The Spread of Frak

Via del.icio.us: CNN reports on the growing popularity of frak, the four-letter word coined for the original Battlestar Galactica and revived with the remake.

The word has even appeared in the funny pages where Dilbert muttered a disconsolate “frack” — the original spelling before producers of the current show changed it to a four-letter word — after a particularly dumb order from his evil twit of a boss.

“Dilbert” creator Scott Adams calls the word “pure genius.”
