The New F Word

Because I want to be the best at everything I do, recently I decided to study humor. In case you haven’t noticed, this is a humor blog and to make sure I keep you laughing I have to up my game by studying the best.

So I went to You Tube, the best place to go when you’re trying to study something, and watched a lot of comedians. The only real standout thing that I learned was that apparently you have to use the f-word a whole heck of a lot to be funny. This puts a damper on my plans to up the funny. You see I don’t use the f-word, and I’m not going to start just to get a few extra chuckles out of you.

I’ve been trying to figure out a way around it, and I think I’ve come up with a plan. I’ll just make up my own swear word that starts with an F. After a ton of thinking and random combining of syllables, I’ve come up with the perfect one. How does flappentrop sound to you? I think it’s perfect.

    I’m a researcher, so my first instinct was to Google “fake swear words starting with the letter f.” This is when I realize that blog reading has probably resulted in a radical shift in whatever conclusions might be drawn about me based on my Google search history.

    I tend to use “eff” – and if challenged claim it’s short for effigy.

    Robyn, I end up Googling the strangest things as a result of what I read on blogs. I wonder what Google makes of me. Thanks for commenting.
