First F-Bomb Ever Dropped? See The First Recorded Use Of The Word "F*ck" HERE!

f bomb fuck word first recorded use

What was the first bomb ever invented? The F-bomb!

The origins of the F word aren't entirely clear, but it's thought to have developed as a curse in the latter half of the 15th century.

But the first known written use of the word may be in a manuscript (above) from 1528!

A grumpy monk (clergy were often the only people who could read and write back then) seems to have scribbled this note in the margin of a book, writing "fuckin Abbot."

Besides being Lou Costello's original, less popular catchphrase, the words are likely not meant to be literal but simply written out of annoyance at the writing's content.

That or he was writing the world's first and worst Cliff Notes! LOLz!

Etymology! Neat!

    This has been going around the academic circles and it seems that the penmanship is more closely related to the late 16th or 17th centuries. But it is quite comical that the "D" in front of the "fuckin" stood for "damned", but that would have been too outrageous to write outright!

    The origin of the word dates back to the 15th century. When someone was arrested "For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge" the constable abbreviated the phrase to FUCK in the arrest record.

    That could just as easily be "Fulk" which was a common enough name in the middle ages.
