It is not an acronym- it is a very old word and does not stand for anything.
Here's some information about the word:
A friend told me the verb to F.U.C.K. has a meaning: "F" is fornication, "K" is king... and the other letters he doesn't know! I would like to know if that is true and, in affirmative case, the complete meaning!
Thanks a lot!
First of all, I agree with todl's reply. Second of all, variations include:Originally Posted by Yngwie
Fornication Under Consent of the King
Fornication Under Charles the King
Fornication Under Crown of the King
Fornication under Christ, King
Forbidden Under Charter of the King (a sign posted on brothels closed by the Crown)
For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge
Forced Unlawful Carnal Knowledge
File Under Carnal Knowledge (how Scotland Yard marked rape files).
In short, the claim that the word 'fuck' derives from an acronymic phrase, either 'For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge' or 'Fornication Under Consent of the King is false.

Tdol, I know my question might be irelevant to the whole subject at all, but still, I'm asking you to answer me for it.Originally Posted by tdol
What would be the exact translation for the word expression "Mind you"? I've checked in the dictionary, but I coulnd't figure out what exactly it means. Is it something like "unlike you"?
No, it's used to make a remark e.g.
-- That MacThing tastes terrible.
-- Mind you, that's not too expensive, and the toilets are clean.
Either you mitigate something, or you branch off, so to speak, the main topic of the discussion.
