Oh for fucks sake, what next?

Apparently we need to be teaching new migrants to swear when they attend english classes.
 
So says an ESOL Teacher at AUT. It seems that teachers are loath to teach their students how to swear.
 
Mmmm…I don't think they need to learn this at all they will be perfectly able to pick it up all by themselves. 
 
Oh what the hell, lets look at what Wikipedia says about some swear words.
 
Fuck : The word "Fuck" is the only word in the English language that can be used to describe pain, pleasure and discontentment. It can be used as a verb (to fuck), noun (a fuck), adjective ("fucking"), adverb ("fucking"), or interjection.
 
Man this is fun, lets look up some others.
 
Arse : "Arse", from Old English ærs "tail, rump," from Proto-Germanic root arsoz (cf. Old Norse ars, Middle Dutch ærs), meaning anus, and by extension the crease between the buttocks of any animal, but especially the human bottom, with many cognates such as German Arsch, Dutch aars (meaning anus), Greek orros "tail, rump, base of the spine," Hittite arrash, Old Irish err "tail" has been connected with it. The Scots form is 'airse', or "erse". In English first attested c.1400 as arce-hoole.
 
This is so edukayshunool. What shall we look up next.
 
Bugger : Bugger is an expletive used in vernacular British English, Australian English, New Zealand English and Sri Lankan English. When used in context it still retains its original meaning, implying sodomy. However it is now more generally used to imply dissatisfaction (bugger, I've missed the bus i.e. Shit!, I've missed the bus)
 
Ok, ithink we can all safely assume that the Wikipedia does indeed contain everything.
