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

Jesse Sheidlower

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.
