What does HFC stand for?

Holy freaking crap

HFC is short for “Holy freaking crap.” It’s a phrase people use when they’re really surprised or taken aback by something. The letter “F” in the middle stands for “Freaking,” but can sometimes be a place holder for a stronger expletive.

Even though you might hear someone say “Holy freaking crap” out loud, the acronym HFC isn’t as widespread. When people are shocked or surprised, they often use other acronyms like WTF or WTH, or even simple emojis.
