The word fuck

Perhaps one of the most interesting and colorful words in the English language is the word “fuck”. It is the one magical word, which, just by its sound, can describe pain, pleasure, love and hate. 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 really gives a fuck) or a passive verb (Mary really doesn’t give a fuck); or an adverb (Mary is fucking interested in John), and as a noun (Mary is a terrific fuck). It can be used as an adjective (Mary is fucking beautiful). As you can see, there are very few words with the versatility of “fuck”. Besides its sexual connotations, this incredible word can be used to describe many situations:

Greetings “How the fuck are you?”
Fraud: “I got fucked by the car dealer.”
Dismay: “Oh, fuck it!”
Trouble: “Well, I guess I’m fucked now.”
Aggression: “Fuck you!”
Disgust: “Fuck me.”
Confusion:”What the fuck…?”
Difficulty: “I don’t understand this fucking game.”
Despair: “Fucked again.”
Incompetence: “He fucks up everything.”
Displeasure: “What the fuck is going on here?”
Lost: “Where the fuck are we?”
Disbelief: “Unfuckingbelievable.”
Retaliation: “Up your fucking ass.”
Telling time: “I have to work till 5 o-fucking-clock.”

It can be used in an anatomical description: “He’s a fucking asshole.”
It can be used to tell time: “It’s five fucking thirty.”
It can be used in business: “How did I wind up with this fucking job?”
It can be maternal as in: “Motherfucker”.
It can be political: “Fuck Bill Clinton.”

And, never forget General Custer’s last words: “Where did all them fucking Indians come from?” Or the Mayor of Hiroshima: “What the fuck was that?” And, last but not least, the immortal words of the Captain of the Titanic: “Where is all this fucking water coming from?” (just kidding but you can imagine them saying it all can’t you?). The mind fairly boggles at the many creative uses of the word. How can anyone be offended when you say fuck? Use it frequently in your daily speech; it adds to your prestige. Today, say to someone: “Fuck You!”
