A 1790 poem by George Tucker has a father upset with his bookish son say “I’d not give [a fuck] for all you’ve read”. Originally printed as “I’d not give —— for all you’ve read”, scholars agree that the words “a fuck” were removed, making the poem the first recorded instance of the now-common phrase “I don’t give a fuck”.[18]
