Four-letter words at work

I guess there's no more need for corporate retreats or office holiday parties, now that English researchers have discovered an unlikely source of team morale-boosting: swear words.

Supposedly, these office no-nos can boost camaraderie among co-workers and reduce stress.

So "sticks and stones can break our bones, but words will never hurt us" rings true, eh?

Anyone else prefer a morale-boosting happy hour instead? Swearing's fun, but it won't pay my tab.
