The Week contest: Crying foul

This week's question: The Wall Street Journal reports that stressed-out Americans' use of foul language has exploded during the pandemic, partly because Zoom calls from home encouraged more casual conversation. If a self-help author were to write a book of tips on how to express pandemic frustration through creative cursing, what profanity-free title could it have?
