Why, you, @#$#*^%$#!!! ;-)
Even wonder where those words we sometimes euphemistically represent by symbols like "@#%$!!!" come from? Are they really "Anglo-Saxon?" Does the word "crap" actually come from some guy named Crapper? Find out the answers to these and much more in our new "Encyclopedia of Swearing: the social history of oaths, profanity, foul language..." It's in the reference collection, REF PE3724 .O3 H84.
