If you’re registered to vote, Samuel L. Jackson will enroll you in his Masterclass on that art of cursing

September 17, 2020

He may be a scholar, but is he a gentleman?

F**king register to vote, says Samuel L. Jackson. The swear-happy actor and producer, 71, is offering to teach an epic, multi-language course on the art of cursing, if enough people double-check that they’re registered to vote, The New York Post reports.

“Listen up — if 2,500 of you click a voting action below to make sure that you’re #GoodToVote, I will teach you to swear in 15 different languages,”  Jackson tweeted on Monday, September 14.

The tweet also includes a link to his page on voter registration website HeadCount, which offers red, white, and blue buttons that will help Americans to:

  • Register to vote,
  • Check your registration status, and
  • Make your “vote plan.”

Jackson is well-known for being among the Hollywood actors with the most prolifically dirty onscreen mouths—although a survey conducted earlier this year found that The Wolf of Wall Street star Jonah Hill beat Jackson for the top slot, according to the Post. While Jackson has sworn onscreen 301 times in his career, Hill has sworn 376 — mostly in the swear-heavy Martin Scorsese flick.

In addition to cussing on-screen and using obscenities to encourage Americans to vote, Jackson also produced a profane PSA in April. “Stay the f ** k home,” the Pulp Fiction actor said during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! in response to quarantine orders designed to help flatten the curve of the COVID-19 pandemic.

He also riffed on the book Go the F ** k to Sleep during the appearance, presenting the 2011 kids bedtime story as a public order that people should not leave their homes, including the verse:

“Stay the f ** k at home
Corona is spreading; this s -** t is no joke
It’s no time to work or roam
The way you can fight it is simple, my friends
Just stay the f -** k at home

Pretty, pretty good: Larry David narrates the ‘Go the F**k to Sleep’ sequel for grownups

September 20, 2019

When the news broke that Larry Davidbest known for his writing, producing, and acting on the TV series Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm—would be narrating Adam Mansbach’s latest profanity-filled “bedtime story for adults,” most people thought the casting choice was, umm … “Pretty, pretty good.”

Mansbach is the author behind blunt parenting favorites “Go the F**k to Sleep” and “You Have to F**king Eat.” The third installment in his series of “children’s books for adults” is “F**k, Now There Are Two of You” from UK-based Dreamscape Media—described as “an honest look at the reality of welcoming a second child,” according to a report by HuffPost.

David’s narration is a monologue from a potty-mouthed parent to a firstborn child about the new addition to the family. Given the comedian’s reputation as someone who isn’t overly sentimental about parenthood, it’s a match made in heaven, the news outlet raves.

“When I heard that Larry David was going to voice this book, I jumped up and down with joy—which was awkward, because I was getting a vasectomy at the time,” Mansbach stated in a press release. “David’s a f**king national treasure, and he did just as fantastic a job as you’d expect. I can’t wait for you to hear it.”

Among those who have previously narrated the books are actors Samuel L. Jackson, Bryan Cranston, Jennifer Garner, and LeVar Burton.

Both the print version and audiobook of “F**k, Now There Are Two of You” will be available on October 1.
