What starts with 'f' and ends with 'u-c-k'?

For a kid growing up in the Sixties, Soupy Sales was a daily bad influence, a kiddie show host who offered an afternoon class in anarchy, rebelliousness and wild, grown-up comedy that, like the music of Vic Mizzy, had a lasting effect. Soupy actually was suspended-- jailed, we thought-- for instructing us mail him those dirty green pieces of paper with the pictures of the men we'd find in out parents' wallets and purses. His daily Soupy Sez nuggets of wisdom did tell us that it's always greener in the other guy's wallet, and we still know the lyrics to Pachalafaka, but someone's got to tell us if he really did, as we've always remembered, teach us this joke:

"What word starts with an 'f' and ends with a 'u-c-k'?

Soupy Sales practically invented the immortal pie in the face gag -- they don't make em like that anymore...
