It should also be noted that this magical word is a way to greet your friends
and this word is also used to rename the cities of this country.

As the lean singer from Twisted Sister used to say ( probably still does):

How the f*ck are you? Its nice to be back in San Di f*cking ego........

WHAT line ea

The referenced article reproduces (!?) a dialogue about a certain
English slang word that needn't be repeated here, and says that the
author is unknown. Since I heard this dialogue almost verbatim in
1977 or '78 in Stockton, CA, I think I can confidently say that the
author was George Carlin. Oh, by the way, there was much more of the
same, all of it excellent and perceptive and incisive as Mr. Carlin
always was in his earlier days....
