semi-judiciously sprinkling some 'fucks' into your web pages
April 21, 2015 1:43 PM   Subscribe

Fuck Shit Up is a Chrome extension that semi-judiciously sprinkles some "fuck"s into whatever web page you're reading. Not enough fucks? Hit the button a few more times. Gets interesting results when applied to news, dry technical stuff, Wikipedia, and Twitter at the least. [via mefi projects]

Is there any way to turn this on so that it automatically sprinkles the fucks on the page, without having to hit the F button? Because then you could hotdog some co-workers' machines for fucks and giggles. Not that I'd ever do that myself nosiree.

I have never heard that use of the word 'hotdog' before and oh my god thank you

Also, the second screenshot in the Chrome Web Store (MeFi is great). "Posted by Fucking Michele in Fucking California" indeed.

And looking at the source, it's actually pretty complex in trying to make it work grammatically. Impressive.

That use of the word actually has some history. Hot Dog Stand was a visual theme for Windows 3.1. Look it up, it's fucking hideous. In the old days you'd change a co-worker's machine to that theme. Thus, hotdogging.

That would probably get you a commendation from typical clients on the fucking Eastern seaboard.

I was reading a student's thesis draft today and it quoted liberally from various rappers the author had interviewed, thus it was full of fucks. However, judiciously, the student spelled it "Fu*ck" every time, with the asterisk not standing in for an absent letter, rendering the word daintily unfinished to the eye, but rather with the asterisk interrupting a complete spelling of the word, a defiant slippage past the filtering software of life. I realized this was how someone used to posting things on internet comment boards and the like (where a deliberate misspelling often gets a word through, like a$$h0le) would indicate that "fuck" was a discourse token being cited, not in the author's own voice.

I gave the paper a Fucking A.

dry technical stuff,

Old 70's National Lampoon had a featurette on 'Sex Scenes added to Literature', that got funnier when they included science texts, dry technical stuff, and other completely random things, often using strange euphemisms and twisted innuendos rather than just adding the feck word.

Ditto on divined by radio's brilliant and infuriating post.
South Carolina has been a fucking patriarchal society from its very fucking inception, and women have long been fucking relegated to a secondary status.

They lacked the fucking right to serve on juries here until fucking 1967, and the fucking Palmetto State didn't formally ratify the 19th fucking Amendment giving women the right to fucking vote until two years later. Women couldn't fucking file for fucking divorce in South Carolina until 1949. Marital rape wasn't criminalized until 19fucking91.
So fucking cathartic!

There's too much swearing these days. I say this not because swearing is bad. Swearing is actually really useful. It serves a purpose. It is primal. These are deep seated words that come out in extreme situations.

The problem is that with people now swearing everywhere, what words can your brain reach for when the extraordinary happens? What word do you yell out when you smash your thumb with a hammer? What if you are at the zoo and a rhino escapes and is charging at your friend? Do you yell out "FUCK!"? He'll just smile and yell "FUCK" back at you before meeting his maker.

That's why you don't swear unless it is really, really necessary. How do you know it is necessary? You don't have to worry, the word will just come out on its own. And your brain will be thankful that you've been keeping these special words in reserve for use in this emergency.

This is what I tell my kids, anyway (and that's the truth!).
