curse can make a funny story, a very funny story.
The key is to limit your curse words. Sometimes I have difficulty with that idea but it makes for a better user (laughee) experience. One way to incorporate a swear to make people laugh, is to place the curse word in a nonsensical place in the sentence, or to shorten the word. You can't use these all the time because people will think you're dumb. Give it a try.
Instead of the "F'ing Spoon", you use the "F-- spoon", all you're doing is removing the "I-N-G" and adding a pause between the two words, while waving one hand as if you're searching for a new word. You want to appear to be frustrated or angry in this situation, like you couldn't say it correctly.
Instead of "I put the spoon on the F'ing counter", you say, "I put the spoon on the counter F---", moving the swear to the end of the sentence, and removing the I-N-G. This is funny, because you're referring to the counter as if it had a personality, an annoying one.
The people who laugh at this, are good, decent people who love fun. The people who don't laugh are potential serial killers.
