I am genuinely curious now about the word "jack off"  I think that when used as a noun it should be hyphenated: You're a bastard, a jack-off, and a son-of-a-female dog.  And when pluralized it should still be hyphenated: You're all bastards, jack-offs, and son-of-a-bitches.

I don't think "son of a female dog" is hyphenated, and wanderer is correct that the plural is "sons of bitches."  The "son" is the main object, so you need to pluralize it.  "Son of a bitches" would imply that one son can have more than one mother, particularly of the female dog variety.

That's the dictionary entry, but it makes no mention of a noun form of "jack off."  I've decided that I think it would keep the same form as the verb if it were a noun.  What does lexy think?  :)

although, if they are all brothers then they could be "sons of a female dog."

If you say so.  But they would not be sons of bitches, as I assume you and your brothers have only the one mother...

Man, you guys don't get it.  I was not trying to pluralize "son of a female dog" correctly.  I was trying to have fun with language.  I guess I should remember to put smileys next to everything that is not a completely serious pronouncement about life.

I'm glad you weren't completely serious, superiorlobe, but that honestly doesn't matter to me.  I'm so bored that I'll start or join a discussion about it anyway ;)

I think I'll be better now, because my boyfriend and I just moved in together to a new apartment, so now I get to play housewife while looking for a job :)  Now that I have something better to do, maybe I'll relax in my role as grammar police.  ;)
