I was so happy to see FUBAR in the word list.  Somehow the Merriam-Wesbster dictionary did not quite provide the flavor of it in its definition.  Being as gentle as I can, it means "Things are F***ed Up Beyond All Recognition."  And fouled is not the word.

I played fubar too (accepted as rare), but the definition button gives a rather enigmatic, if not fubaresque, response.

Wikipedia also mentions susfu (situation unchanged, still f*****d up) and tarfu (totally and royally f*****d up) as well as the best-known of all snafu (situation normal, all f*****d up).

I don't know if susfu and tarfu are in Chi; snafu is, uncommon.
