The Redhead: "If you don't like the way I wrote it, that's one thing, but you don't get to tell me what you think of me as a person and get effing graded on it!" There has been some debate over here at Wellesley as to how one should spell "effing." I am all for the "eff" but some have said the proper way is "f'ing." That looks like "fing" to me. Which is an entirely different looking word. Perhaps even a name. Used in a sentence: "Hi, I'm Marty Fing, manager at Circuit City, may I have your daughter's hand in marrige?"
