The F word

Gordon Ramsay uses the F word far too freely in my estimation, it suddenly seems as though he is constructing entire sentences out of the frightful coarse word, as opposed to tossing it randomly into conversation (OHMYGOD!). Gordon suddenly appears desperate to be perceived as hard, he is beginning to sound as contrived as Jamie Oliver and that other fake common person – Nigel Kennedy (gasp).

I watched his little cookery show the other night and was forced to retire to bed early afterwards with two Nurofen plus and a large glass of Chablis. If I was his mother I would slap his legs…

Dr Hilary... Gordan Ramsay... it's all too much... I am besotted with them both... i don't think i should come here anymore, it's leading me astray...

I always say it shows a marked lack of vocabulary. Except when I say it, and then it's very appropriate.

Darling Elsie,

I am a pre-menstrual, pre-menopausal, judgemental old bat. Please don't pay attention to a word I say. I couldn't bear to lose your friendship, I take it all back (slurp, hic!).

Sweet Expatmum,

I am with you, when I say it, it is entirely appropriate!

I'm afraid i have to own up to having a split personality. One side can formulate eloquent sentences, is perfectly able to control swearing when persons in authority or young children are present. The other, has the filthiest potty mouth, and actually sometimes says unpardonable words out loud just for fun. The words are so awful they reduce her to tears of laughter. It's very troubling.

As a completely random aside, I was wondering the other day, what on earth has happened to your lovely PA? Linda, was it? She whose partner smears himself in grease and swims across the kitchen floor? Where has she gone these days?

Darling Pig,

You are a scream! I shall ask Samantha to share some details with me when I return to work on Monday, no doubt she will shock my socks off.

Yup- it is not big, and certainly not clever, to swear like that.

I wonder what his mum really does think?!!!

Apparently his mum does tell him off because her friends comment on his "language" - saw him being interviewed on TV recently!

We do love dear Gord here in this household.

I think The Man doesn't notice his swearing because he sounds just like me. It all stems from working in the strip joint for all those years.

However that saying - swearing is the sign of a weak mind - always runs through my head - making it hard for me to think clearly when I hear it all the f***ing time.

Darling Girl with the mask,

I am so very pleased that the younger generation are unimpressed by this outragous behaviour.

Perfect Suburbia,

I assume that the carpet is well worn on her naughty step (sigh)!

Lovely Adventure Togs,

I am so very pleased to hear that.

Sweet Aims,

OHMYGOD! You are a scream.

Old Gordy may act hard and mean but he's actually a a bit of weak loser - and I have proof of this. A good friend of mine used to work for him and lets just say he doesn't put his money where his mouth is...all very mysterious I know, but I felt obligated to point this out to all those with crushes him. I'm sticking with Jamie - with him what you see is what you get x

Not, I disagree entirely with the above correspondent and with you, Mrs Dulwich Mum. Such language is too prevalent; why, just the other day I caught our Deputy Head Chorister uttering an obscenity. I don't think his parents are about to prosecute.

Well I'd rather hear a jolly good bit of profanity than Jamie Oliver’s 'Delish' abomination every time the wee eejit attempts to say delicious! Now I like a good eff and a good blind when the occasion demands but one’s language should be tempered to the social situation one finds oneself in. Personally when I am mixing with my aristocratic friends I find swearing is de rigour as is with the working classes. It is only the middle classes who are threatened by such colourful Anglo Saxon words! It is a fallacy that people who use swearie words are lacking in a good vocabulary – mine is excellent and I have an extensive vocabulary – I’m just an equal opportunities word user – equality for all. I thought you’d just like to know my effing point of view dear lady!

Okay, okay, I meant to spell it de rigueur! Means the same though! I have the typing skills of a monkey.
