I'm Not, But If I Were...

So the annual A to Z Blogging Challenge apparently became a bit of a clusterfuck when some independent-minded bloggers got chastised for using words like "clusterfuck." Because - hold on your hats - apparently hypocritical prudes exist on the Internet.

No shit?!?!
And I'm really too lazy to piece together the chain of posts, counter-posts, and counter-counter-posts that led up to the idea, but someone has now come up with an A to Z challenge for the month of May that revolves specifically around cursing.

I'm too drunk to center it, but there's the link.

OK, so I'm not a joiner. Because the one thing I hold true in this world (besides that my Precocious Daughter is the best person on the planet) is that ANY movement inevitably becomes exclusionary and cliquish. And the more said movement positions itself as being inclusionary and/or outsiderish, the more likely that is to be true.

Or maybe it's just that nobody likes me. In which case, the world can go fuck itself and I'll get off by watching.

Because hell yes.
But in theory, at least, the A to Z Swearing Challenge is pretty cool. And since several blogs I love with unhealthy levels of devotion and respect are endorsing and/or participating in it - like Jeneral Insanity and Stacey at Maple Syrup Land - I'll give it a shout-out.

I can't promise I'll actually do it for the entire month of May myself. I'm busy, and I have a wicked short attention span, and OH YEAH MY MARRIAGE IS BREAKING UP HAVE I MENTIONED THAT? But I may. Or not. But here's my completely non-binding and unenforceable statement of support for the concept.

That's the best I can do, I swear to God.
And if today were going to be my first post on the subject - which I am NOT promising, because you people have enough reasons to get on my case already - it would be A for Antecrapulum. Which roughly translated from the Latin means "the shit just before it hits the fan." As far as you know.

Ha. Haha. Hahahahahahahahaha.
Anyway, good luck to my blogbuddies who are jumping into the challenge. I'm right there with you. Or not.



  1. The best part of this challenge (besides the celebration of gratuitous swearing) is the rules are everyday in May or post once or just read the posts and (hopefully)laugh your fucking ass off, it's all good.

    In all seriousness I am so sorry about your marriage breaking up...I've been there and it sucks completely...hugs to you :)

  2. Dont change a thing. curse words or not love your blog and humor. You always make me smile. except that part in the middle, my heart is with you. Love always

  3. Of course I'm cliquish. I only like other bitches who fucking curse. Kidding.

    Thanks for joining us, however lax it may be. I look forward to reading more because you made me smile.

  4. I found you on the ABC's of Swearing list thing - YAY! You're funny. I'm not just saying that because I was hypnotized by the first cat GIF. I read the beffuckled post before I even saw that cat and thought you were funny then.

    P.S. Sorry about your marriage breaking up. I've been there as well and it fucking sucks balls.

  5. I really like your use of cat gifs but I'm pretty sure you made antecrapulum up. Not that it matters, because FUCK DA POLICE.

  6. So much vulgarity in the midst of so many cute fucking cats!

    Cheers from B at

  7. I love you so much :) I'm so sorry that you're going through hard times right now. But I'm also SO glad that you decided to do this, and that you made up your own swear for this post. Your writing always makes my heart smile!

    I am going to use the word "antecrapulum" SO much that it's going to make people in my house sick to their stomachs. This is going to be great!


You're thinking it, you may as well type it. The only comments you'll regret are the ones you don't leave. Also, replies to threads make puppies grow big and strong.
