An actual process described in linguistics.

In a polysyllabic english word, an expletive may be inserted before a stressed syllable for emphasis and effect.

This is an important rule in morphology. For instance:

Fan-fucking-tastic is acceptable, while
*Fantas-fucking-tic is not.

Made all the funnier because this is the only example of infixation in English.
