WTF? Swearing at Work Inspires Teamwork

A study last Fall in the UK found that swearing at work can inspire teamwork. According to the study:

"apparent misbehavior can serve an organization well." Taboo language, they said, can manifest itself in solidarity that helps create a much more pleasurable and productive place to work

I'll need to remember to point this out to the next manager who becomes offended by my recurrent use of the one magical, multipurpose word, fuck.
