Fuck: a verb, noun, adjective, and even an adverb. I think. The adverb part. The rest I'm sure of. I don't believe this one has been parsed out in any of my style manuals.

Our baseball team, the Grays, is interesting. Its players are short and don't hang around after the games even if they win, which is the usual case. The team appeared one day after there was a flash of light up in the hills near the ball park. We hadn't had a team in years so the city was excited to have one again.

Also, they all wear sunglasses even for night games. Odd sort of chaps, but they win ball games and the umpires ALWAYS give them the benefit of a doubt even if a doubt isn't there.

Yes, "For Fuck's sake" has pretty much replaced "For God's sake" in the modern vernacular. Therefore, one might say "Fuck" has replaced "God". As a non-theist, that's okay with me. I look forward to the day when our paper money bears the motto "In Fuck We Trust" and our children pledge allegiance to "One nation, under Fuck".

The word "fuck" in the expression, "Oh, for fuck's sake", is not an instance of the act being committed, but a generic form describing the spirit of the expletive. There are multiple postings on the Internet about the incredibly rich variety of parts of speech filled by the word "fuck". This particular form is one of the rarer variants, describing the general sense of impatient antagonism precipitated by competence being boondoggled or thwarted by stupidity.

As every intelligent being has experienced, trying to get something done, or solved, when countered by the popular elements of stupidity (including its subclasses bureaucracy and pigheadedness), produces a collision of energy waves in the mind which then explodes, leaving the beleaguered individual in the state of mind referred to by the expletive "FUCK!".

That one four-letter word thus is imbued with an immense cargo of analysis, planning, hope, frustration, indignation, exhortation, expostulation, and perjorative stoicism. It is in celebration and acknowledgement of this most useful of terms that the expression, "Oh, for fuck's sake" has come into widespread acceptance.

It's "for fuck's sake", assuming there's only one fuck to whom the sake belongs. It would be "for fucks' sake" if there were a orgy going on.

I am on the horns. Is it 'for fuck sake' or is it 'for fuck's sake'? Don't talk about my use of ' versus ". No time to get too pedantic and all grammarly on my ass. This is serious stuff and I need an answer RFN.

Amos, just because you didn't get 55,000 is no reason to stay in your room and sulk in the corner. Mom says that if you know what's good for you you'll be sociable even if you are a great recording artist and well-know author.

Oh for F sake! George is mowing again. That's four times in three days. Hmmm... I did hear a hedge trimmer this AM so maybe he is mulching the trimmings? Maybe I am just becoming a cranky old... nahhh... George is losing it.

BTW, keep an eye out for coons. I found coon crap on the back steps landing day before yesterday. Never touched my tomatoes, though. I guess it knows what constitutes an act of war and I have ordnance specifically designed for critters of ill dispute.

Mom! I have a rhetorical question:

Why do people on Craigslist try to sell mounted fish and deer heads? I thought the idea of having a stuffed animal hanging on the wall was to commemorate one's own achievement in catching the fish or shooting the deer, not to decorate the wall with other people's accomplishments.

Presumably, if there are people attempting to sell such things, there are also people willing to buy them. Who are these people? How do we make sure they never run for public office?

I used to write entire short stories in Southern US Trailer Park Gibberish, but no longer do so. I was afraid that if I spent too much time in that world, even if only in my imagination, I'd start drinking cheap beer, chewing tobacco, and doing things prefaced by "Hey y'all! Watch this!"

Ya know, he might just need a lead pill more than a hemp collar. Gonna make some palaver about that.

I'd love to help but I am all outta giveafucks. My daily quota got used up talking to braindeads on the phone. The last one... I tried to arrange a time for a quote on a paving job and I tried to tell this guy that I was not available from 9:30h to 11:30h every day. He tried to tell me that I had to be present so he would know what I wanted done before he could quote. Over and over. Finally, I said, you call me before you come so that you know I will be home. Yes. Yes, I *AM* serious. Before that, I called about another job... brick chimney repointing. Got an answering machine. Leave your name, and so on, and then he sang a verse from the Sweep song in the Mary Poppins movie. Yes. Yes, I *AM* serious. I think he has breathed too many fumes from chimney sweeping. I even called back and recorded it on my digital recorder as evidence if the guys in the white coats came for me. I got a half dozen stories from just the last two hours.

Not that anyone givesafuck.

In German, haie is the plural for hai, meaning "shark". But I don't suppose that's relevant to Amos's poem since sharks are deathly afraid of slow lorises. In fact, the survival kits in lifeboats on all modern cruise liners include slow lorises which act as shark repellents. There has never been a single documented case of a shark-related fatality among shipwreck survivors on, or swimming near, a lifeboat with a slow loris on board.

Tigers, on the other hand, are not the least bit afraid of slow lorises and consider them a delicacy. It wouldn't have done Yan Martel's Pi a bit of good to have a slow loris on his lifeboat.

haie: French for "hedge" or in sports "obstacle" or "hurdle." Can also mean a jumping obstacle in equine sports. Can also be used to refer to the spectators of an athletic event.

I'm not quite sure how this fits into Amos' poem, but I am certain that I shall have it exposited sometime this afternoon or evening.

Hmm...I am reminded both of Keats' "Ode on a Grecian Urn" and Service's "The Killing of Dan McGrew."   There are some echoes of Milton's "Il Penseroso" and his "Areopagitica." Vint Cerf and Robert Kahn's seminal (or ovarial) "A Protocol for Packet Network Intercommunication" must also be considered.

Cerf/Kahn write "In a typical packet switching subnet, data of a fixed maximum size are accepted from a source HOST, togethcr with a
formatted destination address which is used to route the data in a
store and forward fashion." Amos says, "We trust him to process/
Without apprehension" which is a certain reference to the transport layers of IP as well as the MAC and LLC layers in the Data Link Layer. Hmmm...a PhD in English, without all of the classroom and dissertation nonsense, awaits when I finish this exposition....

AT&T, T-Mobile, Meteor, Verizon, O2, and various other companies announced yesterday that slow lorises were being phased out in favor of
genetically modified Naegleria fowleri, a type of amoeba. While certain minor drawbacks to the use of this organism are recognized, the small -- submicroscopic -- size will eventually permit cell phones to be implanted directly into the cranium of users.
