/tg/ do you suppose our medieval ancestors made jokes about laying the dragon instead of slaying it like we do today?

I like to think they did.

Depends, if our medieval ancestors were speaking germanic languages, then the pun probably wouldn't translate.

It could work.

Isn't it a common folk etymology that 'fuck' came from a word meaning 'strike', because they sound similar?

So it would be 'I told you to strike the dragon, not fuck the dragon', but the message would be the same.

Is this some kind of translation thing, or do you mean "struck"?

>> No.31288160

>>31288138
Translation thing.

Apparently there's an Old German word that means 'to strike' which sounds similar to fuck.

Anecdotally, anyway. I haven't studied old Germanic languages, so it's purely folk etymology.
