Who Dropped the F-bomb? or Go Fug Yourself


Had to share a link with you. It’s a hilarious short blog post from Ursula K. LeGuin on the F- and S- bombs in writing.  I ROFL-ed when I read it, especially this part:

But Norman Mailer in The Naked and the Dead was forced to use the euphemistic invention “fugging,” giving Dorothy Parker the chance, which naturally she didn’t miss, of cooing at him, “Oh, are you the young man who doesn’t know how to spell ‘fuck?’”
