    Figured on making this broad- I just wanted to post something I came across, a "Special Instruction" to baseball players in 1898. It chides them on using foul language and cites some awesome examples. "You cock-sucking son of a bitch!" and "I'll make you suck my ass!" are some of the tamer versions.

    I think my favorite part of that is at the end, where it says "Unmailable"

    LOL anti-obscenity laws.

    Wow. That's awesome.

    And people complain about the trash talk that comes with online games like Halo and Counterstrike nowadays, heh.

    Well, one shouldn't be too surprised. After all, these were Baltimore baseball players.

    Cunt-lapping dog? I wonder if Warren gets his eye-raising obscene slurs from some old diction or compendium of vulgar tongue?

    I anticipate an upcoming issue of Thunderbolts where Norman Osborne tells Penance to suck his ass.

    Yeah, and people complained the dialogue in "Deadwood" wasn't "authentic to the time period"...

    See, it goes like this:
    "We're all such potty-mouths and gutter-brains today. Now, 120 Days of Sodom, that was classy written language. A charming tale with elegant prose."

    There's a history of the Glorious Revolution, called appropriately enough "The Glorious Revolution".

    It's a pretty staid, formal academic work but at various points the author quotes from treason and sedition trials of the times.

    So you get stuff like: "And then the aforesaid William Geoffreys did testify that on or about the 15th of March, 1790, the aforesaid Mark Spencer did call His Majesty "A sodomite, a Dutch dog and a son of a Whore".

    And

    "Spencer said "Fuck the King" and Draper replied "Nay, brother, that's the Lord Chamberlain's job." "
