mug

clipping; noun
Motherfucker.
 
"Motherfucker" was clipped, using the /m/ from "mother" and the /ʌk/ from "fucker" to form /mʌk/. The /k/ in /mʌk/ was eventually voiced to a /g/ sound, forming /mʌg/. It is used in the same contexts that motherfucker is, although it generally hold less emphasis. The term is not derogatory, but still carries negative connotations. It does not carry the same taboo status as does "motherfucker".
Etymology : Clipping of "motherfucker".
