What Does BFC Mean?
This slang acronym is used most often in online chatting and text messages to represent the phrase “big f**king can” or, if you prefer to be less vulgar, “big freakin’ can.” It is used primarily to describe a Monster energy drink that comes in a one liter-sized can for consumption.
Origin of BFC
The company that manufactures Monster energy debuted the product in the market in April of 2002. The 32 ounce “big freakin’ can” came to market sometime between 2007 and 2009. Monster themselves labeled the can with this acronym to represent the phrase in the meaning above because it was the largest volume of energy drink on the market from any manufacturer. However, there was little demand for the product so the company decided to discontinue its production of this size can just a few short years later.
Like most acronyms used today, this one is also used to represent some other things as well such as other random phrases, technical titles, and more. While this cannot be made an all-inclusive list of every possibility, some of the other things that this acronym is used to represent are “British Fashion Council,” “Bicycle Friendly Community,” “Bowling For Comlubine,” “Betty Ford Center,” and “Backup Flight Control.”
