This came up in chat when I used the term BFE and no one had heard it. I've heard it used in two different states so I took it for granted that it was a national term. Has anyone else heard/used it? Usage: "I'm parked way out in BFE" (I'm parked far away) "He lives out in BFE" (he lives out in the boonies)

I have not heard that term in years. I think you are dating yourself.

Only time I ever heard of BFE was in a thread about Assboink.

Never heard that. I have heard Egypt used to refer to something being far away (where I parked, etc.), but never with the profanity.

Well, I guess I'm a dated midwesterner, too. Though the variation I always heard was "East BF Egypt".

Ugh, yes, unfortunately I know that expression. In fact, recently I was thinking of starting a thread to see if anyone else had (or mentioning it in the "That makes you sound dumb" thread). Sorry, Opal, but I hate that expression. Seems so insulting to Egypt.

I don't think it's a regional term, because my friends and I use it all the time here in the avant garde Midwest. Well, we used to. We've shortened it a bit. Instead of saying that "I had to park way the hell out in BFE." we just say, "I got myself a nice little Egyptian spot."

We never said Butt-Fucked Egypt, though. It was always Bumfuck Egypt.

While I was in high school (in the fantabulous far-northwestern suburbs of Chicago) we said BFI, which I believe stood for butt-fucking Iowa. (Sorry, Chris!) I didn't hear BFE until much later - I think when I went to University of Iowa, actually.

That reminds me, why does the wind come from the west? Because Iowa blows

The term used here on the Texas Gulf Coast is Bummf**k Egypt.
I have been hearing and useing it for years, so it is not just a midwestern saying.

Here in politically correct Cincinnati, you park in East (or West) Bu-Fu, which is short for East (West) Butt Fuck.

No mention of Egypt, or Idaho.

Haven't heard it as much lately, but it's still around. Here, (southeast MI) it stood for butt-fucking Egypt.

Gee, I thought everybody heard/used this one, only I've heard it as "Buttfuck, Egypt," and (similarly) "Buttfuck, Idaho." Never heard "BFE" but of course, it means the same thing. I'm originally from Texas, although I've heard plenty of folks use it here in CA.

A few years ago I was invited to a cabin owned by a friend's parents. There were a bunch of guys going to spend the weekend, hang out, play some pool, do some drinking.

Anyway, as we were driving to the cabin, we were given warnings by my friend and his cousin not to act like typical big-city jerks in the local town. "These cops won't give you a break, people. Remember, we're way the hell out here in Bumblefuck, Pennsylvania."

Coming from his cousin, who was an ex-Marine, I'd always thought it was a military expression. Loved it, though.

Along with "bum-fucked Egypt" we'd also say "East Jesus" for someplace way out in the boonies, or a parking spot at the farthest end of the lot. This is in central California. I can see why Egypt would be used to mean someplace far away (after all it is), but I could never figure out why being fucked in the bum would make it even farther, or why we said Egypt and not, say, China or Antarctica. Have not the remotest clue what "East Jesus" could mean (and no, Im not particularly fond of the profanity - or would it be blasphemy? - either). It's just what we said.

OpalCat,

That is a term frequently used here on the Front Range of Colorado.

Usually it refers to small towns or those that live out east of here....sometimes also referred to BFK or Butt Fuck Kansas.

No offense to those that live in Kansas, but anything east of the city of Colorado Springs means, you might as well be in Kansas. I think it has to do with the fact that on a clear day, you apparently can see Kansas from the top of Pikes Peak.

Another term used, specifically in the Denver Metro area is when talking about the city of Aurora (east of Denver) it's called Saudi Aurora....no offense to anyone that is from that region, but just a term coined by western Denver area residents.

I'd always heard "bumba (or bumble) fuck Egypt." This was in Georgia.

I haven't ever heard any of the Egyptian variations, but I know of East Bubblefuck, and, from older relatives, 40th and Plum (e.g, "I had to park at 40th and Plum, all the good spots were taken"), meaning forty miles plum in the middle of nowhere.

In DC it was Bumfuck, Egypt. Another variation is Bumblefuck, Ethiopia.

Bumfuck, Egypt is well known in New York. As is East Jesus, Nevada.

BFE works out here too (OR/WA/ID), and I have heard a professor note that he was afraid of ending up teaching at "East Jesus State". Cracked me up. I've always visualized EJS being somewhere near Odessa or Tupelo or something.

We called Grand Junction Bum-fuck Egypt, and we lived there!

I've heard BFE and bu-fu from Minnesota to Florida. Also, East Mumblefuck (heard that in Indiana).

Well that explains it. I've seen a number of cars around here with BFE in one of those European-style oval stickers. The only word I caught was "Egypt." This is a cosmopolitan neighborhood, but I thought that there seemed to be an unusual number of Egyptians.

There are also BFD stickers, but that one I understood.

I sometime used the term Buttfuck South Dakota simply to indicate that we are in the middle of nowhere.

Course, anyone whose ever been there can say the same thing. Place is pretty desolate

I had never heard it til I went to university; when I guy told me I lived in BFE (my college is rather far from the center of campus), I hadn't the faintest idea of what he was talking about. I've heard it a few times since then, but it's certainly not a common phrase. I live in the Bay Area, and go to school not far away. The guy who used it was, as I recall, also from the Bay. My guess is that it probably originated in the Midwest, and is in the process of being transferred to the rest of the country. Just as 'hella' will eventually take over the world! HAHAHAHAHA!!!!

Hey, even growing up in the sticks of Montana, the back parking lot at the high school was known as BFE -- Bum-Fuck Egypt. Never heard of "bu-fu", though.
