"Fuck" is perhaps the most versatile and most-used word in the English language. It can relate anger, surprise, dismay, joy, and a variety of other emotions. It is also quite commonly used as a word of emphasis or description, often with comical effect. For some good examples, refer to "English as a Second Fucking Language," by Sterling Johnson, which can be found on Amazon.com. Also check out comic Dane Cook's take on the word.

Also, on a rather interesting note, I read somewhere that fucking once described an act in which a person who sowed/planted seeds in a field, and those particular people were referred to as fuckers.


The guy who quoted Monty Python had it wrong. I believe the quoted text is attributed to George Carlin.
Why don't you go play hide-and-go-fuck-yourself?

I don't mean to tell you how to do your job, but GO FUCK YOURSELF!

Fine, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, UN-fuck you!

Cartman: Don't call me fat, you fucking Jew!
Mr. Garrison: Eric, did you just say the F-word?
Cartman: Jew?
Kyle: No, he's talking about "fuck." You can't say "fuck" in school, you fucking fat-ass!
Cartman: Why the fuck not?
Mr. Garrison: Eric!
Stan: Dude, you just said "fuck" again!
Mr. Garrison: Stanley!
Kenny: Fuck!
Mr. Garrison: Kenny!
Cartman: What's the big deal? It doesn't hurt anybody. Fuck-fuckety-fuck-fuck-fuck.
Mr. Garrison: How would you like to go see the school counselor?
Cartman: How would you like to suck my balls?
Mr. Garrison: What did you say?
Cartman: I'm sorry, I'm sorry. Actually, what I said was... (picks up a megaphone) HOW WOULD YOU LIKE TO SUCK MY BALLS?
Stan: Holy shit, dude.

Word history
The obscenity fuck is a very old word and has been considered shocking from the first, though it is seen in print much more often now than in the past. Its first known occurrence, in code because of its unacceptability, is in a poem composed in a mixture of Latin and English sometime before 1500. The poem, which satirizes the Carmelite friars of Cambridge, England, takes its title, "Flen flyys," from the first words of its opening line, "Flen, flyys, and freris," that is, "fleas, flies, and friars." The line that contains fuck reads "Non sunt in coeli, quia gxddbov xxkxzt pg ifmk." The Latin words "Non sunt in coeli, quia," mean "they the friars are not in heaven, since." The code "gxddbov xxkxzt pg ifmk" is easily broken by simply substituting the preceding letter in the alphabet, keeping in mind differences in the alphabet and in spelling between then and now: i was then used for both i and j; v was used for both u and v; and vv was used for w. This yields "fvccant a fake Latin form vvivys of heli." The whole thus reads in translation: "They are not in heaven because they fuck wives of Ely a town near Cambridge."

Fuck is a very versatile word and can be a noun, verb, adjective, prefix, and suffix all in one word!

Etymology: There are many theories to the origin of "fuck". Some say it was first described in a poem in English and Latin code about people who will not go to heaven because they "fuck wives of Ely", but there are many other theories too, too many to list them all. The word "fuck" was probably first popularized in the 1928 novel Lady Chatterley's Lover, where the word "fuck" was used numerous times. In 1938, a song called Old Man Mose gained notoriety for saying "fuck" in it as well.

The phrase "fuck you" was first mentioned, however, in The Catcher in The Rye by J.D. Salinger.

As a verb, it mostly means to engage in sexual intercourse with the subject, or to destroy/mess up something.

As a noun, it usually means a person disliked by the speaker.

As an adjective (e.g. fucked) it means something destroyed or messed up.

As a prefix or suffix, it is used to create compound swears or insults. Examples are below.

Sometimes, however, it is just thrown around into sentences, proving its decrease in vulgarity among the years.

The more you abuse the word "fuck", the bigger your penis is. It's a proven fact.
verb: I fucked your mom last night, but on the way out of her room I fucked up the doormat.

noun: George is a stupid fuck.

Adjective: I went on 4chan last night and I saw a really fucked up picture of a dick on there!

Prefix: You fuckhead!

Suffix: Kevin is a douchefuck.

Filler: Today I went to the store and I was like, holy fuck, they had a sale on fucking chocolate bars! I mean, fuck, I bought like, 5 chocolate bars for 1 dollar! Holy fucking shit!

Fuck is an English word that, as a verb, literally means "to have sexual intercourse with," and figuratively means "to take unfair advantage of." It was at one time the most vulgar word in the English language, and its use would be considered déclassé in polite social circles. But the word has permeated the vocabulary of many social groups (such as lawyers, entertainers, and politicans) who would once have shunned it. Now it is often used simply to provide emphasis, as "very" or "really."

It is unclear whether the word has always been considered vulgar, and if not, when it first came to be used to describe (often in an extremely angry, hostile or belligerent manner) negative or unpleasant circumstances or people in an intentionally offensive way, such as in the term "motherfucker", one of its more common usages in North America.

Fuck is used not only as a verb (transitive and intransitive), but also as a noun, interjection, and, occasionally, as an expletive infix. The etymology of the word is uncertain (see below). Where the speaker feels that extreme emphasis is needed, it may be used several times in a sentence, e.g. "Fuck the fucking fuckers".

There are several urban-legend false etymologies postulating an acronymic origin for the word. None of these acronyms was ever heard before the 1960s, according to the authoritative lexicographical work, The F-Word, and thus are backronym. In any event, the word fuck has been in use far too long for some of these supposed origins to be possible. Some of these urban legends are:

* That the word fuck came from Irish law. If a couple were caught committing adultery, they would be punished "For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge In the Nude", with "FUCKIN" written on the stocks above them to denote the crime.

* That it came from any of:
o "Fornication Under Carnal/Cardinal Knowledge"
o "Fornication Under the Control/Consent/Command of the King"
o "Fornication Under the Christian King"
o "False Use of Carnal Knowledge"
o "Felonious Use of Carnal Knowledge"
o "Felonious Unlawful Carnal Knowledge"
o "Full-On Unlawful Carnal Knowledge"
o "For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge"
o "Found Under Carnal Knowledge"
o "Forced Unlawful Carnal Knowledge", referring to the crime of rape.
"Yit be his feiris he wald haue fukkit: / Ye brek my hairt, my bony ane" (ll. 13–14).
