281: Where That Tongue Has Been

Strip 281.png

When I started the comic, it was a considered decision not to include any foul language. I don't think that small children are going to be reading this comic, I'd assume it's not silly enough for them, but I feel like many people rely to heavily on curse words for emphasis both in life and media. I personally don't swear often (unless I'm sailing), because I think it dilutes the power of the words and in most cases just isn't necessary. I also old fashionably consider it unladylike to cuss frequently. For writing, I think swear words can become a crutch. It's easier to throw an ugly word into the dialogue for impact than use something more specific and expressive.
