The Four Letter Word.

This is my grand nephew Vedesh. He towers over me by at least half a foot and can easily beat me into pulp if it ever came to that. When I next visit Chennai again, I shall take a photograph with him to show my readers how larger than life he really is.
Two days ago, he posted this on his facebook page.
shut the fuck upSince over a thousand kilometers separate the two of us I decided to tease him a bit and since I could not resist the temptation to respond  we exchanged views as under. Please click on the image to get an enlarged version.
exchangeAs a grand uncle, I think that it is my duty to enlighten Vedesh about matters of great import.  Particularly since his best friend Suman and I had this exchange again on facebook.  I have no doubts whatsoever that Vedesh must have told Suman about my antecedents.

Screen Shot 2014-02-13 at 7.12.27 PMBong in that exchange means Bengali.  Suman is a Bengali and finds it fascinating that a Bengali had condescended to marry me.  Grihasta is another word that needs explanation which can be had here.

So, as part of their education, without further ado, I shall take them to a remarkable piece of writing on the world’s most popular four letter word which can be read here.

I shall now await reactions from these two young people who brighten up my existence by just being around for me.

    No mother, father or valentine? Saves a lot of cards. 🙂

  2. For me it would have been more effective if the last line was “So just shut up.” Or “So just suck it up.”

    ” Suman is a Bengali and finds it fascinating that a Bengali had condescended to marry me.” That is the bizarre fetish of the unhelpful type of bong, no?

  5. I had read other articles about the history of the word and knew it went way back. But I’m not opposed to the fuck-word. I am, however, opposed to silly euphemisms for it like “fudge” and “f-bomb.”

    Old, but unparalleled. And relevant here.
