Just found Maledicta Press Online on Metafilter. There is Maledicta, the International Journal of Verbal Agression.

Maledicta discusses language honestly: no dashes, no asterisks, no moralistic pussyfooting. Our motto: "They say it -- we print it."
This brings back some memories. I remember I was REALLY into the study of maledicta in High School. I wrote about it online on The Source and almost got kicked out. A good curse involves religion, scatology and sex. The following is the curse that I posted I guess 20 years ago. Please don't read the rest of this post if you are easily offended.

Oh God, quit slapping me in the face with your cock all covered in shit from fucking Jesus.

I actually don't remember where this one comes from... and... I don't remember exactly why I decided to post it considering how many people it offended. ;-p

Cute =)

Someone posted this idea in a trackback, but do you think this item will really get me bannded from some search engines? From Google?

I don't think it will get you banned, but just FYI, "quit slapping me in the face with your cock" has now become a standard AIM greeting in certain circles. (Often followed by "I wouldn't mind, except that it is all covered in shit on account of you having been fucking Jesus.")

Ha! Really? So I was a maladictical pioneer?

(I think that "certain circle" may only extend as far as me and Anil. And it only happened once. But still ...)

Who is this stewart person who's using my name?

Quit slapping me in the face with your comments.

-- It's from me, the editor and publisher of "Maledicta." I found this Hungarian blasphemy years ago and translated it into English. It has been quoted by several hip magazine.

Holy Shit! Nice to meet you. Amazing.
