Something that is beyond absolute bullshit and pisses you off. It is actually a homophone or same sounding word to FAIL. It comes from the combination of fail + hale. Hale is actually hell. As corporations become more paranoid about their employees, they utilize keyloggers and chat monitors. Certain words like fail, hell, f*ck, phuck, etc are marked as key words and trigger more logging on an employee's computer. Phale is a word to express bitterness or call something out when you encounter the common WTF scenario.
This place is phale. The phale is strong. What the phale?
