An acronym for the phrase What-cuh-cuh-fuck.

Though it's true orign remains unknown, it is known that this term was coined in Canada, derived from a bible camp t-shirt.

This phrase is used as an exclaimation to a confusing, ridonkulous situation. It is the next tier up from wtf.

Extra "cuh"s can be added to increase the intensity, thus implying a stutter.

Charles "Bird" Parker Jr. (August 29, 1920 – March 12, 1955)was an African-American composer and jazz alto-saxophonist. He is considered a great jazz innovator and revered, by many, as a musical genius.

He and fellow musician, Dizzy Gillespie, were the founders of a new sub-genre of jazz music, Bebop. Many of Parker's songs have become jazz standards and are widely incorporated into many current jazz musicians' repetoires.

Parker's was a complete virtuoso on his sax. His style of playing way fast, lyrical, and rhythmicly complex and his popularity brought an onslaught of copiers who transcribed and played his solos note-for-note.

He, like many musicians of his time, was a chronic heroin user and it was this activity and the effects of heavy drinking that ultimately led to his demise in 1955. News of his death travelled quickly through the jazz community and soon the phrase "Bird Lives" appeared as graffiti across New York subways.

His music has inspired many great musicians such as John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Jaco Pastorius, and Yo-Yo Ma.

Ella Jane Fitzgerald (April 25, 1917 – June 15, 1996), aka Lady Ella (The First Lady of Song) is probably one of the most influential female jazz vocalists of the 20th century, along with Sarah Vaughan and Billie Holiday.

Well known for her pure tone, 3-octave vocal range, intonation, and lyrical phrasing, Ella Fitzgerald proved to be a very gifted vocalist.

Her improvised 'scat' singing, was almost horn-like, and is revered by many of today's jazz vocalists as pure genius.

Lady Ella led a troublesome life after her mother died in 1932. Having lost both her parents (her father left shortly after she was born), Ella's schoolwork lagged and she began to skip class.

After being caught by th police, young Ella was sent to a reform school, but soon escaped and became homeless.

Ella Fitzgerald was discovered at the Apollo Theater in Harlem, New York when she was 16 years old. After winning a draw to compete in one of the famous Apollo Amateur Nights, she opted to sing a Hoagy Carmichael tune in stead of her original act of dancing (she was intimidated by a well-known, local dance act) The crowd loved her performance and she won first prize.

She was hired by Chick Webb (jazz drummer) and the rest is history.

Some of her best work includes her recording of 'How High the Moon', her series of standards from the Great American Songbook, and her duet recordings with Louis Armstrong.

Ella Fitzgerald died in 1996 of complications from her diabetes.
