Since when is a 3-letter word offensive?

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Three Letter Words.”

An entire post, without using three letter words.
Really? I could understand “An entire post, without using four letter words”.
Somehow, I didn’t know there were offensive three-letter words…
My education in that ‘school of life’ seems to have been somewhat deficient!

I cannot even think of a single offensive, rude, crude or rough three-letter word.. Where do I find these armaments in one’s vocabulary of insults? Is there an Internet site that lists them? Probably. However, this family’s Internet Service Provider screens every website address before letting it download to computers here, so I won’t be able to investigate by that channel. What about an Ebook? From where could I purchase a copy of “Vulgar Three-Letter Words”? If, that is, it exists. Which I doubt.

Whoever is able to tell me a source of such an educational treasure, please leave a comment below to tell me what it is? Also, where I will be able to purchase or download it from? Thanks, y’all!

  1. There are some three-letter “bad” words, but the purpose of the Daily Prompt exercise was just to see if it could be done, that is writing an entire post without three-letter words. Such as was, has, her, his, the…. it isn’t easy, but it can be done. You did it here, and I did it in my post yesterday.

    Not using the 3-letter words forces creative thinking, finding other ways to state facts and fiction. I thought it was a valuable exercise.
