Creativity is everything.

I've decided to make a concerted effort to improve the quality of my swearing. Quantity really hasn't been a problem for me, so I think it's about time that I turn my attentions from expanding my profanity business to refining my product line.

For example, if I were satisfied with my previous uncreative approach, I might discover my pen missing and say, "Oh shit, where's my pen?" Functional, effective, but hardly exciting.

Moments ago, someone passed by my desk and walked away with the pen I'd just been using, and I'm delighted to say that the first words to pop into my head were, "Blast and hellfire! Pen thievery!"

I'm expecting to put this to good use in the next 24 hours as I look forward to my 3-month employment review.

So wait, did you actually vocalize your creative alternative to "Oh shit, where's my pen?" 'cause that'd 0wN.

Your public wants to know.

No, I didn't vocalize it (which I think means that it didn't 0wN). That's the next step.

Like how your l33t use of zeroes instead of Os is totally subverted by my font?
