Yes. They don’t really do that so much in blue collar America, or not in the parts of blue collar America I’ve been in anyway.
The American Gods short story I’m currently working on is set in the UK, where the swearing is slightly different, so you get sentences like
“Such bullshit,” said a woman’s voice. “But you always were a bullshitter, Ollie, you pusillanimous little cock-stain.”
But then, that’s a different world again.
YOUR BODY IS BEAUTIFUL IF:
- you have a body
- that’s it
- you’re beautiful
- you win
You have potentially offended hundreds if not thousands of ghosts.
