Referring to a single person. Does it mean that person is incompentent? Or what? I'm sure it has multiple meanings.

A clusterfuck is like a screw up.


Generally I don't think you'd refer to a person as a clusterfuck, as much as their actions, or events they were involved in. I suppose if they royally suck, then you'd call them a clusterfuck...

To me it means when a bunch of circumstances fuck you over. Like when one thing bad happens after the other, I say that I'm being clusterfucked.

Hmmm...interesting. Thx.Yeah, I suppose a person could be a clusterfuck, like they could be a calamity.

I thought about it more after I posted.

I had this one girlfriend who was into that...

Oh and yeah, it's like just a trainwreck of circumstances that make for one big fuckup. Or it can just describe utter social clutter.

Amazingly enough, it's not in the slang dictionary (http://www.slangdictionary.com).

I think this thread could be considered a clusterfuck...or at least a few people on this board could be considered one.

it has its roots in the military.

found this while googling for it


Clusterfuck: too many clueless officers/managers each trying to implement their own plan without any regard to what the others are doing. Guaranteed to end up FUBAR. Referred to in some quarters as a Charlie Foxtrot situation.

I think I know who at least one of those people would be.

How does one get to be RC's age and not pick up on what a clusterfuck is?

She starts a thread asking about a term or phrase every few months. Mostly, I think, stuff she heard from Bendis.

A clusterfuck is what we're going to get if the eastern wall of this hurricane goes through New Orleans.
