FUBAR is an acronym for “Fouled Up Beyond All Recognition” and the obvious earthier variation.
Compare SNAFU (Situation Normal, All Fouled Up), FUBB (Fouled Up Beyond Belief), and SOL (Sure Out of Luck).
See “FUBAR,” “SNAFU,” “FUBB,” and “SOL,” in Gordon Rottman, FUBAR: Soldier Slang of World War II. New York: Osprey Publishing, 2007.
