The Origin of Fuck

Skip to the rants (2)

When criminals were executed in olden Europe & beyond & not so olden America, their crime was written in an abbreviated manner, just the first letter of each word & nailed above their head.

Thus when innocent witches were burned at the stake, their crime was written above their heads.Usually witches were burned "For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge". Meaning the witch had carnal knowledge of the devil.This crime was abbreviated down for the stake.It has become English's most common slang term for sex.

  1. That's interesting, but I don't think it's true.

    The word fuck has cognates in Germanic languages, such as German "ficken" (to copulate), Dutch "fokken" (to breed), dialectical Norwegian "fukka" (to copulate), and dialectical Swedish "focka" (to strike, copulate) and "fock" (penis).

  2. The Origin of Shit.

    When manure for agricultural purposes used to be transported in wooden ships, the sailors quickly discovered that when it got wet it would create gases and sometimes even explode. To secure their cargo wouldn't get wet, they would ship it higher on the boat. As a warning they transported the manure in boxes labeled with the acronym for Store High In Transit: SHIT.
