I know when screw or bolt threads get messed up it is common to say you buggered up the threads, so I'd have to say it is also a verb here.

I almost never heard either of my parents swear, in English, Danish, or Swedish. I would sometimes hear my dad say "för helvete" (hell) if he got really angry. If my mum used a swear word, it meant that she was really, really angry. All her friends knew it was really serious if she let out one of those words.

She wouldn't even say, "I hate his guts." She would say "I dislike his guts." which, with a Danish accent, was always pretty funny.

Right, but then it has the same nasty meaning as in the UK.

So I should only say it if the screw is metric?

Well, hopefully no one will FUBAR their Thanksgiving dinners this year and everyone will be well sated, with turkey filled bellies and dreams.

Exactly! You clearly get it. An expert in vulgarity!
