Perhaps one of the most interesting and colorful words in the English language today is the word fuck. It is one magical word which just by its sound can describe pain, pleasure, hate and love. Fuck, as most words in the English language, takes its name from the German word frikon, which means whoopee.
In language, fuck falls into many grammatical categories. It can be used as a verb, both transitive (John fucked Mary.) and intransitive (Mary was fucked by John.). It can be an active verb (John gives a fuck.), or as a passive verb (Mary really doesn’t give a fuck.). As you can see, there are not too many words with the versatility of fuck.
Besides its sexual connections, this lovely word can be used to describe many situations as follows:
FRAUD: I got fucked by my insurance agent.
TROUBLE: I guess I’m fucked now.
DISMAY: Oh! Fuck it!
AGGRESSION: Fuck you!
PASSIVE: Fuck me!
CONFUSION: What the fuck?
DIFFICULTY: I can’t understand this fucking business.
DESPAIR: Fucked again.
PHILOSOPHICAL: Who gives a fuck?
INCOMPETENCE: He’s a fuck-up
LAZINESS: He’s a fuck-off.
DISPLEASURE: What the fuck’s going on around here?
REBELLION: Fuck the world.
It can be used in descriptive anatomy: He’s really a fucking asshole.
It can be used to tell the time. It’s fucking five-thirty.
It can be maternal: Mother fucker
It can be nautical: Fuck the Admiral
It can be political: Fuck IRS
It can open the door to wonderful relationships: Let’s fuck baby.
It can be used to enhance the meaning of the word: Fucking Beautiful
The mind fairly boggles at the many creative forms of use for this most functional word. How can anyone be offended when you say fuck? Use it in your daily speech, it adds to your prestige.
