The Swearing Festival

This coming Saturday, November 10, is the second annual Swearing Festival, which is exactly what it sounds like: an exploration and celebration of expletives.

The afternoon program is relatively staid, with a panel of linguists, authors, and publishers talking about cursing. The evening program is pretty much just cursing: competitive cursing, cursing to music, cursing in different languages.

If you’re in the Bay Area (the one near San Francisco, not the Bay of Fundy or Bengal), you might want to check it out.
