The Dilbert Blog: Frack: "One thing that has always puzzled me is why we don’t see special treatment facilities to help the children who are victims of cursing. We have special hospitals for all sorts of other diseases and afflictions, but no money goes into helping the children who accidentally watch HBO.
You might wonder how dangerous it is to expose children to curse words. I have never seen a scientific study on this topic but it’s easy to calculate the danger. For example, parents let children ride bicycles on the street. But parents do not allow children to hear vulgar words. Therefore we can deduce that cursing is more dangerous than being hit by a car."
