...I’ve also heard non-American English speakers say it “fook,”...

Sounds New York or Boston, Maeg….

The Evolution of Physics? I’ve never even heard of that book before (and it doesn’t get mentioned in the wikipedia article about Einstein). It would have made more sense if the joke had picked one of the famous years in his career… like the year he published all his famous papers, or the year he was awarded the nobel prize. Sorry to whine about this. It’s the history of science major in me coming out.

I hate to be picky… but 1999 is also the wrong year for the Lewinsky affair, which is what I assume the joke is referring to.

(Oh, and I’m assuming you didn’t write the joke yourself, thunderstruck… if you did just ignore me… it’s a really good joke, but incorrect historical dates are one of my pet peeves.)

Well, after all the bitching and whining is over, I liked it Thunder. It was very funny.
