The Fugs Quotes
The Fugs were what the 50's deserved. The 50's created the Fugs, I think - the enforced hypocrisy and the hubris and the just - stalking all over the world and knocking off people and just, all these little adventures and things. They kinda stun me because, the politicians don't ever seem to put the people first. Never. America created us.
Norman Mailler created that word in one of his novels, "Naked and the Dead" I think. You couldn't write 'fuck' in a novel and so he put in 'fug.' That was the closest- it was scandalous. But he was writing about soldiers. He got away with it in the novel and so the Fugs adopted it.
