the Good Word

The bloggosphere is all a-twitter over this new tool that shows you how often a particular word has been used, so somebody has to ask the obvious question.   Puerile is my middle name, so I'll step up to the plate. Here is a chart of how much people use the word "fuck".

Looks like my dad was right, the world went to hell in a handbasket starting in about the 1960's, but wait, this doesn't look right.  The records go back five hundred years, so ...
