Associated Press struggles with F-bomb
From a story about New York Yankees star Alex Rodriguez's wife's "obscene" tank top:

"The slugger's wife wore a white tank top to the game against the Athletics. A common, two-word obscenity ending with "you" was clearly visible when she and her 2-year-old daughter, along with an unidentified older woman, took their seats in the players' family section at Yankee Stadium.

"A front-page photograph Monday in the New York Post showed the back of the tank top with the obscenity printed in Old English lettering between the shoulder blades. The first letter of the first word is visible; the three other letters are intentionally blurred. The second word is 'You.' The paper's headline read: "F-Rod."

Gee, AP, I'm not getting it. Can you give me some clues? What could that obscenity have been?
