So the two very ... files in this message. FUCK - Our most versatile word. By it's stress and intonation it can describe many emotions and no other word can be used in such varied categories. It can be used as a noun (I don't give a fuck) as an adjective (It's a fucking beauty) and as a verb in it's transactive form (The game was fucked up by the weather) and intransitive (He well and truly fucked it up) as well as in its normal form (I fucked her good and hard). Everyday expressions show it's true versatility: Perplexity - I'll do it my fucking self Denial - I know fuck all about it Apathy - Who gives a fuck Admission - I fucking did it Greeting - How the fuck are you Fraud - I got well fucked over that deal Resignation - Oh fuck it Difficulty - That's fucked it Disdain - Fuck off Bewilderment - Who can fucking understand that? Derision - He fucks everything up Dismissal - Up your fucking arse Challenge - Who do you think you fucking are? Command - Do it your fucking self Query - Who the fuck did that? The word has of course, been used by some very famous personages, the mos= t notable being: Full steam ahead and fuck the icebergs Captain of the Titanic What a place to plant a fucking tree Marc Bolan / Bucks Fizz That's not a fucking real gun John Lennon The fucking throttles stuck Donald Campbell Who's going to fucking know President Nixon Who let the fucking woman drive Space shuttle captain We need a new fucking stand anyway Chairman Bradford City I'm fucking dreading our gas bill Hitler This isn't my fucking room Mrs. Tebbit Jesus? Who the fuck is he? Bishop of Durham Of course I can fucking fly Buddy Holly I said I could smell fucking petrol Nikki Lauda What the fuck was that! Mayor of Hirosima She's just a fucking secretary Cecil Parkinson I'm outside the fucking exclusion zone Captain of Belgrano Look at the fucking Indians General Custer You'll never get away with that fucker Lord Lucan's Nanny Is that fucking boat safe? Lord Mountbatten Who'd fucking shoot me? John F Kennedy Wait 'till they hear this fucker Guy Fawkes That's another good cloak fucked Sir Walter Raleigh It'll be all fucking over by Xmas Arthur Scargill It is my best fucking coat Michael foot Watch him, He'll have some fuckers eye out King Harold Who the fuck left the doors open? Captain, Herald of free Enterprise Who's nicked my fucking bike? Norman Tebbit No fucker uses proper English these days Prince of Wales. =DA=C4=C4=C4=C4=C4=C4=C4=C4=C4=C4=BF =B3 FUCK YOU =B3 =C0=C4=C4=C4=C4=C4=C4=C4=C4=C4=C4=D9 Perhaps one of the most interesting and colorful words in the English language is the word "Fuck". It is the one magical word, which, just by its sound, can describe pain, pleasure, love, hate. In language "Fuck" falls into many grammatical catigories. It can be used as a verb, both transitive (Jhon fucked Mary) and intransitive Mary was fucked by Jhon). It can be an active verb (Jhon really gives a fuck) or a passive verb (Mary really doesn't give a fuck); or an adverb (Mary is fucking interested in Jhon), and as a noun (Mary is a terrific fuck). It can be used as a adverb: (Mary is fucking beautiful). As you can see, there are very few words with the versatility of "Fuck". Besides its sexual connotations, this incredible word can be used to describe many situations: Greetings............"How the fuck are you?" Fraud................"I got fucked by the car dealer." Dismay..............."Oh, fuck it!" Trouble.............."Well, I guess I'm fucked now." Aggression............"Fuck you!" Disgust..............."Fuck me" Confusion............."What the fuck" Difficulty............"I don't anderstand this fucking business." Despair..............."Fucked again" Incompetence.........."He fucks up everything" Displeasure..........."What the fuck is going on here" Lost.................."Where the fuck are we?" Disbelief............."Unfucking believable." Retaliation..........."Up your fucking ass." It can be used in an anatomical description - He's a fucking asshole It can be used to tell time - It's five fucking thirty It can be used in business - How did I wind up with this fucking job? It can be maternal - as in "Motherfucker" It can be political - Fuck Tip O'Neil And never forget General Custer's last words: "Where did all those fucking Indians come from ?" Also, the famous last words of the Mayor of Hiroshima: "What the fuck was that ?" And, last but not least, the immortal words of the Captain of the Titanic, who said "Where is all this fucking water coming from ?" The mind fairly boggles at the many creative uses of the word! How can anyone be offended when you say fuck ? Use it frequently in your daily speech: It will add to your prestige. Today! Say to someone Fuck you! L.Kostiukevich
