AsYouKnow, "''Kung fu''" (Chinese: 功夫, literally "achievement through sustained effort") is a collective term for a number of fighting styles which have roots as ancient as the 18th century BCE and have continued to evolve to this day. The greatest spike in popularity and variety of ''Kung Fu'' came in the 20th century; not only did the now-iconic "drunken boxing", "five animals" and "tai chi chuan" styles develop during that period, but upon exposure to contemporary western pop culture, ''Kung Fu'' experienced a veritable ''explosion'' of applications to a variety of professions, aspirations and walks of life other than the canonical ''kung''.

->''"Just the fact that they can release a fighting game starring Shaquille O'Neal and call it ''VideoGame/ShaqFu'' pretty much proves that you can put 'Fu' at the end of anything. How about ''Creator/RobinWilliams Fu'', or ''Music/{{U2}} [=Fu=]''?"''
