Bad language circa 1890’s

bad language circa 1890's

The Nonist has a great post about the bad language in baseball circa the 1890’s. Apparently it was so flithy that they had to issue Special Instructions To Players, but the best bit is they reprinted some of the most offending language:

“You cunt-lapping dog!”

“I’ll make you suck my ass!”

Genius, good to see things haven’t changed much! More about the document here.
