Most of us have our favorites when it comes to curse words. And while some of us might be a little harsher than others when it comes to our choice of swears, chances are that almost all of us have sworn once or twice.

My dad was a Navy man and I'm sure you're familiar with the expression, "cuss like a sailor". Well, that was true growing up in the Wolf house, so I was exposed to the finer art of swearing at an early age. In fact, one of the childhood memories that always makes me laugh is when I cussed for the first time in front of my father and he told me I "better watch my damn mouth."

There are many different curse words out there, but when it comes to the most popular, which one do Montanans go with?

According to Mental Floss, Montanans don't hold back from our favorite cuss word. In fact, we're dropping bombs—as in, the F-Bomb. Yep, here in the Treasure State our favorite swear is the F word.

Now, before some of you that are a little more refined and cultured get offended, keep in mind that Montana is cowboy country. We're a little rougher around the edges than other parts. Much of Montana is still the wild west and when you're working the land and livestock, well, sometimes you have to swear a little.

We aren't the only state in our region that likes to drop the F-Bomb, though. Washington, Oregon, and California all favored the F word as well. Over in North Dakota, they went with "hell," and down in Wyoming their favorite is "Schmidt" if you take every other letter out.

It seems they're a little more wholesome over in Idaho. The Potato State's favorite cuss word isn't really a cuss word at all, if you ask me. The favorite cuss word in Idaho?


So, let me ask you this: do you agree? As a Montanan, is your favorite cuss the F word? If not, what is it? Send us your favorite swear to our app chat.
