Pete deserves humorous skewering over this. Thanks for sharing, Martin.

Townshend researching book about swearing at children

PETE Townshend is working on a book about how little children react when you 
tell them to f*** off.

Townshend said his fouled mouthed-outburst at a seven year-old girl and her 
subsequent reaction had 'exposed the dark netherworld of innocence and 

The Who guitarist, who swears at children as part of a campaign to prevent 
swearing at children, added: "I want to explore the way in which their faces 
change when an angry old man says 'f*** off' or 'go f*** yourself' or perhaps 
'what the f*** do you know, you seven year-old piece of s***?'.

"And then I want to turn it into a rock opera that will seem to last for days."
