Every Key On Keyboard Prints The Magic Word

For "those days".

I'll spare everybody the demonstration, but they'd all be in capitals with exclamation points.

Perfect for those occasions when it seems overly time consuming to type each word manually.

       Every key produces "please" ?
MaxwellBuchanan, Feb 12 2018

       Awwww, that's nice.   

       No, the other one. I believe printing "please" a hundred times in a memo would be a cry for help.   

       You could also have every word be Buffalo and include punctuation keys. Little more challenging than just typing "FUCK!" over and over.

       In what social fucking circle that you voluntarily fucking participate in do you find yourself so frequently requiring fucking swear words so as to need a fucking shortcut macro for them?

       It would be an interesting exercise in social engineering to launch a brand of, say, chocolate called "Fuck", and subsidise it sufficiently to make it fantastically popular. Eventually, "fuck" would cease to have any utility as an expletive, much as the work "coke" did in the early 1900s.

       They're just syllables.   

       "Phuc" is a commonplace South-East Asian name. Just because it means something different in an Indo-European language is no reason to avoid it.

       What the South-East Asians do is, I believe, very much their own business. And Sturton says that in Thailand the word is used in much the same way as in England, but with more unexpected penises.

       It should be a doddle for software engineers to recognise that when someone is writing a missive and gets to the keyboard-mashing stage that inserting some choice vernacular would be welcomed.

       Now THAT is a good idea.

       I would get angrier if the computer started swearing at me.

       Isn't this what the F-keys are for?
Cuit_au_Four, Feb 24 2018

       Do you envisage the keys typing a single letter each in sequence or the whole lot at once?
