Quote for the Day

The publishers of The Naked and the Dead persuaded author Norman Mailer to use the euphemism "fug" and “fugging” in lieu of "fuck" and “fucking” in his war novel.

When actress Tallulah Bankhead was introduced to Mailer in 1948, she said to him “So you’re the young man who can’t spell ‘fuck’ .”
