Huh? Did I miss a message or something?
Just an allusion.
...a book the existence of which modesty evidently prevented Jesse Sheidlower
from acknowledging in his response to the original query.
THE F WORD, ED. JESSE SHEIDLOWER
The F Word
You haven't heard it on the air, now read the book! Here, in one
convenient, comprehensive volume, is the complete story of the word
still considered the most vulgar utterance in the English language.
It's the word that landed Lenny Bruce in the slammer, the one syllable
expletive that Nixon so often deleted, the verboten syllable that's
gotten many an FMU DJ thrown off the air! Organized like a dictionary,
The F Word examines all the usages and permutations of "fuck," from
the diaries of World War I soldiers to the internet, complete with
examples and citations for each! Learn what FUBIO stands for! Learn
the derivation of "going bugfuck crazy!" You'll never fuck up "fuck"
again! 230 pages, paperback from Random House.
