skookum as Frigg

4.36/5 (14)

“skookum as frig” is one of the mainstays of the bumblefuck bible, but should it actually be written “skookum as Frigg”, referring to Frigg, wife of Odin, foremost of all Goddesses in Norse mythology, who would herself appear to be pretty fackin’ skookum!?!

My take is that it means “good as fuck” which is short for “good as it fucking gets”.

Pretty sure “frig” as a Canadianism is the same as it is in British English (in which it is a synonym for fuck) and the etymology, while not entirely clear, doesn’t appear to be a reference to Norse mythology since it goes back to Old English. Though I’m sure Frigg was pretty damned skookum, what with the giant blood…
