Elementary school is a wonderful time of discovery, where your mind absorbs more knowledge than at any other point in your life. In this time, you’re also going to learn and create countless vulgarities that will stick with you for the rest of your life, and are far more important than anything taught to you in, say, third grade. Who remembers anything from that grade, anyway?
So what is the ultimate elementary school swear word? What did you use to express anger or lay a sick burn down on one of your classmates? Is it one of the more inventive creations, perhaps a buttmouth or a boogerface? Or is it a variation of the old standby that captures the imaginations of young and old alike (fuck)? While it may seem like any profrane word could be in play, keep in mind that elementary school isn’t always the place where the full breadth of that kind of language is prevalent, especially at the very early levels.
But maybe we’re wrong. The goal here is to find out and put together 25 of the best swear words from that special time in our lives, when we were wide-eyed, innocent and driven completely by finding new things to pair with the word “poop.”
In order to build the top 25, these power rankings will alter every week, and they’ll need your help, especially if you want to see a different word added. So to vote in a new swear word that isn’t currently in the power rankings, comment below, tweet at us @thisisrobotbutt or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
