When should a man swear?

Man is not only a reasoning but a swearing animal.  Sometimes his feelings are expressed audibly and at others they are so deep down in his nature that nothing less than a volcano would thrust them to the surface.  If man should swear at all, when should that time be? The church is silent on this important matter and the law gives no sanction to cuss words.  Stovepipes are provocative of feeling, but corns are far worse.  Wives should see that their husband’s corns are kept down.  This may be done quite easily, painlessly, and with absolute certainty by Putnam’s Corn Extractor.  Beware of flesh-eating substitutes offered for Putnam’s Corn Extractor.
