It seems during the middle ages in Europe, due to the population explosion amongst the poor people, making love was prohibited unless it was explicitly permitted by the Government/King. Since, whenever someone wanted to get cozy they needed to put up a sign saying ‘Fornication Under Consent of King’ which equals to FUCK.

No idea, whether this is actually true. It’s amusing though!! 😉

One of my friends asked me yesterday, “What the F**k are you trying to prove with all these word history blog posts?” My answer – “Nothing… Been a bit busy to actually post interesting stuff… So, am just pulling out stuff that have been in drafts for many months now and posting it.. ” 😀

    This goes back about 12 years and is still untrue. For the whole story and origin of this urban legend, see http://www.snopes.com/language/acronyms/fuck.htm

    Snopes is a great place to verify any hoaxes, scams, and urban legends that exist today. If you think it sounds too good to be true, check it out on snopes 🙂
