Seriously, go get it, if you're of a mind. It looks wonderfully well-designed, and I'm certainly planning to give it a try.(H/T: The Verge)

The usual suspects are all out, as are the names of rival phone makers though you can say "iPhone" for some reason.

Why you'd want to have something ribald or explicit written on your phone is something I don't feel qualified to answer at this point, but please accept my mystified condolences if you'd been hoping that the Moto X was the answer to your profanity-laced prayers.
