A picture of a bomb with the letter F on it. A photographic reprensentation of the slang term F-bomb or Eff bomb. When you say the "F" word it is said that you droped the "F-Bomb".
The ‘F’ word has been creeping into the lexicon of the chattering classes more regularly of late.
By the ‘F’ word, I don’t mean the ‘F’ bomb, but far more ominously, the ‘Failed’ word to describe the current and future state of South Africa. Some pessimistic commentators, politicians and self-promoting financial advisors have leached the ‘Failed’ word into common parlance, while an uncritical local media has regurgitated these alarmist outpourings without applying any thoughtful filter.
