The History Of Swear Words

Following up from our Positive News poster we’re also running a series of posters for our favourite and most recommended watches during lockdown. This month’s suggestion is The History of Swear Words. We all know them, a lot of us use them everyday (some more than others) but where do all these gloriously taboo words come from? This show breaks down the etymology of some of the most common and classic profanities we have and demystifies common misconceptions we have grown to embrace about them. It also has Nic Cage being Nic Cage, what more could you want? It’s streaming on Netflix right now.
