While we're on the subject…

Posted on Saturday, April 14, 2007 in Something to think about

This is a soundbyte I downloaded a while ago, listed as ‘Monty-Python: The definition of the word ‘fuck”. It’s narrated by an american bloke, with Vivaldis ‘Four Seasons’ playing softly in the background, if you can imagine this as you’re reading it.  I love it.  Also it’s a pretty great way to learn english grammatical terms…

Perhaps one of the most interesting words in the English language today, is the word ‘fuck’.  Out of all the english words that begin with the letter F, ‘fuck’ is the only word that is referred to as the ‘f’ word.  It’s the one magical word.  Just by its sound can describe pain, pleasure, hate and love.  ‘Fuck’, as are most words in the english language, is derived from German, the word ‘frichen’ which means ‘to strike’.  In english, ‘fuck’ falls into many grammatical categories:

As a transitive verb, for instance: “John fucked Shirley.”

As an in-transitive verb: “Shirley fucks.”
Its meaning is not always sexual… it can be used as an adjective such as: “John’s doing all the fucking work!”

As part of an adverb: “Shirley talks too fucking much.”

As an adverb enhancing an adjective: “Shirley is fucking beautiful.”

As a noun: “I don’t give a fuck.”

As part of a word: “Abso-fuckin-lutely” or, “in-fuckin-creadible.”

And, as almost every word in a sentence: “Fuck the fucking fuckers!”
As you must realise, there aren’t too many words with the versatility of ‘fuck’, as in these examples describing situations such as:
Fraud; “I got fucked at the used car lot.”

Dismay; “Aww, fuck it.”

Trouble; “I guess I’m really fucked, now.”

Aggression; “Don’t fuck with me, buddy.”

Difficulty; “I don’t understand this fucking question!”

Inquiry; “Who the fuck was that?”

Dissatisfaction; “I don’t like what the fuck is going on here.”

Incompetence; “He’s a fuck-off.”

Dismissal; “Why don’t you go outside and play hide-and-go-fuck-yourself?!”

I’m sure you can think of many more examples.  With all of these multipurpose applications, how can anyone be offended when you use the word?
We say, use this unique, flexible word more often in your daily speech!  It will identify the quality of your character immediately.
Say it loudly, and proudly!

    I am delighted to finally see the results of that very expensive convent education coming out at last.
    So that is what they were teaching you all those years?
