    That's great.
    I was told that that word's origins were in medieval England under some tyrannical king who didn't want the peasants to become to populated so he issued a decree requiring them to get permission to " Fornicate Under Consent of King". And it went from there.

    On the wrong side of the tracks.
    I'm not sure about the history, but in many places the word is used in place of commas, in the course of everyday conversation.

    I work with a guy and every other word that comes out of his mouth is f**k. No matter what the conversation is that's how he talks. I'm sure its just a habit, but I've always wondered if he can turn it off. Like does he go through the drive thru at McDonalds and say, "I'll have a f**kin number 2 large with no f**kin pickle or onions. Give me a f**kin Coke with extra f**kin ice, aaand f**k it, add some f**kin McDonaldland cookies too."

    It's an awful sounding word, no question about it.

    Speaking of that word, back in the mid 90s before the internet I would order tab books at my local Sam Goody. I went in and ordered the book for Van Halen - For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge. The girl was filling out the order form and there wasn't room for the full album title, so she just wrote the acronym - F.U.C.K. She wrote it, did a double take, and said, "well I guess I can't send that in now can I?"

    I watched a couple NZ series on Amazon Prime, and their dialect's pervasive use of "to root" (root, rooting, rooted) as a synonym really cracked me up
