Most of the swear words that I know originated from my father.

I can't say the same. He was a cranky old bugger but rarely swore. Didn't think it was polite. "Jesus wept!" was his favourite expletive.

Kind of self-propagating  

It's interesting to see the kind of swear words the crop up in different parts of the world. German seems to have many excremental or anal swear words while Russian swearing is strongly sexual. We who speak English are much more versatile.

The ones I didn't learn from my Father and brother? I heard in the service ! Not that I use them any more but it looks like some got passed to my son but I blame the Marines for that!  :D

We pick them up by osmosis. I picked up most of mine from the kids at school. Back in the 1940s and 50s even innocent words like "bloody" weren't acceptable in mixed company.

I learned some from the old man but he's right ! I learned words in the Marines that I never knew existed. I'm learning to control them better as I don't want my daughters picking them up from me !  :D

They say the apple doesn't fall far from the tree, Rooster. Sometimes it gets to be even more colourful than the original apple. :)
