Vice News  Let’s face it: most of us swear. Some of us do so more than swear-wordothers. But while it’s generally frowned upon to be a foul-mouthed in public, new science is telling us that people who curse a lot actually might be more honest and trustworthy than those who stick to a conservative vocabulary.

According to a joint study titled “Frankly, We Do Give a Damn”—published by the University of Cambridge, Stanford University, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, and Maastricht University this month—cursing, both online and in real life, is heavily associated with honesty because honest people get emotional, and emotional people swear.

Well, der. I didn’t need science to tell me this one. Of course people who cuss like sailors are more honest. Show me a person who doesn’t drop f-bombs all over the joint and I’ll show you a dishonest, thieving, no account ne’re-do-well. Way to waste a bunch of money, University of Cambridge, Stanford University, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, and Maastricht University. You could have saved your cash and called me, you dumb a$+hole s*ns-a-b+tches.

Note: Seriously, who comes up with this garbage anyway? Don’t these people have more important subjects to study? Good Lord.

Note 2: According to this study my former college buddy Frank is the most honest person this earth has ever harbored, and he spent 4 and 1/2 years in the slammer for fraud. Science schmience.
