Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

If you don't have any fucking thing to say in my shitty diary, then piss off.

(translation without swear words: "if you don't have anything to say in my possibly not very useful diary, then I suggest that you don't waste too much time sticking around"

—ing right.

In The Truth Terry Pratchett used a very effective  comic treatment of a foul mouthed character, just used —ing.

I have always believe though that in English we have lost the art of cursing whilst increasing the usage of swearing.

The possibly apochryphal curse

"May the fleas of a thousand camels find a home in your armpits"

is basically saying

"Fuck you"

but with much more style.

Eats cheroots and leaves.
