Damned Grammar!

I'm just posting this to show how AR I am about English. You know how people who swear usually swear at innocent, often inanimate objects while they are trying to cuss out someone? For example:

Shut off the effing TV, get out of the effing chair, climb the effing stairs and clean up your effing room and make your effing bed!

Technically, the chair, stairs, room and bed are innocent (the TV not so much) and grammatically have no reason  to be cussed at.

But I guess that's the difference between good grammar and poetry.
