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.. ” 😀
