From Tallulah Bankhead.
It was a gentler world fifty years ago when Norman Mailer wrote his famous book, "The Naked and the Dead." You couldn't say the word 'fuck' in print. So in his book, he used the word 'fug' instead.
One evening at a party, Mailer met the legendary legend Tallulah Bankhead, who said to him "You're the young man that doesn't know how to spell fuck."
I say this amid a torrent of passionately fuck-laced exhortations about doing better work.
Actually pretty fucking inspiring.
