"Why don`t you go outside and play hide and go f*ck yourself?"
That`s the best line since "This is Sparta".

oh, and this is actually so old, the authors may well have been around to witness the origins of the word itself :)

The signage thing is a myth. The origins are, as stated in this very, very old video, correct. It is from old low german, via old english, middle english, to english. Fekk (or fech, or one of several other spellings, there is no real concensus on the correct written form)is a Dorric dervitive of the same word, with the etymology of this form being traced to the Old English.

real history...doubt anyone cares, but al least its intersting:
There was a king in england who was a pervert among perverts, so much so that he demanded that no one was allowed to have sex unless they had his permission. probably so he can watch among other things. anyway to prove that they had permission they needed a sign posted out front that read:
Fornication
Under the
Consensus of the
King

Unsurprisingly, the Old English characters don`t display properly here. So here`s a link to the text, properly displayed:

About the Old English thing...it really is very different to modern English. As a famous example, here are the opening lines to Beowulf:

HWÆT, WE GAR-DEna in geardagum,
þeodcyninga þrym gefrunon,
hu ða æþelingas ellen fremedon!

Seriously, that is English.

Here is someone speaking those lines:

This stuff is so cool.

About the language thing...

Old English was a Germanic language. Hardly surprising, as the Angles were a Germanic people.

Modern English is very different, but it is based on Old English. Not on German, although the two are very similar (a modern German speaker can understand Old English far better than a modern English speaker). Norman French is another very large influence on modern English, as a result of the conquest in 1066. Latin is another, both directly and via the Norman French.

Modern English also contains some elements of Old Norse (a lot of fighting and a brief conquest in the late 10th century), old Welsh and Cornish (related languages spoken very widely here before the Roman conquest and remaining for centuries afterwards) and a seasoning of numerous languages as a result of the British Empire.

But most of the vulgar language comes straight from Old English, i.e. is Germanic.

If I recall correctly, this first appeared on a comedy LP.

Yes, an LP. It`s that old.

Hence the lack of video, although someone later made that excellent simple Flash animation for it.

It`s so odd that English is classified as Germanic...it`s 60% French.

Ok:
1. This says most english words are derived from German... don`t think that`s actually true believe it`s more latin than German

2. VERY VERY old BUT there`s a MUCH better video with some animation diagrams that is like 100x better than this! Here`s a link:
