From a frat house in Denton, Texas…

STAY THE FUCK OUT Please

to an alley in Sydney, Australia…

Do not throw rubbish here [fucker!!!] PLEASE

back to a dorm room in Richmond, Virginia…

Please - DON'T SLAM THE FUCKING DOOR -thanks :)

…the notion of “minding your manners” takes a few somewhat compromising turns along the way.

    Fuck just doesn’t have the same punch anymore.

    Vogue magazine says Cunt is the new Fuck.

    When I lived in Dublin the Irish would often say Feck, which was totally inoffensive. Fecking this, fecking that. Even in the workplace I would hear the manager speaking to clients on the phone how situation x was fecked.

    Change the eh to uh and you open a can of worms. The Irish get all Uh-uh-No you didn’t!

    P.s. I hope my original comment gets approved, I think dropping the C-bomb is an uh-uh-no you didn’t in the PAN world.

      We do the same with “flipping” in my family. It fools no one- not even my 7 year old nephew. And really, how can you tell a 7 year old not to say “I hate that flipping neighbor!” when they argue “but it’s NOT a bad word…” Sigh. I’m determined to just cuss. That way my kids know for sure what words will get their mouth washed out with soap.

      Another site I post at has an absolute no swearing policy, but having a mouth like a truck driver, I need an alternative, so freakin’ it is. I don’t know why the people over there don’t understand that, for all intents and purposes, “freakin’” and “fucking” mean exactly the same thing. And trying to have a conversation with any one of a number of pursed mouth prudes over there regarding fuck/copulate, piss/urinate, shit/defecate, and how they’re willing to use the latter but not the former, even though their meanings are identical, is an exercise in frustration.

      Here in New York City we often use “freaking” as a substitute for “fucking.” This is ironic, because New Yorkers are not exactly known for holding back when it comes to personal expression in speech.

      Sometimes I like to go the Monty Python route and use “intercourse” to make things little absurd. “Augh! I hate this intercoursing traffic!” But mostly I’ve made myself kid-friendly since my high school and college days by using 1890′s prospector swear words like “dagnabbit” and “consarn it.”

      I guess we can strike “fuck” from the seven words you can’t say in a PAN.

    “I’m really pissed off, but I’m still a really nice person, Motherfucker.”

    Yeah, that works. I’ll put this sign up just like this

    I was once stage manager for a play at our local community theatre. I kept getting complaints from the director (who was sitting in the audience during rehearsals) that whispering and laughing could be heard coming from backstage. So I kindly said: “Hey, please be quiet.” One of the actors said that I need to just yell “SHUT THE F*** UP!” Not being the sort of person who uses such forceful language I loudly whispered “Shut the f*** up…please?” Thankfully they found it so funny (pathetic?) that they obeyed.

      Stage managers in professional theaters don’t have to worry about cussing or not cussing. Professional actors know that the stage manager is the boss backstage. One withering look and a sharp word or two of command, with or without four-letter words, are all that are needed to keep order.

    These are honestly my favorite fecking PANs in a long time. They say so much with so little.

    Please do not slam the fucking door. Disobey this notice and you will be crucified to this door with the notice pinned onto your body as an example to others, thanks : )

    Heh… college PA notes are the best. Especially the ones on the female communal bathroom, they were all fancy gel-pen colors and asterisked swears and “please” “thx” “xoxo” …
