17. Orgin of Bumfuck, Egypt
"The first known use of the phraselong form: Buttfuck Egyptwas in 1972, as troops in Vietnam referred to lost records as having gone to the mythical address of Bumfuck, Egypt. (Why they were using the largely British term bum instead of butt is a mystery.)"

"As the Random House Historical Dictionary of American Slang notes, buttfuck dates to the early 1960s as a slang term meaning to victimize or an instance of victimization; an unfortunate eventlike, say, losing military records, or being stuck in the middle of nowhere. This presumably derives from the male-rape/homophobic equation of anal intercourse with pain and unwanted sex."
