The Word Fucking Explained
When you want to tell someone to “fck off,” what exactly does that mean? Are you simply telling someone to go away because they are annoying you? Do you mean that you are tired of them bothering you? Or do you mean that you have taken it upon yourself to permanently ban the person from your life? Read on to find out more about this infamous phrase, and some interesting ways to use it when you want to.
Spend some time doing petty or unimportant things. 2 The first way to use “fck around” is to spend some time away from your mate doing something insignificant to your relationship. This can be a while – a few weeks or days, in fact – but it usually does the trick.
Fucking someone in the early days of English is a bit different. It wasn’t used so much as a means of getting someone out of your life, but as a way to disrespect someone and show a lack of respect for that person. You would probably say something like, “you’re a prick,” or “you’re just so damn self-centered.” However, in the earliest times, this was an affectionate insult that worked even better.
A book on the English language called The Book of Shitting was written by Cotton Spitts. In the book, Cotton Spitts explains the earliest instance of “fucking” as meaning to spank someone. According to Cotton Spitts, the earliest form of “fucking” occurred in the fifteenth century. However, he didn’t write about it. One story in the Bible recalls that a man named Gad went out one night to the forest to hunt deer, but when he got home his whole family was asleep except for him.
He picked up a rock and started to rock it against the tree he was sitting on. Someone who didn’t understand him thought that he was trying to make his penis rock hard. So Gad rocked his rod against the tree for about an hour and when he looked up at his family they were admiringly looking at him. This is the earliest instance of “fucking” in the English language and is still quoted in popular comedies to this day.
In India, on a boat tour across the Arabian Sea, a monk had a guest on board who happened to be a fan of Roman baths and decided to give him a wash. When the monk asked him what he’d done wrong, the man responded, “I didn’t stick my dick in her.” It’s funny because within a few years the word “cunt” had become associated with all forms of Christian worship and the Roman Catholic Church, which was built on a cult of cockroaches, used it to describe people who refused to take a bath.
