Favorite Sci-Fi Curse?

apple-marc Re:Missing Option! (639 comments)

I think you'll find that the whole shebang about Belguim being a bad word began in the very first ever version of the HHG, the BBC Radio 4 series. That was before the books where ever written. Belgium may have been substitued for f**k in the american book, but Belgium, the swear word, was around long before that.
