When your 8 year old son asks you if there is a swear word worse than ‘Fuck’. Your initial thought should not be ‘Yes’. Your first thought should be “Why the fuck are you saying the word ‘Fuck’?! You’re eight fuckin’ years old!” Let alone having a discussion with your child about whether or not you’re lying when you say “No, there isn’t a word worse than ‘Fuck’.”
But that’s just what John Ronson did.
Now, don’t get me wrong, the article about such a conversation is admittedly funny. But that doesn’t detract from the fact that the guy had a lapse in judgment when it came to what came out of his mouth.
Just thought I’d throw that out there.
