Sounds like it was FUBAR!
You know, I had not hear that phrase since leaving the military. Lately, I've been hearing it a lot. I heard a pastor use it a month or so ago. He didn't know what it stood for. So I clued him in. Of course, now if anyone asks him it stands for:

"Fouled Up Beyond All Repair"

The message gets accross, and yet the language is toned down. Same thing with SNAFU.
