    right here interior the united kingdom we distinguish between the interest "bloody" with its which ability of "lined with blood" and the interest "bloody" as a gentle expletive, as in "Bloody properly hurry up!" Few anybody is conscious that the interest "bloody" interior the latter experience is a corruption of "by using our woman", the female being the Virgin Mary, so there's a sprint of blasphemy approximately it. i could agree that as an expletive "bloody" is enormously gentle in recent times and that i detect the extra modern-day, option, expression "bleeding", as in "Bleeding properly hurry up!" a sprint extra offensive to my ears.
