“Fork yeah”

"Fork yeah”—a euphemism for “fuck yeah”—is a food term that has been printed on many images. “Fork yeah!” was printed in the Sydney (Australia) Morning Herald on December 13, 20015.

“T-shirt that bore the name ‘Guy Fieri’ on the front and ‘Fork Yeah’ on the back” was printed in the Reno (NV) Gazette-Journal on January 12, 2010.


13 December 2005, Sydney (Australia) Morning Herald, “Stay in Touch” by Joel Gibson and Tom Dick, pg. 20: 
The 2004 tune, much of which we can’t print here, was penned by the creators of SBS’s animated South Park series and - give or take a couple of vowels - its chorus goes a little something like this:

“America, fork yeah! Coming again to save the motherforking day, yeah!

“America, fork yeah! Freedom is the only way, yeah.”

November/December 2007, Poets & Writers (New York, NY), “Literary Laryngitis” by Katherine Dystra, pp. 21-24:
And when I wrote for the Post, I was clever, tongue firmly inserted in cheek. ("Fork Yeah!” was the headline of a recent story on the North Fork of Long Island that I wrote for that paper.)
