The F Word

Yes, I really am talking about THE F word. The big one. The mother of all swear words. The big kahuna of cursing. The pinnacle of profanity. The excellent expletive. Enough alliteration already? The F word is so handy that it can be considered the Swiss Army knife of cussing. The F word is used in so many contexts that it must be impossible for a visitor to our country to figure out exactly what it means when you get right down to it. We say F you! What the F are you looking at? Why the F would you do that? Are you F’ing crazy? Can you F’ing believe that? You F-er! Almost every usage of the F word implies anger, aggression or incredulity. All the ways we use the F word however, are completely ironic when you consider it’s literal meaning. That is really F’ed up isn’t it? The literal meaning of the F word is a less than tactful way to name a wonderful recreational activity. Why do we take the word that defines something as wonderful as a beautiful physical bonding, the act that creates life, or just a really fantastic thing to do and make it a word that embodies hatred, anger or how much of a problem something has become? Why not use another word that is more appropriate to the meaning? Why not replace the F word in our cursing with a word that really symbolizes something that everyone hates or gets angry about? I don’t know what word it should be. Any suggestions? If you don’t like my idea, then F you. And I mean that in the best possible way. Have a nice weekend : )

  4. I usually use the F word to describe something good as in that’s un-f’ing believalbe?” I love the word and it’s many useages but I try not to say it in front of the majority of people I hang out with. I save it for special occasions and the right friends that f’ing understand.
