    Bernie Mac became my comic hero on the Kings of Comedy documentary:

    I had a white guy tell me... he said, "Bern, why do black folks use the word 'mother-fncker?'" Let me break it down, what the word "mother-fncker" actually means. "Mother-fncker" is a word that black folks have been using for years. It's about expression. Don't be ashamed of the word "mother-fncker." Because "mother-fncker" is a noun: It describes a person, place or thing.

    One explanation for the origin of the word is:

    for
    unlawful
    carnal
    knowledge

    When individuals engaged in extramarital affairs, in early American history, they would be placed in the stockard in full view of the citizens of the town with the sign on the stockard.

    A couple of my friends were discussing the etymology of the queen mother of dirty words, and it came out that the origins are German, meaning "to strike." So one of my friends says, "Yeah. Back when I was in school some kids used to f**k me for my lunch money everyday."

    i've got a book devoted to it, called something like "the book of ****" or something. many, many, many theories of origin, and every particular use you could find for it.

    there was also a year or so ago an amusing flash page which was effectively the 'cliffs notes' version.

    ACTUALLY!!!!


    The word comes from old times in England. When people got married they were not allowed to have kids or have sex without the permission of King George (what king george, I'm not sure, how many were there anyway?) Anyway, when the kind granted tyhem permission they actually had to hang a sign on the door.

    That's an Old Wive's Tale.

    [Fnck] is a very old word, recorded in English since the 15th century (few acronyms predate the 20th century), with cognates in other Germanic languages. The Random House Historical Dictionary of American Slang (Random House, 1994, ISBN 0-394-54427-7) cites Middle Dutch fokken = "to thrust, copulate with"; Norwegian dialect fukka = "to copulate"; and Swedish dialect focka = "to strike, push, copulate" and fock = "penis". Although German ficken may enter the picture somehow, it is problematic in having e-grade, or umlaut, where all the others have o-grade or zero-grade of the vowel.

    AHD1, following Pokorny, derived "feud", "fey", "fickle", "foe", and "fnck" from an Indo-European root peig2 = "hostile"; but AHD2 and AHD3 have dropped this connection for "fnck" and give no pre-Germanic etymon for it. Eric Partridge, in the 7th edition of Dictionary of Slang and Unconventional English (Macmillan, 1970), said that "fnck" "almost certainly" comes from the Indo-European root *peuk- = "to prick" (which is the source of the English words "compunction", "expunge", "impugn", "poignant", "point", "pounce", "pugilist", "punctuate", "puncture", "pungent", and "pygmy"). Robert Claiborne, in The Roots of English: A Reader's Handbook of Word Origin (Times, 1989) agrees that this is "probably" the etymon. Problems with such theories include a distribution that suggests a North-Sea Germanic areal form rather than an inherited one; the murkiness of the phonetic relations; and the fact that no alleged cognate outside Germanic has sexual connotations.

    like i said...

    no point espousing one as the true and absolute, as there will never be a final resolution.
