It's like peanut butter, cheese, and bacon ...

“Believe me! The secret of reaping the greatest fruitfulness and the greatest enjoyment from life is to live dangerously!”
~Friedrich Nietzche

You know there are some things we do and say that make everything better. Like for example, peanut butter, cheese, and bacon. Add any of the scrumptious items to a dish and it is ten times better. This also goes for fake cheesy powder or spread. I think it may be even better if you have to lick it off of your fingers. (mmm mmmm good)

There are a few words that have this effect as well. They can make something great even better, like a pan seared scallop wrapped in bacon. In slang or in speaking with the unsophisticated folks like myself, they can be used like gerunds and participles. One such word is fuckin'. Notice this is not the curse word, f!c(ing. This is like bi+(h verses Biatch. A word like f#%k!n' can make something that is already great so much better.

So, in the future I predict that there will be a trend to introduce some of these new words into the Webster's Dictionary. I can see thinks like fan-f#%k!n'-tastic (FFT) or the very orthopaedic ana-f#%k!n'-tomic (AFT) used as freely as many other word are used today. People will answer questions like "how are you" with answers like f#%k!n'-great or or ff#%k!n'-awesome. It may even be added to high school education once everything is done on-line and no one has to go to school anymore.

This is the future of language as I see it and our time will come. This is the Nuevo English language. But for now, we will have to keep these words to ourselves and use acronyms like a teenage text message.

Oh, and you are so right about cheese, bacon, and peanut butter. There is not a dish that you can't take from being good to being FFT with the addition of one (or several) of those ingredients.
