Swearing with spices
My selection of photographs from supermarkets. I sneak in and arrange the spices into swear words, which makes me laugh. I have only found that Tescos has the required packaging to make this work, but if you know different please email me via the site and I will take your contributions. Only a few updates at the minute, but many more rude ideas floating around my head.

This is delightfully juvenile.

B3ta already did this.

I really appreciated the mildness of words like NIPS and SNOT – to my mind, they're funnier than any number of CVNTs (is there no herb or spice starting with U? That's a real shame) and SHITs by dint of their air of sniggering ineptitude. The only thing better than swearing is swearing badly.

Love it.

Curious, although I would consider broadening it to the entire grocery. I think you will quickly find it difficult to create new content otherwise, and honestly I find the concept of making any food perverse rather intriguing.

I love that as you are in Liverpool we're going to see more cuss words in British English! It's educational. Tosspot is my favorite so far.

Also, PS - despite having lived for a while in Britain, I don't even know what "pongs" means. But now I know it's dirty! Awesome :)

pong (Brit., informal) noun: a strong, unpleasant smell; verb [intrans.]: smell strongly and unpleasantly. DERIVATIVES: pongy adjective.
As in: "This fish pie pongs a bit. It's pongy. It's making a pong."

Yeah, not all the words will be disgustingly vulgar, just rude enough for to make me snigger to myself in the shop. I will try and include educational notes for people who aren't aware of some of the more british terms.
