But you do at least appreciate irony

I couldn't care less where it came from. It made me laugh.

Agree! But its the text talk that drives me crazy! My mind doesn't want to decipher what someone is trying to say when they spell that way. Much better to stick with the older folk that spell somewhat correctly...

It's because the letter 'F', when spoken, begins with a vowel sound. Of course the full phrase would be 'who gives a fuck' but that wouldn't have been quite as ironic, would it?

I guess its how you hear it. I know how an is used and that's why I was curious as to why you thought it should be used before that word.

Who gives an ****...
Who gives a ****....

The second sentence sounds grammatically correct.

Before the letter, not the word. Read this literally - Who gives a f.

Does the sound correct?

I agree, and almost used an when I was posting originally (to be used in front of the f.) However, if you say the word, it just doesn't sound right....

A woman with a rather nice arse looking at the RV that is for sale outside my office window.
