"10 of the greatest curse words" and your summary of the tenth is "meh"? ;)

Enjoyable post otherwise! :)

Ha, it was less "ten greatest" and "ten ranked", so the title is probably deceptive. I wanted to start off with the bottom of the barrel. Can't have the best without starting with the worst, I say.

 That was fun, thanks @tebakutis. Being a devoted fan of Red Dwarf "Smeg" has been a long time favourite,  glad it was included. Years ago a range of very up market Italian stoves and fridges appeared in our shops with brand name SMEG. Many jokes followed, but we're used to it now.  ;D
