  • Unfuck BRD on the Freedom Not Fear march yesterday (September 12, 2009).

  • I dropped some dilithium in the '70s. Wild.

    July 10, 2009

  • Let's stir it up again with some dilithium. Would the antimetathesis of 'fuck me stupid' be 'unfuck me smart'? The negative energy of this wormhole has put me in warp drive. So long and thanks for all the fish. Beware chameleoneology! haha tata

  • Ah yes, Full Metal Jacket. That's where I first heard this word. *goes all misty-eyed*

    Sionnach, that space where the babies go is full of unmatched socks lost in the laundry. I'm sure they can make a comfortable bed out of them.

  • "You had best un-fuck yourself or I will unscrew your head and shit down your neck" Quote from the movie "Full Metal Jacket"

  • ooh what have I started here :) thanks for all the hilarious comments... from unfuck to time lords, string theory, the vatican and george carlin, all in 3 days.

    July 3, 2009

  • Ever hear the George Carlin bit where he replaces the word kill with the word fuck? It's a fuckin' hoot!

    *can't type this mornin'*

    Okay, I'm all fucked out.

  • Ewarrior– what the unfuck! (WTUF) I never said defuck or what defuck (common to the north of us) You got fucked up in this list of comments so I thought it would be best to unfuck this comment and point out that dontcry contributed the word defuck

    please note ;)

    July 3, 2009

  • Well then, as strev says, 'I have to defuck this' Let me know if this worked dontcry.

    July 3, 2009

  • You can't -- but you might be able to defuck it. Hello?

    July 3, 2009

  • Excuse the fuck out of me! If I can't unfuck this shit, should I just fuck it?

    July 3, 2009

  • Correction: wordies are fucking friendly.

    July 2, 2009

  • Uhh... Wordies are friendly.
    ?! What the fuck?

    Sionnach: Will the Vatican, do you think, have the coordinates? *curious*

    July 2, 2009

  • ...and they say, 'wordies are friendly'. Thanks for the insight to fuck off

  • The antithesis of fuck me stupid, EWarrior, is surely fuck you stupid.

    July 2, 2009

  • I wonder if Steven Hawkings can explain, "Systems normal all unfucked up".

    July 2, 2009

  • See, these are the kind of practical difficulties people just don't think through when they try to mess with the space-time continuum. The most likely destination for any babies whisked out of existence as a consequence of unfucking is the same place where all the babies who used to be in limbo are now sequestered.

    I hope these babies understand string theory. Otherwise they are going to get lost.

    July 2, 2009

  • No, auntdracula, I think that's "What the fuck?"

    July 2, 2009

  • I'm not sure but is the antithesis of fuck me stupid, unfuck me smart?

    July 2, 2009

  • then, is unborn children the consequences of unfucking? like being pregnant for ever if you get unfucked?

    July 2, 2009

  • unfucking is the process by which friends of the opposite sex mutually endeavor to platonize their relations after sleeping with each other under questionable circumstances for a period of time no longer than one month.

  • What if you're a Time Lord? I bet the Doctor can unfuck.

    July 1, 2009

  • It's true, dc, you can't unfuck. You can unfuckup something, however, for which defuck seems to work very well. *ponders*

    July 1, 2009

  • Maybe defuck is better. I think that's the technical term for what the Geek Squad guy did to our new tv -- after it got all fucked up. He defucked it.

    July 1, 2009

  • i love this word

    and I can barely wait for the opp to say, "I have to unfuck this."

    I agree with chained_bear that it really should be unfuckup, but unfuck just rolls off the tongue better.

    July 1, 2009

  • You can not unfuck. Just as you can't unring a bell. You can try to make amends. That's about the best you can do.

    July 1, 2009

  • ... and "unfuck" isn't?

    July 1, 2009

  • to un-fuck-up ? that's a fucked up word :)

    June 30, 2009

  • Isn't this more like unfuckup?

    June 30, 2009

  • to repair, fix
