    You kiddin right. Shakespeare loved foul language, he just deployed it in a rather subtle and perhaps even more offensive way

    Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything. - Plato

      My favorite Bill Shakespeare bit of bawdiness, from "Taming of the Shrew", gottdammit:

      PETRUCHIO: Come, come, you wasp, iā€™faith you are too angry.
      KATHERINE: If I be waspish, best beware my sting.
      PETRUCHIO: My remedy is then to pluck it out.
      KATHERINE: Ay, if the fool could find where it lies.
      PETRUCHIO: Who knows not where a wasp does wear his sting? In his tail.
      KATHERINE: In his tongue.
      PETRUCHIO: Whose tongue?
      KATHERINE: Yours, if you talk of tales, and so farewell.
      PETRUCHIO: What, with my tongue in your tail?
