In case you weren't aware, deaf people swear just as much as the rest of us - they're just able to do it a little more discreetly. YouTube channel Cut has helped us all join in on the fun by posting a video in which 7 deaf people show how to say all of your favorite curse words in American Sign Language, and it's so much more fun than just flipping the bird.

Some of the 'colorful terms' involve pretty straight-forward hand charades, and probably shouldn't be acted out in public places. Others, however, are more subtle, and could be mistake for a variety of meanings. Finally, some involve manually spelling out the word using alphabetical signs, deciphering it completely to the untrained eye. It's basically the most useful piece of education you're likely to get today (unless you feel like checking out more Cut content).

Watch the video for yourself below, and don't worry - we already know you're going to try them all in front of your computer screen. Just make sure any deaf family members have left the room first.
