There is a George Saunders short story entitled, “The End of FIRPO in the World,” in which “FIRPO” is featured as some kind of put-down used by the main character’s mother’s boyfriend (and the character himself.)
I don’t have the actual story in front of me, but it was used along the lines of, “Leaving your new bike out in the middle of the street-- what a FIRPO thing to do!”
I can certainly think of derogatory words beginning with F, I, etc., but the story never reveals what FIRPO stands for. (It’s not a surname.) I’m curious as to whether FIRPO is something Saunders just made up to keep people guessing*, or whether it’s an actual insult/putdown. If so, what does it stand for?
*Which is a FIRPO thing to do, IMO.
