It also has a magical ability to heighten the meanings of certain words--e.g., fanFUCKINGtastic!

The tourist shops in San Francisco have shirts with the "many uses of the 'F' word" on it. Quite amusing, the list is like the one on top.

I submit that "like" is far more versatile. Like, how many gazillion teenagers use it in every sentence they utter? Like, maybe all of them? Close second is "totally."


Never let the facts get in the way of a good story.

Hate to bring such an elevated, high-brow discussion down to base levels, but at the last count the most versatile word wasn't a four-letter one but a three-letter one...

...namely the word 'set' which apparently has 126 meanings as a verb, more than 50 as a noun and a handful more as a participle adjective.

My choice is, "dude".

It can be used in so many connections.

"Did you see me totally ace that gnarly tube?"

Response: "Dude!" (Meaning: "I am duly impressed.")

"I'm grounded for a whole week!"

Response: "Dude!" (Meaning: "I hereby express my sympathy.")

But, "fuck" is a pretty cool choice, too, dude!
