It’s “Frack” not “Frick.” Or maybe that’s only on Battlestar Galactica.
Or “flick” as in “Hey you flicked my wife, motherflicker”.
flicking fraking fricking funny as usual though 🙂
Fricking is correct. It is derived from an ancient Germanic word of striking.
Know what I gave up for Lent? A centuries-old marketing ploy for the fishing industry!
“Frick” is probably a euphemism for “frig”, which is both a euphemism for “fuck” and a word meaning “masturbate”, derived from a now-obsolete meaning “rub, chafe”; the earliest known meaning is “move about, agitate the limbs”.
“Frack”, as used on B.G., is probably a euphemism for “frick”, with a nod to Frick and Frack, the stage names of a couple of Swiss skaters who moved to the U.S.; “Frick and Frack” now means something like “two people so much alike as to be indistinguishable.”
That’s frickin’ hilarious!
heeh this was a funny one 🙂
I remember this one next time i use the F.word, i say frick instead
Personally, I’m a fan of “friggin'”. I remember that I learned it from a comic book.
In the oul’ sod they use “feck” as a euphemism but it has other meanigns there so even if you are a priest you can get away with using it in speech. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Feck for an exhaustive explication.
Frick is used by the germans as in “frichdich” which means “fuck you”. It’s also a way of swearing in english without blaspheming like “gosh” instead of “god” or “darn” instead of “damn”. You can always tell a pansy-ass when they use words like “darn” or “gee whiz”.
This comic strip is classic! lmfao!
What about “fug”, like Billy Connolly uses around his kids.
Like “Shuddafuggup y’fuggin bassa”.
It’s “Fick dich” what means “fuck you”, exactly, but that is a little harder and lesser social accepted than the english version
(Hard to explain how to speak it … english language has no substitute for the german “ch”)
I must be “Fick dich” ‘cos I am a little harder and less socially acceptable.
Damn! I was so sure … why didn’t they vote for german when the U.S. Congress looked for a national language.
What did I say?
I vote for frig. The one I hear most often is “freaking.” However, it doesn’t play well as “go freak yourself.” Ya gotta hand it to Dick Cheney, however, as he sticks to the old “go fuck yourself.” You know Dick? He’s one of the “family values” American Republicans.
Don’t forget “frail” or “frel” from Farscape.
Isn’t “frick” used throughout the Austin Powers series of movies? As in “throw me a frickin’ bone here”.
I think you’re all out of your freakin’ minds.
Personally fond of “Eff”. As in “you’re out of yer Effin’ minds”
Of course, my all time favourite euphemism to date, I heard Bob Saget say “shiggles” on “1 vs 100”.
As if “shits & giggles” wasn’t funny enough…
bother and piffle.
so soft, so fuzzy, so friendly, and as i’m eccentric to get away with it good.
Elliott from Scrubs says frick. I prefer frick.
I want to cast a very late vote for “Frell” (from Farscape) please.
(Slowly working my way through all the old cartoons here. I’ll catch up eventually)
Nearly pissed meself at frame 1…
I have a problem with anyone saying any words are bad. I once pointed out to my socially religious sister that using euphemisms didn’t change the fact that her oldest daughter was cussing all the time, and that she herself was cussing very frequently. I’ll use the occasional shit or fuck, but am training myself to avoid the theist words hell, damn & god.
JONES, as they said at the old folks’ outing, it’s all shits and giggles until someone giggles and shits.
C Reese, why the Hell avoid the theist words? The damn things miff the heavens out of the god-botherers which is always good for a titter.
The most bad word I know is “tax”, followed closely by “semolina”.
I love a good euphemism. I think “fuck” is about the most euphonious word in the entire English language. That and “banana” for some strange reason.
The first two sentences immediately above are probably non sequitur which is a truly beautiful phrase.
