fucking excelent. I never did watch those clips as I last checked this at work, and they showed a blocked. youtube is blocked there. am on vaca, near orlando now, and have no time for learning stuff.
I once heard a comedy bit on how fuck was the most versitile word in the english language, noun, verb, adverb, adjective. speaking native canadian as well as I do, I think it was all right, it all sounded right. probably works with other words though [Show/Hide Quoted Message](Quoting Message by guidogodoy from Tuesday, February 21, 2012 12:23:04 AM)
Shit, man. Sorry to avoid your question and I am sure that a native speaker could offer better help but, IMH non-native O, you need a VERB not a subject for a gramatically correct sentence. Just like the vid on "Verb" mentioned: a verb can question like "What is it?"
To extend that to your question, "What the fuck?" simply changes the word "fuck" to a more intensive form of "it" or something a tad harsher like "what the hell?" It is short for "What the fuck IS Hellrider smoking these days?" The key is the verb, not the subject. It is a shortened form of something like "What the fuck IS wrong?" The answer to your question will give you a direct object: "Hellrider is smoking bananas."
So, yes, you have a complete sentence as it stands. Even as a question. Ask a native speaker, though, to be sure. What the fuck do I know? (Quoting Message by Head banger from Saturday, February 18, 2012 7:03:06 AM)

could it not also be a question though, or do I need a subject, like what the fuck is hellrider smoking these days?
dont recall schoolhouse rock
Yes. That is an interjection. Usually without a question mark, though: What the fuck!
Schoolhouse Rock never made it to Canada? "Interjections, show excitement or emotion....or anger over Hellrider!" HAAAAA!!!
