Vulgarity is no substitute for wit. Amirite?

VERY TRUE!

Don't expect much respect here though. It seems that word doesn't exist.

But one can be vulgar and witty at the same time. Still, that's not how it usually works out.

Sadly varying degrees of vulgarity have suplanted a great many things in life now besides speech. Vulgarity shows a lack of wit.

There is a profession called "shock jock".

The modern term means jesting, but originally "wit" meant knowledge. In a court trial, somebody who had knowledge in the case might be called to give his wit-ness. The resemblance between wit and humor has been lost.

They can exist together in proportion, but if you require vulgarity to get your point across, you are lacking.
