Fuck, I Never Actually Learned Shit (“finals” backronym)

“Fuck, I Never Actually Learned Shit” is a backronym (back-acronym) for the word “finals” that has been printed on many gift items, such as T-shirts and posters. There is a Facebook page titled F.I.N.A.L.S = Fuck, I never actually learned shit. The “finals” backronym has been cited in print since at least May 2004. A milder version is “Fudge, I Never Actually Learned (this) Squat/Stuff.”
       
Similar school-related backronyms include “Six/Seven Crappy Hours Of Our Lives” (school), “Sucks Children’s Happiness Out Of Life” (school), “Come Late And Start Sleeping” (class) and “Half Of My Energy Wasted On Random Knowledge” (homework).
