Hateful expressions....

"I should have killed her!" he said as he pulled the ladybug from his chili,
"She would have suffered less than drowning in a man's dinner"

"What a faggot!!!" she said, marveling at the current bundle of willow I was trussing up,
"In fact it's nicer than the faggots my grandfather used to tie up!!"

"God, how I hate him..... i just wish he would die!!!" he said in pure misery,
"That Jack Frost attacks my arthritis every year...with glee!"

"Man, I just wish they'd wipe that ENTIRE race off the planet!!"
"I'll never enter the Boston Marathon again..... they robbed me of my ribbon!!"

"If you ever leave me, I'll hunt you down and DESTROY you!!!"
He was serious. He would have to stamp out any errant ember from his "secret" habit,
As the barn was the only place for a clandestine smoke

"Wow!!!! That's the biggest, shiniest cock I've ever seen!!", he admired out-loud,
Knowing that fighting these magnificent birds was wrong...

All of which are demonstrative of CONTEXT, CONTEXT, CONTEXT......
Even "hateful" expressions can be something other than!
Can we take it too far?? Have we?? Should we??

Wear your heart on your sleeve, but for God's sake
Grow a few more layers of skin, so we all can be our own censors!!!!

    This is really cool. Enjoyed the whole premise, and was immediately drawn in. You ask a few intersting questions before ending everything off by saying to grow some thicker skin so that we can be our own censors. Excellent~Chris
