frak

verb; sound symbolism
to fuck
 
"Why don't you go frak yourself?"
Etymology : A synonym for the common expletive "fuck," frak was originally conceived by the producers of the TV series "Battlestar Galactica" as a way to evade censorship laws while still maintaining all of the meaning and some of the edge of the original curse word. With the success of the modern remake of the show, the term became wildly popular among its fans and quickly became a shibboleth for those who watched the show. However, it eventually spread beyond that relatively insular community, and today the word is used all over popular culture by people who have no idea of its scifi origin. The word can replace "fuck" in any situation, including compound words and different parts of speech.
