Happy Valentine's Day To Me!



My friend Poppy will be so pleased to hear that the "C Word" has found it's way back into polite conversation.

Ooh... that is going to cost NBC a lot.

Put it this way. I've used that word once in my life. ONCE. And I regretted it.

It's the secret password for obtaining commenting rights on my blog!

But somehow it sounds dirtier when Jane Fonda says it.

I just can't over how casually it was said. I've used the word but with venom.

Naomi said...

I agree, d.prince, Jane should be the one apologizing for such bandying - some words need to be kept for special occasions

I disagree. I personally would like to see the word "cunt" (yes, I said it) take back its rightful place in the English language. It comes from the old English "cunny" which is perfectly fine. I think the c-word has been given a bad rap for too long, now. It's a word that should be exalted and not used dirtily. So kudos to Ms. Fonda, I say. Hm, I sense a blog post coming on... :)

D. Prince said...

I can't wait to read it!

Hey sometimes someone deserves to be called that. I have one in my family in particular who is one, and there is no other way to describe her.

You can always depend on good old Jane to do the classy thing. She's such a ___.

Most of my readers are Brits. The C word isn't used the same way in the UK (though it can be) as it is here in Canada and the U.S. where it tends to have abusive and negative connotations.

We use it on my blog freely as a term of endearment (albeit twisted endearment) with each other.

Perhaps Jane Fonda’s “slip” was an attempt to one-up Diane Keaton, when she dropped the F-bomb on “Good Morning America” with Diane Sawyer.

Like her or not, Jane looks terrific for a 70-year old woman.

MJ, I think it is perfectly acceptable for a British person to say it and yet if a North American does it, it feels really wrong.

I wonder if there is another word that seems ok when one community says it, but isn't cool when anyone outside that context does. HMMM.... I know there is one in particular that must have gotten someone in trouble...

D. Prince said...

Well MJ is more British than most British people I know.
