I was just me in my car cuzin
With the tunes turned up
And that shit of being was better than
All the fucking drugs in the whole world
Oh hell yes I was filled with the Holy Ghost

Where did swearing get its taboo status?

Me and my brother were having a debate about swearing, but we both got to the point where aside from it being a social stigma, and a taboo word, we didn't know why (or where) it got its status. Did a group of people get together and outlaw words? Where did these roots of obscenity get their place. I honestly don't know and it sounds like a worthy challenge for the blog. I also had the thought of where did other languages get the taboo words? Each society has a list where did they come from?
