"Potty-mouthed" is how Colleen described herself after seeing her 4.2 score on the Cuss-o-Meter. That’s
the percentage of her pages that contain "cuss words," and it seems awfully innocent to me. After all, the average across the blogosphere is 9 percent. But by plugging in a few URLs of other gardenblogs she discovered that our world is exceptionally clean-mouthed, with most scoring 1 percent or lower – til she discovered that GardenRant earned an "impressive 4." I take full
credit responsibility for that, by the way – my partners show commendable restraint in that department.
Commenters weighed in, some leaving little cuss-bombs to improve Colleen’s score, and it’s a hoot. (Check it out.) Colleen may have a brand new baby but it’s nice to see she still finds time for creative expression.
