Shouldn't it be "About what the frack was that?" ? I don't grammar much, but if prepositions aren't supposed to be at the end of the phrase, then I think it should.

Captcha: Superbly. Ha.

In the same sentence, there is "If you run a sentence on," 'on' also being a preposition. This fault isn't so egregious - according to some website, somewhere, it's not wrong to put a preposition at the end of a clause, only a sentence. Still, it sounds clumsy, and looks misplaced in a page specifically about complete grammatical correctness.
