Cunt

There - that got your attention didn't it!

Cunt really, honestly, is my favourite word. I’ve been trying to use it at least once daily – more often in polite company – since I was introduced to Peter Cook and Dudley Moore’s album Come Again as a teenager in the late 80s. I had no feminist reasoning behind it then, I simply loved the word. I loved the reaction it got from people. I loved the fact that this word, those four letters strung together, those four letters that when spoken created that harsh and nasty sound, could make men and women, young and old absolutely disgusted. A word! Wow! It was the moment I realised the incredible power of words. It was also the moment I realised that I was on a mission to destroy the power of that one word in particular.

from a long, fully researched and impassioned treatise on the word which is well worth reading.
