MY ANSWER
Charles Bukowski

“why does he have to use words like that
in his writing?”

“words like what, mother?”

“well, like ‘motherfucker.'”

“some people talk like that, mother.”

“people he knows?”

“yes.”

“but why does he associate with
people like that?”

because, mother-in-law, if I only associated with
people like you
there’d be nothing to write about that
the motherfuckers would care to
read.
