8-25-08 The Unbelievably Not-Work-Safe Post About the F Word

Posted by Sean on August 25, 2008

You mean a certain presidential candidate who’s foreign policy consists of “Bomb bomb bomb, bomb bomb Iran” and who, if elected, will put the human race nicely on schedule for the fulfillment of certain Mayan eschatological prophecies in 2012?

And his name rhymes with “Fohn McFain”?

Well, Shanoah, I don’t know if most people have heard about the bird. But I know most people have flipped the bird (and most of them are driving in Las Vegas, but I digress).

Flipping the bird, of course, means, “Fuck you.” Ah yes, “fuck” – that most versatile, mythical and denegrated word of power in the English language. If “Muad’Dib” could split rock, then “Fuck” could split a planet [1]. And the wonderful thing is that there’s so many different ways to use the word “fuck”, as this classic Flash animation attests.

Soundtrack is possibly by Monty Python, although I detect a distinct lack of Oxbridge accents in it.

And since this is YouTube, someone’s naturally turned this into an AMV.

Waitaminnit… Monty Python? They’re British, right? And India used to be a British territory, right? Unfortunately, yes.

According to nileaotw, he got an audio file from a friend of an Indian English professor/stand-up comedian explaning the many usages of “fuck” to a very easily amused audience. That’s the source of this bemusing little movie.

Use “Fuck you” as a mantra? Hell, I already do that.

I did mention that this whole post is probably nor work-safe, right? Well, now you know.

[1] Do you know what this is a reference to? Then congratulations! You’re a geek.
