Todo sale de la chingada

In Spanish, you can use the word "salir" to talk about how something went, or as we might say in English, "How did it work out?" or "How did it go?".  So we can say:

¿Todo sale bien?
Did everything turn out ok?

And in response to the question above, you could say:

Todo sale mal
Everything turned out bad

But there are times when things don't just go wrong, they go really, really wrong.  In English we might say "everything  got fucked up" or "everything came out fucked up".

And this is where our phrase for today comes in:

Todo sale de la chingada
Everything came out fucked up

Here's another example:

¿Cómo te fue?  De la chingada.
How did it go?  Completely fucked up.

I think the phrase "AFU" - All fucked up, is an equally good translation in this context.

Well, that's it for today.  Hopefully your day will "sale bien" as opposed to "sale de la chingada".

¡Qué tengan buen día!
