Did you know that the oh so famous vulgar word that has a version in almost all language in the world actually is speculated to have originated in 772 AD?

Yeah... it's a word as old as time.

According to historians, the word "fuck" was first used when an Anglo-Saxon king, King Offa of Mercia to be exact, granted land to a bishop.
On the decree, it was documented that the King granted the Bishop seven estates and one of them was named Fuccerham, a place where coupling and mating is condoned.

Hmmm... this is probably where they got the backronym (false etymology): Fornication Under Consent of King.

You might be wondering why I'm blogging about this. Let's just say it's one of those trivias that amused me.
