inner dork

Did you know the word "fuck" comes from colonial times? Yep, when people were punished they were put in the stockades and their crimes were listed above them so everyone knew what their crime was. (oh, the shame) Anyway, F-U-C-K was short for, 'For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge'

I thought it came from the Van Halen album - you mean "fuck" was around before 1991? I learn all kinds of cool stuff here. Thanks for the knowledge.

Pussycat and The Duck, yep, those are two other ones.

The Duck: yours (as I'm sure you know) comes from Roman times when he would stamp, or give approval to the brothels and they were allowed to be opened.

Wavslidn: I know it is shocking! But, I am always glad to help
