Subject: BS: Can someone tell me.......

Date: 02 Apr 20 - 07:56 PM

.......why it is that some Murricans and Canadians will not write the word "hell"? Do they think that by writing "H-E-double hockey sticks" they will lessen their chances of ending up there?

I noticed it appearing on blogs a few years ago, and have been intrigued ever since. In this time of home isolation and a certain amount of boredom I thought it the perfect time to ask, because it might give your collective brains something to think about other than "what chair will I sit in today?"

People here (rural southwestern Ontario) still flinch at blasphemy and obscenity, especially in the presence of “ladies” and children. It’s just rude, they say, and “inappropriate”.

Now, I cuss like a trooper with a hangover, but I married a son of the manse who grew up in country villages. After thirty years in the Army and more than twenty years married to me, my poor husband still has a hard time with my vocabulary.

I don't know - but I would assume that the only people writing that are teenage girls just being teenage girls. I'm a Canadian getting long in the tooth, and that is something I've only ever encountered recently on the internet, and it wasn't my impression that it was intended to be taken seriously.

On the other hand, there are certainly Christian fundamentalists who avoid certain such words that have religious implications. They take all that stuff quite seriously.

No, meself, they weren't teenage girls. They were women, and I would say most would be at least on the shady side of 50.

Charmion - one woman who used this euphemism was indeed from Ontario, just west of Toronto.

Out here in Oz when we want to say or write "hell", we just do.

It's not just the word 'hell'. You get 'sh1t' or 'sh!t' as well. Otherwise sensible people here on Mudcat write about f*lk music and Fakebook, as if the very utterance of the actual word causes them pain. They think that they are being clever but it is just a childish affectation which becomes really annoying after a while.

Minced oaths have been around a long time in the spoken word. I use 'heck' without thinking but I find 'oh my gosh' for 'oh my God' really gets up my nose. Writing was normally used for more formal communication but with the coming of emails and texts, which are typed rather than written long-hand, alternatives such as the double hockey sticks have become available.

Oooh this is fascinating! Bill Bryson in his book Mother Tongue devotes a whole chapter to swearing. His is an interesting perspective because he's an American who has lived for many years in UK.

I love 'minced oaths' although I'm ashamed to say I can swear like a trooper when riled, even in Malinke.

There are so many ways of expressing oneself in anger or surprise.
I like:- "Oh my giddy aunt!"
       "Well go to the foot of our stairs!"
       "Open the front door!"
       "Strike a light!"
and a whole selection of rude insults involving various genitalia!
'Hell' seems rather feeble in comparison.

Cockney rhyming slang has dozens and dozens of euphemisms for swear-words,eg Donald Duck, Dipstick (prick), Bristols (Bristol City = titty), George The Third (turd)

There is a danger of sounding rather pompous when casting judgement on the language-usage of others, especially of those in geographical, social, or generational regions not your own. What in one regional context is clearly a euphemism may in another just be a more-or-less neutral, common word; i.e., the speaker is not deliberately using it to replace an objectionable word. So to suggest that, for instance, if someone uses 'gosh' or 'darn' it is because they are too prissy to say, 'God' or 'damn' reflects either limited experience or limited imagination. In all likelihood, the speaker of these 'euphemisms' has no urge to say 'God' or 'damn' - they probably grew up with 'gosh' and 'darn' in the familial and local vernacular and simply carried on the speech they had grown up with. If they were to expunge 'gosh' and 'darn' from their lexicon and replace them with 'God' and 'damn', it would be through deliberate effort - why should they bother? So someone on the internet won't sneer at them?

I don't think I've heard the euphemism in question, "H-E-double hockey sticks" used in the 3D world. It's usually deployed in films and on television by characters who are made to appear buffoonish by it's usage.
The America I grew up in is full of profane characters and language and my personal favorite expletive is "Jesus H. Fuckin' Christ".

Unfortunately, I also use that one, but only because (a) there's little historical evidence that he existed, (b) even if he did he probably faced the same frustrations as the rest of us and swore like a trooper (who wouldn't, forced to hang out with a scruffy bunch of twelve blokes and no women), and (c) because I think he'd have thought that it was bloody funny. Bugger me sideways with a burnt chip if I'm wrong (and cheers to Raggytash for that beauty...)

Y'know, many on-line platforms block the most popular blasphemies and obscenities, especially the seven words you must never say on television. I'm sure that's an influence on some people.

Back in the day when I was employed at National Defence Headquarters, one of my many odd little tasks was writing or translating the captions for photographs distributed from our Combat Camera unit to the commercial news media. Now, the DND wide-area network has famously twitchy monitoring software, but I never knew how twitchy it was until one day when I was writing captions for photos of the dedication of the First Nations war memorial, a ceremony attended by literally every aboriginal big-wig in the country. I had just finished Googling for the name of the then National Chief of the Assembly of first Nations when my screen blanked and a message popped up to inform me that I had been nabbed in the act of accessing "inappropriate" material.

What set it off? Well, the National Chief of the Assembly of First Nations at that time was one Matthew Coon Come of the Cree nation in northern Quebec.

As for H-E-Double hockey sticks, I believe it is the 21st-century urban Canadian version of Tarnation.

But fuck 'em all if they won't take a joke.

Senoufou, you might just remember an actor and musician named Anthony Newley. One of his later film outings was this sex farce, which did considerable damage to several careers.

I saw this film at a second-run cinema that showed double bills (often wildly mismatched) with my mother, who probably sat through it to get to whatever was on the other half of the bill. I was about 16 at the time, and I remember thinking, "Does Mum realize what's going on in this movie?"

Ok what is a pubic wig/merkin?

I have been, as an avid atheist, trying to ban deity-based swears from my vocabulary since the 1980's. I came home from my first semester at college saying god this and goddamn that and pissed off my atheist dad.

So I decided not to use god (or names/euphemisms therefor), damn (ditto), heaven or hell (ditto again for those). I was left with shit and fuck and, for emphasis, very. It is paralyzing.

I say My word! a lot. And when really mad, thus with no time to edit, god and damn and hell still, after decades, are what pop out.

So my kids could always tell if I was *really* angry.

But my reason is that I don't want to perpetuate the dangerous myth.

Back in my childhood my mother - or indeed any adult, if there were children present - would never say "shit". "Bugger" was her worst, but the occasional "bloody" did slip out. My father didn't swear in front of us. If we heard an adult say "shit" in our presence we knew things would go rapidly downhill, usually to our detriment.

If she was really provoked she would say "oh....sugarmagundy!" I have no idea where that came from, but it was reserved for times such a bowl full of cake mix being dropped on the floor.

I'm not one given to excessive profanities online. I never say "fuck" or "fucking" unless I'm quoting someone, though I never judge them wot do use 'em. There's something in my brain that rails against "cunt" in public. It's probably to do with the fact that a cunt is a part of a woman's body and that I therefore don't like the word used pejoratively. I mean, why would I use it thus when I know what a beautiful place it is? In fact, when I'm on my own in my car and exhibiting barely controlled road rage (which means road rage with my windows still wound up and when I've definitely ascertained that the bugger who's annoyed me is either old, a lady, or a bloke who's much littler than me...), I use the word with embarrassing freedom, along with a good few choice others. As in, for the little old bloke who's positioned himself so badly to turn right that I can't pass him on the inside, "Why don't you f*uck off and die upside down in a ditch, you degenerate old c*unt..."

Oh yes - I remember when that book was first published. It's very funny.

Here's a quote from my etiquette book bought at a library cull several years ago, a 1982 reprint of a book first published in 1886:

"Prudery.
Avoid an affectation of excessive modesty. Do not use the word "limb" for "leg". If legs are really improper, then let us, on no account, mention them, but having found it necessary to mention them, let us by all means give them their appropriate name."

I think, from spelling and terms used, that this book was first published in the U.S.A. Title is "Australian etiquette, or the rules and usages of the best society in the Australasian Colonies, together with their sports, pastimes, games and amusements. Revised, illustrated and compiled expressly as a household treasure for Australian homes."

I doubt it - it's probably just their usual manner of speech. As I tried (why?) to point out above, there are many people in North America who use words like 'heck" and "darn" just because they use them - they are not trying struggling to avoid saying something potentially offensive.
