* This trope is the reason why you don't, uh, fuck with Creator/ChristianBale. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0auwpvAU2YA Here's some audio proof.]] This epic rant was the result of a lighting assistant walking on set during the shooting of ''Film/TerminatorSalvation''. Every time a light technician or other crew member walks onto the set during filming, the take is useless. The shot has to be reset, the actors have to wait around for ten minutes to half an hour and try to keep up the energy so it doesn't look like they're completely bored when they do the next take. And this guy did it one time too many.

Every time He had a light technician or other crew member walks onto habit of walking on set with the set during filming, the take is useless. The shot has camera rolling to be reset, the actors have to wait around for ten minutes to half an hour tweak his lighting, and try to keep up the energy so it doesn't look like they're completely bored when they do the next take. And this guy he did it one time too many.many for Bale there.

Even Barack Obama got on the business end of this putang ina. Watch: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z6OBOeJ8AQQ a year in his colorful language]]. Even he occasionally flipped the bird.

* Vietnamese culture generally frowns on swearing, but walk into any gathering with middle to lower class people - especially from the provinces -, or schoolchildren, even from the top institutions in the middle of the capital, and you're likely to hear bombs thrown around like it's wartime again. Common interjections include the equivalents of "fuck", "fuck your mother", several crude words relative to female genitalia and sexual activity, et cetera. Amusingly, one famous folk imagery is of a woman standing in a public space in her village, arms akimbo, swearing up a storm at whoever has offended her (stolen her chickens, for example). There's a joke that the rural Vietnamese count swearing among some of their art forms.

** A bit of controversy erupted when he was chosen to be Obama's Chief of Staff. One reporter on Creator/{{NPR}} described him in Lewis Black's terms (below) as "using the F word like a comma." Another reporter described a plaque in Emanuel's office as having the text, "The Secretary of ____ Off." (Of course they had to bowdlerize for broadcast, as this was Morning Edition.)

* Ichiro Suzuki, a Seattle Mariners player whose first language is Japanese, in practice uses an interpreter for English language interviews. That hasn't stopped him from making some truly epic observations (such as his disdain for Cleveland), but in 2008, it was revealed that Suzuki makes a profane-laced speech--in English--to the American League team at every All-Star Game he has appeared in through 2010 (Suzuki was not on the 2011 team). No recording of this speech is readily available online. Other players who have witnessed the speech call it one of the funniest things they've ever seen.

** Chileans also like to swear a lot. There's a particular word known as ''huevón'' (literally "big egg", i.e. "balls"), which can mean ''many'' things from "dude" to "fucker" and is also adaptable to verbs and adjectives, and you never will hear a Chilean conversation in which there isn't two or three ''huevón'' bombs dropped in. More casual conversations will only get worse from there

** Within the U.K., Scottish people have this reputation.


* People in the construction field fucking swear like crazy. Young or old, every other fucking word out of a construction worker's fucking mouth is going to be yours fucking truly.
** The same can be said for many other trades. Work with them long enough, and an electrician's language is [[IncrediblyLamePun no longer shocking]]; a plumber's [[IncrediblyLamePun potty-mouth]] is hardly noticed.
** [[DrillSergeantNasty Drill sergeants]] are also notorious for their verbal skills in this department. At least in some branches. In others, such as the Air Force, they aren't allowed to swear, and instead find very interesting ways to express their feelings, leading to colorful [[LoopholeAbuse technically-PG]] expressions such as "What the piss, Trainee? Get over here, Clown!" Throw in some [[MemeticHandGesture knife-hands]] because pointing at a trainee is considered too aggressive, but making like you're about to karate-chop them in the friggin' throat somehow isn't.
** There's a ''reason'' for the saying "Swears like a sailor".
*** In sailing, in order to catch more wind and therefore sail faster, you typically don't want to be near other boats. Especially a cluster of other boats, since they're all lumped together and have limited movement because they can't hit each other. And since sailors, well, swear like sailors, they had to add "fuck" to the end. Therefore in sailing, "clusterfuck" is a group of boats lumped together, usually with little range of movement.
** Ditto for the oil field. If you spend much time on rigs, you soon realize that every third word is "fuck", "shit", or "cunt". Combinations and translations of said words are not uncommon either. Also, THE single most common phrase you'll hear while working on the fields is "WHERE'S THAT FUCKING MUDLOGGER!?".[[note]]The job of the mudlogger is to analyze and catalog the chemical composition of the mud, and the drilling cannot go on without regular updates from the mudlogger, which means that if the mudlogger is off taking a piss, having a smoke, answering his/her cell, or whatever, the drilling will not be able to continue without them, and if they take their sweet time, you're gonna have a bunch of very pissed roughnecks.[[/note]]


* [[VideoGame/TwistedMetal David]] [[VideoGame/GodOfWarSeries Jaffe]], essentially knows no social context, and will sprinkle these into his speech whether it be on his personal blog, while doing interviews, or appearing on a panel of guests. Most of the time he's not even upset when he says it.

** However, Nixon publicly campaigned on being against swearing, arguing that UsefulNotes/HarryTruman--a master of profanity--ruined the dignity of the office. Those "expletives deleted" merely revealed Nixon as a hypocrite. Among other things.

** Even when he became President, he had a bit of trouble. There is a story that he was commenting about one of the White House gardens and how he didn't care for the scent left by the manure they were spreading on the flowerbeds. When somebody complained to his wife, saying that he should instead say "fertilizer", she simply responded "You know how hard it was for me just to get him to say 'manure'?"

** Jay Johnstone copied and printed the whole thing in his book ''Temporary Insanity''. He had very good reason; Johnstone was a member of that Cubs team and he, among others, were fired up and did better once he got that… ''fervent'' show of true support from Elia. The coach still lost his job at the end of the season, however, likely due in large part to this truely inspired [[ClusterFBomb flood of invective.]] Elia himself never complained about it, although that could be because the first thing he said before the F-bombing run was "QUOTE ME". They did.

* After the infamous "tuck rule game" (an American Football playoff game decided by a particularly obscure rule), the losing Oakland Raiders were understandably put out. Analysts described the Oakland press conference afterwords as "the Raiders sounded like a truck backing up" (in the US at least, large trucks make loud beeping noises when in reverse).

* The logic of many middle schoolers seems to go, "Adults swear more than children. In movies, cool people swear more than nerds. Therefore, the more you swear, the more cool and grown-up you look. Also, swearing is some fucking fun shit! *giggles*" The result is a lot of this trope.
