How to Use the Word ‘Fuck’ Correctly


The History of the Word Fuck and Other Expressions.(Click on the title to see the video).

It has also been used by many notable people throughout history:

“What the fuck was that?” Mayor of Hiroshima

“Where did all these fucking Indians come from?” General Custer (Verb/preposition colocation: to come + from – when referring to origin.  E.g. Where fo you come from? = ¿De donde eres?)

“Where the fuck is all this water coming from?” Captain of the Titanic

“That’s not a real fucking gun.” John Lennon

“Who’s gonna fucking find out?” Richard Nixon (to find out = averiguar)

“It does so fucking look like her!” Picasso (to look like = parecerse a)

“How the fuck did you work that out?” Pythagoras (to work s/t out = calcular) (“s/t” = something)

“You want what on the fucking ceiling?” Michelangelo

“I need this parade like I need a fucking hole in my head.” John F. Kennedy (Expression: To need s/t like you need a hole in the head = ¡lo único que me faltaba!)

Let me know if you would like me to give you any other examples – I have many!:-)
