As a minor diversion from some more serious/formal research, I thought it’s be interesting to see what the most popular swear words were by using the 400+ available here http://urbanoalvarez.es/blog/?download=badwords and looking through the 3.2ish million tweets in my CouchDB corpus.  Those 3.2m tweets cames from the public tweet stream of 2927 people.

I parsed the tweets and ended up with ass. Enjoy
