I Said Fuck!


I've just gotten in trouble for swearing too loudly in the office (I said "Fuck").
The general manager is visiting for the day and apparently heard me.
No big deal has been made of it but I'm resisting not saying it again even louder, just for fun.
It is true that I sometimes have a bloody foul mouth, and let's face it, I really do enjoy swearing.

Sometimes you just got to swear because the situation demands it. I'm not foul mouth usually but I have my moments.

We have a Christian lady in the office who constanly uses the word frigging, I don't think she realizes she says it.

I used to work closely with several Christian types.
Consequently I ended up saying "jeepers" and "goodness me" instead of "fuck, fuck fuck".

There's a lovely song by Blink-182, and it goes like this:

Shit bitch fuck cunt cocksucker motherfucker tits fart turd and twat (repeat 3x).
I fucked your mom.

The song is called Family Reunion.

I don't know why people make a big deal about it anymore. The words become so common now that really it's lost most of its value as a proper swear word. It's kind of like saying DAMN IT! but a bit more strongly.

Wasn't it derived from the Old English word: Fornication Under the Consent of the King? Mmm... Or something like that??

*Old English meaning to..

actually, I believe it was a made up word in a made up latin poem.

Wikipedia's Entymology of the word "Fuck"

Very interesting. I had no idea.

Hey thanks, tweedledopey. :)

I illustrated a book about the English language several years ago and that book claimed that most of our swearing comes from old Dutch farming terms.

Red Egg said...

What's the book called??

I honestly don't recall.
I've got it somewhere at home and will try and dig it out.
It was a text for early high school English students.
The words it specifically referred to were "fucking, shit, cunt and bugger".
I recall this because the cartoon I created for the chapter was of a legal firm, the Offices of Fucking, Shit, Cunt and Bugger.
