Regarding Norman Mailer's use of "fug" as an expletive in "The Naked and the Dead": After the book came out and had some success, Mailer was introduced to a New York society woman at a cocktail party, and supposedly she said to him something like "Oh, yes, you're the young man who can't spell f**k."
