Depends on the problem. Depends on the solution.

Some problems are worth swearing over; others simply result from demented imaginations.

Similarly, some solutions are so trivial, you *have* to cuss. ("D'oh!") And, some solutions (sadly, not many of mine) are so elegant, well, a well placed epithet is the only way to respond. ("Whoa!")

I forget where I first saw it, but the following quote comes to mind: "Profanity: the only language all programmers speak."
