* One HorribleCampingTrip in ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'' ended with the terrible weather letting up the moment the family was packing up to leave. [[TakeOurWordForIt Though we don't get to see it]], this was apparently Calvin's Dad's reaction.
-->'''Calvin:''' "Did you know what any of Dad's words meant?"
-->'''Hobbes:''' "No, but I wrote them down so we can look 'em up when we get home."


This trope is named after a combination of the terms [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cluster_bomb cluster bombs]] and F-bomb, another term for "fuck", "fucking", or any other known correct form of the word. Compare with VulgarHumor, PrecisionFStrike, AtomicFBomb and {{Angrish}}; also see ObligatorySwearing, which sometimes takes the form of Cluster F-Bomb. Contrast with ForeignCussWord, PardonMyKlingon, and especially GoshDangItToHeck. For more examples, see [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_films_that_most_frequently_use_the_word_%22fuck%22 The Other Wiki]]. A RantInducingSlight or VillainousBreakdown sometimes triggers one of these. A character who drops these while the other characters use more subdued language is a SirSwearsALot.

Some writers think the media is [[GoshDangItToHeck oversanitized]] and does not reflect how people speak in RealLife, particularly how they swear. Heavy usage of swearing is seen to be more realistic or [[DarkerAndEdgier 'gritty']]. This sentiment is stronger in certain settings, such as urban life, [[WretchedHive ghettos]], gangs, [[{{GIFT}} online gaming]], blue collar/trade jobs, fucking concerts, [[DrillSergeantNasty the military]], {{Crapsack World}}s, etc. There is some truth to this, as there is more swearing in real life than any prime time TV show would lead you to believe.

Often, this is used as a ComedyTrope, where a character's usage of a long string of curse words is the fucking joke itself. This often occurs in dark comedies. When movies or shows re-air in syndication, where they often cannot use the amount or severity of swears as they did on their original airing, the curses are [[UnusualEuphemism often redubbed]] or [[SoundEffectBleep bleeped out]], to sometimes amusing results, like [[Film/TheBigLebowski "Do you see what happens when you]] '''[[Film/TheBigLebowski find]]''' [[Film/TheBigLebowski a stranger in the]] '''[[Film/TheBigLebowski Alps]]'''?"

When there's already gratuitous {{Gorn}} and [[CoitusEnsues sex]] all over, using ObligatorySwearing to make the fucking characters sound like 10-year-olds out of parental earshot seems par for the course.

* ''Pinball/StrangerThings'' has a semi-hidden mode where a soundbite of a character saying "bullshit" plays ''every single time'' the ball hits something. Needless to say, it can quickly cross into this territory.
* If it's enabled, ''Pinball/RickAndMorty'' provides a particularly potent example (crossed with TakeThatAudience) if the player tilts:
-->'''Rick:''' Yup, you really fucked that up. Right in the ass. I hope you're happy, fuckface. Stupid bitch-ass, fuckin'... ''bitch''.
