That is really interesting! I wrote a paper at Penn about insults, but I didn't read anything about that type of cursing while I was doing research for it. This really isn't the same thing, but I met a girl from France while I was in England once who told me that when someone sneezes once you say "Jesus" (instead of "bless you"), when they sneeze a second time you say "Mary", when they sneeze a third time you say "Joseph", and when they sneeze more than that you say "Oh, just die already". I thought that was funny and random.

Kirstin, that's cool. You and my sister should really meet, being as you're both language-nerds! :)
