In podcast 87a, Dave mentioned an audio file going around about the various uses of the word "fuck": is it this one?
http://www.ipub.com/nate/diox/mp3/useofthewordfuck.mp3

No, I didn't put it online, just found it, and I've heard it before. It's sometimes credited to comedian Denis Leary, though it doesn't sound like him, and I can't find a solid connection. There's another soundfile in a similar vein, with an "Ebonics lesson" - also credited to Leary. Well, I thought it was funny, but I'm not exactly "politically correct" or "PC".

(Has there been a Word Nerds show on "PC" language yet? If so, George Carlin did a great routine on that, which is practically a PC lesson on its own. )

Hey, that's the very one!

So it's available to just anybody on the Internet now?

Well, heck, now I don't feel so special... Very Happy

This is the classic. A couple years ago on the Daily Source Code, Adam Curry played it and said it was something that had circulated among radio disc jockeys for years. When he played it, I had heard it before, somewhere, but I don't recall where.

Thanks for the link!

P.S. Not to seem prudish, but I'm going to edit the title of the thread, in case some unsuspecting youth or conservative school board member happens along and sees this forum by accident.

Yes, I'm a wimp. But I work for the public schools, and I don't want to get in trouble. Shocked
