fuck you

Also get fucked; go fuck yourself. A curse meaning “go to hell.” For example, Fuck you—go get your own dinner! or Get out of here, get fucked! or, as John Dos Passos had it in 1919 (1931): “Joe got sore and told him to go fuck himself.” The first and third of these vulgar curses date from the late 1800s, and the second from about 1950. Also see give the finger.
