I have always been fascinated the way Hollywood portrayed African-American actors in their films. They may be the ever loyal sidekick to a lead actor (insert white guy here) or the headstrong and tough guy blows everything out and lights up the screen. I prefer the latter and not Morgan Freeman. And the guy that perfectly fits the role of the typical character who doesn't fucks around is no other than Samuel L. Jackson.



He should have "motherfucker" as his middle name as he became the actor that uttered the most expletive-laden lines in movie history! It is interesting to note that Samuel "motherfucker" Jackson has uttered that expletive word 186 times since he joined Twitter in October 2011. Go ahead and check out his Twitter feed.


What makes it even more interesting is the fact he has 151 ways of saying that ultimate swear word. Let me repeat, 151 complete and unique spellings. Check out this infographic courtesy of @muchevan.


As quoted in Uproxx.com, "As you can see, the first couple dozen are pretty similar in structure, if not mostly repeats. Then 2012 happened, and it seems like Mr. L. Jackson’s resolution was to never use the same motherf*cker twice. From January 2012 onward, 92% of his “motherf*cker”s are unique, compared to 81% total. Compared to 1% for the worthless other people like you and me. I’ve seen his variants described as crude or vulgar, but that’s bullshit. When Jackson uses the standard spelling, it’s only to acknowledge his aversion to its lack of style. He treats Twitter as the playground that it is, so he brings his celebrity character to the medium like he would anywhere else. The spellings are nuanced and sonically faithful to his pronounced talent. Read them as impressionist cues rather than literal spellings, and you’ll get 151 unique pronunciations."

As he spawned different and memorable characters from the eye-patched Nick Fury to the loudmouth John Shaft, Samuel L. Jackson has become the epitome of total badassery and motherfucking goodness. He's probably a cool guy to hang out with but his movie alter-egos are your worst nightmares if you fuck out with them.
