“Bumblefuck” had developed from the slang expression bumfuck, Egypt, first documented in 1972.
Bumfuck as an expression for a remote area comes from the fact, that very secluded spots often lack women, resulting in men embracing the holes provided by each other to channel their sexual energies.
The initial phrase had several derivatives, ranging from the abbreviation BFE, to “bumblefuck”, bubblefuck and buttfuck.
The first documented use of the term in the title appeared in 1989.
Spread of the term
The humor and within this expression had led to it spreading rapidly, after its conception.
The first entry on Urban Dictionary was written in 2002 and several other people had attempted at describing the meaning behind the phrase.
An another form of “bumblefuck” was also created in 2002; butt fucking nowhere or abbreviated BFN is also encountered, when asking the ominous question; ‘Where the fuck are we?’
