The Side Effects Of Too Many Drugs

It may be time to consider weaning yourself from the bong when you find yourself engaged in such MENSA worthy activities such as the following:

The Number Of 'Fucks' In Deadwood

I've heard Deadwood is a great show but I'm far too cheap and I refuse to pay for HBO so I've never seen it. However, I'm trying to figure out, mathematically, just how many ounces of pot one must smoke to think it's a great idea to count each and every utterance of the word, "fuck" in every, single episode ever aired.

The word "fuck" is colorful, wonderful and rather useful at times, of that I agree, but it loses its appeal after the 10th time it's repeated in a span of 30 minutes. This is like counting how many times Paris Hilton says, "That's hot" in her show, The Simple Life. Besides, Deadwood has nothing on the three 10 year old neighborhood boys around here.

Of course the fact that I'm writing about this probably doesn't make me much better.

The word fuck in the show is overshadowed by the grandiose and melliifuous usage of "cocksucker."

The dialog is touted as authentic, and I believe it. We aren't talking mere cursing such as "fuck you." No, the insults are highly structured. The language is different enough that paying close attention is necessary - and rewarding.
