I'm not a spambot
Oh my God you're a fucking retard.

Yeah, that's a bad habit I'm trying to get rid of. I do like saying Jesus Tittyfucking Ass-slapping Bear-raping Christ.
7/30/2008 3:28:26 AM
Or maybe it's just a phrase that's been drilled into our minds via society?
7/30/2008 3:30:21 AM
You might want to look up the word "cliche"...

Allegory for Jesus
We also firmly believe in the fabled "holy shit", in the blessed Saint "Oh please, not in the face", in the Archangel "Just take the money, don't shoot", and of course, the pantheon of cuss words unfit for the ears of the delicate citizens of the intertubes. We Americans have a very complicated faith...

Guilty as charged.
I've said it plenty-o times before. In my defense, it does not retain any Christian meaning.
It's a empty phrase that has been around for centuries, even before Jesus Christ.
Imagine a Greek, saying, "Great ZUES!!!". It does not mean squat.

Because I might say "Jeezuz F*ckin' Christ" does that mean I believe in Jeezuz? If I say "F*ckin" A" does that mean I believe the letter "A" actually copulates? Because I call you a "dog sh*t motherf*cker" does that mean I believe you are... never mind.

Last time my life was in danger I screamed one loud, long FUCK! Even if I do yell 'oh my god' it's a cultural habit. I really am trying to break it.
Jesus Tittyfucking Ass-slapping Bear-raping Christ. ~ I've got to remember that one.
7/30/2008 3:39:02 AM
This is a cultural artifact, not a profession of faith. Fail.
7/30/2008 3:40:08 AM
If you believe this constitutes faith then I really question yours.

...and that's what you get for having your religion dominate English-speaking cultures for so long.
7/30/2008 3:42:28 AM
Shut your fucking mouth. You've never been in a real life-threatening situation. Most of those situations happen so quickly, you don't have time to do anything but react. (if you can react at all)
7/30/2008 3:49:26 AM
Ummm...people also say "Oh my God, I'm going to kill you!" But that doesn't mean they want to actually kill someone. It's a fucking expression. So stop being intentionally stupid.
7/30/2008 3:49:33 AM
This is not completly untrue.
7/30/2008 3:50:32 AM
"whats the first thing people do when there life is in danger"
I say "Satan, save me"!
7/30/2008 4:09:20 AM
Does that mean I pray to the patron saint of "OH SHIT!!!!"
7/30/2008 4:14:38 AM
I don't think anyone believes they are saving someone from losing their soul because of a simple sneeze, and yet many still say 'bless you.'
Also, you fail.
7/30/2008 4:14:48 AM
Or else they say, "Holy Shit!" That doesn't mean they're dung-worshipers.

my comment was irrelevant, but i found it funny
7/30/2008 5:04:39 AM
Yeah, that's one of the things that results from growing up in a society in which "Oh my God" is uttered by anyone who's in trouble. These kind of things tend to rub off on you as a kid, and they can be hard to get rid of.
7/30/2008 5:26:57 AM
I don't say that... I say OH SHIT!!!!
7/30/2008 5:33:22 AM
Of course sneezing can kill you, why do people always say 'bless you'
7/30/2008 5:34:57 AM
Funny, I say OH SHIT! or OH FUCK!
