This is Stephen Fry, waxing eloquent on the joys of swearing. Since this is British swearing, I find it amusing but not terribly offensive (I think Americans are much better at swearing).

    I will have send a link of this to my father! His graduate thesis was “Expletives in the English language – comparing usage in Britain and the United States”.

    Apart from that, just about anything combining the talents of Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry is great entertainment; I have just purchased the whole box of their rendering of Jeeves and Wooster, hoping it will illuminate some dark winter evenings…

    I can assure you that most British people are much better at swearing. Stephen Fry is very good at doing it in an amusing and inoffensive way.

    I must agree with Thinker, Fry and Laurie may be the best comedy team of the last 50 years. And Jeeves and Wooster is one of the funniest TV shows around.
