Buddy funker

Back when I was a productive member of "the workforce" I had a coworker who was from the army. One of his creative pieces of slang that he brought with him was the term buddy funker. (Pardon my creative spelling - I need to use it to get around the curse word filter).

A buddy funker is someone who acts like your buddy, while he's undermining you behind your back. I've always thought of FB like that. Pretending like it is your "friend" then selling your data behind your back to the highest bidder.

He's the man.
