Hand me the fucking keys, you cocksucker, what the fuck?

You’d think that I’d have enough of catalogues and that sorta stuff at work, wouldn’t you? But you’d be wrong. A while back I stumbled across Library Thing, but didn’t use it that often. But I’ve recently returned, and have been busy adding my books. Only I don’t have too many in Dublin, many, many more i gcontae Sligeach. So I’d less than 100 up there. I’m only adding books that I actually own. But then I spotted that a few people were adding dvds too. And I thought to myself, hmmmmm[1] and started to add my dvd collection. Only it is slightly more time-consuming, so I don’t have too many up yet. Because instead of just going to amazon and hitting the “Add to LibraryThing” widget I have to do that and then edit the info.

So that is what I spent yesterday evening doing instead of upgrading wordpress. Guess I’m going to put that off for another week, at the least, seeing as I’m going to Sligo this Friday, and have the Horse Show next Friday.

Just after I’d finished adding Essex Boys, which I still have to watch, and to finish the entry, I spotted that there was yet more war on the telly. So I turned it off, thinking, they’re all as bad as each other, the cocksuckers[2] Which got me wondering. Why are some words insults/curse words?[3]

I mean, why is cocksucker an insult[4] Is it really a bad thing for one to suck a cock? I know, I know, maybe the rooster doesn’t like it, but it’s not like it’s harming anyone?

  1. I went home to Sligeach one time and my poppa was raving about Deadwood (which is now in the list of 'things to watch but only if I can watch it all from the start i.e. on DVD') and made me watch this wonderful scene where Swearengen and this Chinese fella who spoke very little English (what with him being Chinese and all) was complaining about having his drugs nicked by these cocksuckas and wanted Swedgin to do something about it. The whole story was conveyed using about three words (two of which were Swedgin and cocksucka) and a lot of gestures and even a little diagram. Priceless.

    I really must watch Deadwood. It's got Timothy Olyphant in it. He was soooo good in A Man Apart. And Grima Wormtongue. And wasn't Veronica in it?

  2. Buy? BUY? Excuse ME. I am the one who'll not be earning for the next year if/when I get my zams and go to the Inns AND I'll have a massive debt. So tis you who'll be purchasing shit and lending em to me. That's the way it works. I leech off you. It's like symbiosis, cept you don't benefit.

  3. Well, the way I figure it is that you're so far in debt, another few hundred couldn't hurt, could they?

  4. Whilst not wishing to partake of the activity myself, I would like to state for the record that I don't consider it a bad thing per se ;)

  5. Zackly Alan. Exactly. I think we should start to redefine cocksucker. No longer shall it be a term of abuse, but instead, it shall be a title of high praise. Cocksucker: one who does something really nice for someone, something they can't do for themselves.

  6. *splutter* Imaginary tea going everywhere….

    But women are never called cocksucker, right? So it's really a homophobic term of abuse. So all the more reason to redefine it. Take back the word, vagina monologues stylee.

    Can you not do it for yourself though? Hmmm. Wasn't there something in Clerks about some guy breaking his neck trying to self-fellate?

    And I'm officially into Trouble At Work territory. I'm audi.

  7. With this new definition NM any woman can be a cocksucker. As can any man.

    Carl, we all have to suffer to make the world a little better.

  8. Sadly, in the circles I hang out in, Cocksucker is a compliment and Bisexual is an insult. Neither should be an insult in my fantasyland. But that's what it is, I suppose, a fantasyland.

  9. Maybe we have to make fantasyland into a reality? Although possibly by not calling random people cocksuckers on the street. That way lies possible violence from the misunderstanding :)
