English legal documents date the f-word to the 1300s

Paul Booth, an English historian at Keele University, has found the so-called f-word expletive used as an uncomplimentary nickname in several legal documents during the years 1310 and 1311. [NSFW]

An unfortunate man came to be known (legally) as Roger Fuckebythenavel, and Booth presumes he may have earned the nickname through a misguided attempt at his first copulation, in which he...ahem...attempted to enter the wrong orifice of his romantic partner.

SCAtoday.net has no reason to believe Roger Fuckedbythenavel is related in any way to Roger the Shrubber.
