The Language of Afghanada: Talk About Axe Backwards!

I happened to overhear today's episode of CBC's Afghanada. Isn't it interesting the way they rather coyly avoid offending their listeners by using "friggin'" or "freakin'" instead of the real word those soldiers would be using while at the same time freely using "Jesus" and "Christ" as expletives. What does that say about today's values?
