So, how many of the results looked like this?

"Ur fukin secksy az shit, bich! Want 2 com 2 mi plas?

Oh god, my brain hurts. I'm sorry brain! Please forgive me for this horrid crime against the English language ;.;

More like fucking malamantastic. (Which is a malamanteau of malamanteau and fantastic).

Well, I was going to make a post, but when you start making a ton of errors, then it is usually not a good idea

Now excuse me while I fucking sleep like shit

In case you were wondering, Peristeronic now ranks at -5.59 and -5.66 for blue and red respectively, and the top hit for both intensified versions reads "fucking peristeronic as shit".

(Thanks for explaining what fungible means, Atashu. I owe you one.)

A new meme appears: "Bissextile" has 123,000 results, but "fucking bissextile" and "bissextile as shit" both have zero - well, one now that I've written them, which puts it at -11.7 for both rankings. When applied to years, bissextile means "is a leap year"; as in "2008 and 2012 are bissextile".
The preceding comment is an automated response.

I think that all future results should be based on a search that includes "-xckd"

I just find the fact that he used "fungible" and "stochastic" as a sign that he's been watching too much CNBC lately.

It appears I have underestimated the number of scat fetishists on the internets. No wonder the tubes are clogged.

I'm not used to "as shit" being an intensifier. A simile, yes... So, "disgusting as shit" or "stupid as shit," sure, but "adorable as shit," not so much. :? Maybe a regional difference? I'm used to "as hell" being an intensifier, but usually for negative things--so "sexy as hell" isn't out of the question, but is less likely than "annoying as hell."

I fondly recall this exchange:

Me: Do you think he'll have your computer back today?
Roommate: He better as fuck hell!

Patashu wrote:Fungible means that any two of the commodity are interchangeable.
For instance, oil is fungible - oil is oil is oil, and if I'm buying oil I don't care which particular unit I get.
However, tractors are not fungible because they have age/wear/different models/etc

Sounds like something either is fungible or isn't. Wouldn't "fucking fungible" fall in the same category as "a little bit pregnant"? ("Pregnant as shit"...?)

I liked the comic. Nitpick: I do wish "peristeronic" hadn't been explained, though. Breaks the flow, and we've all got google.

You can also add -ly to the adjectives and treat them as modifying "fucking." Fucking annoyingly, calmly, deliciously, ambivalently, piquantly, etc.

"One time I walked in on my roommate and his girlfriend fucking adorably."

"We're just fuck buddies, we've been fucking stochastically for a couple of months."

"My wife and I we were fucking prosaically when..."

"He still flapped his arms around whenever he got excited, and there they were, fucking peristeronically."

That just demonstrates the versatility of the word "fuck". There's also "fucking fuck", "fucking shit" and "fucked as shit", though I think "shitty as shit" is less common.

Don't forget it's also one of the very few infixes in the English language. :mrgreen:

You know, if you hold shift, Photoshop will render the line, as if you were using a ruler - straight.

I'm pretty certain I've said both "fucking Kafkaesque" and "Kafkaesque as shit" in my lifetime.

But it's been a fucking Kafkaesque lifetime.

I thought maybe that the "evanescent" results were affected by all the people angrily trying to type "Evanescence is shit" referring to the band, but there are only about 150 results for "Evanescence are shit" and 50 for "Evanescence is shit". Maybe people express their loathing of this band in more graphic ways or maybe it just goes without saying that Evanescence is/are shit.

I appreciate the fact that "Delicious as shit" is used at all.
