One of the most interesting and versatile words in the English language today is the word "fuck". It is the one magical word which, just by its sound, can describe pain, pleasure, love, and hate. "Fuck" falls into many grammatical categories. It can be used as a verb, both transitive (they fucked the economy) and intransitive (the economy was fucked by them). It can be an action verb (who gives a fuck about poor people?), a passive verb (they really don't give a fuck), an adverb (He is fucking interested in football), or as a noun (he is a stupid fuck). It can also be used as an adjective (he is fucking ugly) or an interjection (Fuck! there is no jobs for all the young people). It can even be used as a conjunction (he laughs like an idiot, fuck he's also stupid). As you can see, there are very few words with the overall versatility of the word "fuck". Aside from its sexual connotations, this incredible word can be used to describe many situations:

Fraud: "I got fucked by the car mechanic."

Resignation: "Oh, fuck it!"

Trouble: "I guess we're fucked now."

Aggression: "FUCK YOU!"

Disgust: "Fuck the Cairo rush hour traffic."

Confusion: "What the fuck.......?"

Despair: "Fucked again..."

Displeasure: "What the fuck is going on here?"

Lost: "Where the fuck are we?"


Retaliation: "Up your fucking ass!"

Denial: "I didn't fucking do it."

Perplexity: "I know fuck all about it."

Apathy: "Who really gives a fuck, anyhow?"

Suspicion: "Who the fuck are they?"

Panic: "Let's get the fuck out of here."

Directions: "Get out, fuck off."

Disbelief: "How the fuck did they do that?"

It can be used in an anatomical description- "He's a fucking asshole."

It can be used to tell time: "It's two thousand and fucking one and we are still debating the veil."

It can be maternal: "He is a mother fucker."

It can be political: "Fuck the government"
