Rebel Circus The “fart-bite-bubble” fronking was posted to Urban Dictionary by user Fronkenstein on July 7, 2014. The made-up, nonsense, potty-humor word (and concept) did not gain much traction outside Fronksenstein and his comrades until December 11, 2018, when comedian Seth Rogan tweeted about it. Really happened upon a gem in the Urban Dictionary. #Fronking pic.twitter.com/1BADSK8Sjy — Seth Rogen (@Sethrogen) December 12, 2018 His many fans and followers really appreciated his random Urban Dictionary find.

Get kicked out though! — Paul Weinman (@HowlBee680) December 14, 2018 Before Seth Rogan popularized this niche definition, fronking was used since at least 1995 a euphemism for fucking, like fricking or fragging. The newfound popularity of the “fart-bite-bubble” fronking, though, helped give the “fucking” fronking a boost.
