F*ck seems to be one of the more popular words used in Deadwood. Oh sure, theres the occasional c*cksucker reference but f*ck is far more popular. Ever wonder how often it's uttered? Here's (http://thewvsr.com/deadwood.htm) the answer. Someone had a lot of time on their hands to figure this one out.

That show is so stupid. Everyone knows the word f*ck wasn't even invented back then.

Seriously. Did John Wayne or Jimmy Stewart ever say f*ck? Of course not. They used hell and damn...those were the only curse words invented back then in America.

I think the word was invented by an anonymous Chiefs fan in the early 80's after Carl drafted Blackledge.

I got it....go jump in your captured Klingon ship, fly it around the sun to go back to the late 1800's, beam down and tell some of those cowboys to go f*ck themselves. Report back if they knew what the word f*ck means, if they don't rip your jaw off your head.

I think i have actually heard the exact f*cking opposite. I think it was on some making of clips on HBO that some f*cking c*cksucker made.

Come on man. Everyone knows the Puritans founded America and they didn't like naughty words like f*ck. Therefore no one used it for a long long time, like, until television and books.

Dumbasses. :rolleyes:

I can't remember where I saw it, but IIRC the word "f#ck" goes back (at least) to the 1600s.

And yes, they used foul language early and often back then.

it just wasn't allowed in movies at that time, more or less (does the word censor have any meaning to you?)...

but people were saying it way before then, and it's not farfetched to think that people in deadwood spoke that way...

of course, i wouldn't know...

i wasn't born until 10 or fifteen years after the black hills gold rush days...

You once again prove that you're a ****ing idiot.

The earliest appearance of the current spelling was in 1535 -- "Bischops ... may **** thair fill and be vnmaryit" [Sir David Lyndesay, "Ane Satyre of the Thrie Estaits"].

Bob Dole can guaran-****ing-tee you it was common slang back in the 1800's. It's just not well documented because people were a lot more ****ing concerned with being polite back then.

Of course the F-word won't work here, so you will have to change it in your browser. Gives the actual history. Seems it's been around since the 1500's, of Germanic origen, and was not widely used for a long time.

Found it on Wikipedia as well, seems it became vulgar in the 16th or 17th century...
