    Default What does " Fucking A" mean?

    Hi all!

    Once I saw a original English movie named " Allien", and I noticed one guy inside responded to another as : "Fucking A"! I got confused here. It's a some kind of a slang? Or just some uncivil words blurted out from a soldier naturally?

    And is it common? Does it also come with B ,C ......?

    'fucking A' is considered vulgar English. It can function as an interjection (!) or as an adjective. It is used to express objection as well as to describe something or someone as top grade A material.

    As far as I know, there are two ways to use it:

    1. A stands for alright
    Definition: Used to express objection.

    Ex: Fucking A (right) you are going to do what I say!


    2. A stands for alright, amazing, or A as in Grade 'A', top quality
    Definition: Used synonymously with amazing, wonderful, great.

    Ex: That Alien movie was fucking A (alright)!

    I haven't heard it used like that in BE- people would say 'f*cking right' instead. We do say Swweet FA, meaning f*ck all.
