A blending of "flop" and "fabulous."
Etymology : A blend of "flop" and "fabulous." "Flop"(v) c.1600, probably a variant of flap with a duller, heavier sound. Sense of "fall or drop heavily" is 1836, that of "collapse, fail" is 1919; though the figurative noun sense of "a failure" is recorded from 1893. "Fabulous"(adj) early 15c., "mythical, legendary," from Latin fabulosus "celebrated in fable; rich in myths," from fabula. Sense of "incredible" first recorded c.1600. (Online Etymology Dictionary)
