It turns out that on the Potty Mouth Scale, we have caused barely a ripple in the linguistic sewage lagoon.

As you can plainly see, even with a rating of "high" (and by what pious, mealy-mouthed standard could 15.5% be considered "high" anyway?) we seem to be severely lagging behind in the cussing. This surprises me, because I guarantee you that a helluva lot more than 15.5% of our conversations around the family compound contain words and phrases that more than qualify, but I suppose we've been more cognizant of our language on the blog ... and this pitiful rating is the thanks we get!
To see just what constitutes an impressive Cuss-O-Meter reading, I checked to see how we stacked up against a known potty mouth, and ran the stats on Feral. I knew she'd win, but holy crap! She's got our pathetic pansy-asses completely licked (there ... I said "ass" and "lick" in the same sentence ... that should give us a tiny boost) with a whopping Cuss-O-Meter rating of 60.9%!
I realize that Feral's achievement (509% higher than the average blog) is one that we pedestrian slingers about of the vernacular can't even hope to approach (although I'll begrudgingly bet a goodly portion of that score is attributable solely to "wooo! tits!"), but still ... a paltry 15.5%? That's goddamned embarassing.
