As a person who has made a living cursing on the internet for the past six years, I am better at swearing than I am at literally anything else. Each month, for the price of a cup of coffee, I will send you a brand new swear or an essay on advanced swearing techniques. Use this forbidden knowledge to alienate your friends, dismantle your enemies, and express your displeasure at being short one cup of coffee this month. (Includes access to the latest Swear of the Month, plus the full archives)

If you are some sort of Uncle Pennybags type with five American dollars to just throw away every month, not only will you get access to all the above, but you will also get access to a new novel chapter every month.

About Cory O'Brien

Welcome to the Swear of the Month Club!

Since 2015, members of this illustrious club have received monthly essays on the nature, purpose, and art of calling people "fuckdads" on the internet.

The last twelve Swears of the Month are available free of charge at, but if you really want to get the full experience/help pay for my health insurance, you can SUBSCRIBE right here on this very website to get access to a whole HEAP of swear-related content. (Also non-swear related content. This Patreon has gone through quite a few changes over the years).

But who am I, and what the fuck do I know about swearing? Why, I'm Cory O'Brien, author of Zeus Grants Stupid Wishes: A No-Bullshit Guide to World Mythology. You can find five years worth of my foul myth-based language over at my old website  Myths Retold. Some have described it as "a sign of the debased intellectual character of our age." I describe it as my swearing resume. I also write other stuff, including video games like Monster Prom, surreal artist collabs like Face a Week, plus a couple of sci-fi novels that higher level patrons can get access to here. 

I joked about it above, but donations through this website are literally how I afford health insurance, so thank you so much to everyone who has contributed and supported me over the years. And thank you for reading. Even if you don't plan to give me any money at all, I am grateful for your attention because I love attention.

$266 of $500 per month
If I somehow make it to a thousand dollars a month, I will start doing some Swears of the Month in video form.
