So Channel 4 in the UK asked a bunch of actor/celebrity types what their favorite swear word was.

This was the result. (Requires Flash. Not exactly safe for work.)

It includes most of the casts of Scrubs, Six Feet Under, The West Wing, The Osbournes, Without A Trace and The O.C., as well as a bunch of other, mostly British, people I don't quite recognize. The information that was posted where I found it:
Here's the URL for an ad made for movie theaters by the UK's Channel 4,featuring some of your favorite stars whose shows appear on C4 (and probably some unfavorite ones) stating their favorite obscenities. The advertising regulatory agency said that the ad was too dirty to show in British cinemas, even though C4 was targeting it to run before showings of "Kill Bill 2." C4 says they'll air it on their E4 and FilmFour digital/satellite channels.
I was deeply amused by it, at least.

It's always fun when the British swear. Among the million reasons this is true is that "bollocks" and "bugger" sound like children's toys to me. Or Tolkien names for Hobbits. Or parts of furniture. Or cheese.

Good fun all around.

Funny story about that, actually. A friend of mine (who shall remain nameless) was in Europe with me. She had heard someone say 'bugger' and was terribly amused. It just really stuck with her. She'd say it at random times, just for fun, to pass the time: "Bugger, bugger, bugger!" I didn't really think anything of it until the one day when we were sitting next to an English family, complete with small children, and said friend decided to pass the time. She was pretty mortified when I explained to her what it actually meant.
