    The Internet is a good start and it saves time for me and others.

    Re: Something cracked me up.

    P*ssed is a swear-word now?
    Anyhow, I should now clarify that the term isn't, "I passed/pessed/possed/pussed myself".

    Re: Something cracked me up.

    I'm aware that p*ss[es/ed] isn't considered a swear word in AusE, but it certainly is in BrE and I'm sure I recall an AmE speaker confirming the same is true in that variant. I thought it best to err on the side of caution and add the asterisk.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
