You Son of a . . .

Swearing at work boosts team spirit and morale. At least that is what a new study is claiming. For some reason this reminds me of a recent episode of South Park where Cartman faked having tourette's. He blurted out everything that came to mind. Eventually he lost the censor and couldn't stop saying things that he did not want or intend to say. I also don't think swearing is going to help develop social relationships.

From Article:
LONDON (AFP) - Regular swearing at work can help boost team spirit among staff, allowing them to express better their feelings as well as develop social relationships, according to a study by researchers.

I work in a rectory, so I'm not so sure that would be applicable in my case.l (not that we wouldn't want to, of course. There are some crazy moments, bad moments, not to mention the times I've slammed a finger in the drawer of the fire-proof cabinet where we keep sacramental records - if I could resist swearing then I could probably resist it anytime.) So I think I must content myself with Tourette's-by-proxy...
