Josh mentioned the other day an interview with Margaret Shulock, a writer of Apartment 3-G, in which she laments that Margo cannot curse in print. Well, I thought about how this could be possible while still protecting the children.
Here is my answer: Universal Comic Cursicons. Ms. Shulock, or any other comic author, can enter their character's curse words here and receive a comic speech code that we "adults" can then translate.
Update: ! stands for I within a word, but can be used for ING at the end of a word.
I don't know if any comic strip writers ever visit here (if any do, I'd like to thank them profusely for allowing me to blaspheme their images), but here's their chance to spice up the usually bland language in the comics, safe from the prying eyes of editors and the less mature.
Curse in the Comments: To use the cursicons in the comments, just precede (lowercase) letters with exclamation points, for example, !d!a!m!n. (If you have a blog that uses blogengine.net, email me if you'd like the extension.)
