no, not the f-ing amazing orson wells film ‘f is for fake’ exposed in an enlightening session with dd back in the day. but the definition.

according to my wiktionary…


From Italian slang fugazi (“fake”); perhaps also slang version of fugacious derived from Latin fugac-, stem of fugāx (“ready to flee, flying”), hence, fleeting, transitory.

[edit] Adjective

fugazi (not generally comparable; )

  1. (slang) Artificial, fake, false. Can be in reference to a thing or a person. If a person it is usually in reference to a superficial person.
  2. (slang) Something that has no substance.
