Why Martin Luther Had Such A Foul Mouth

I have often wondered about Martin Luther's rather colorful language at times. Zwinglius Redivivus links a piece that explores and explains this subject at Martin Luther: The Potty Mouth Reformer.

Cutting to the chase there was nothing particular scandalous about such language in Germany and was a component ( strangely) of virility and masculinity .
