2) it's covered in the full Distractify article that I take you to in a bit.

In that article, it's number 3 on the list of 50 words of common things with unlikely words.

See that “series of symbols commonly used in comics or cartoons to represent curse words” in the above image? That's called a Grawlix.

But this next one…? Well consider using it with a bit of caution…
