Mainly used in the 1990s by gay men and usually pronounced with a stress on each syllable. This word was used as an alternative to fierce, which became overused at the time.
- Did you see Tanika in that Moschino outfit? She was looking FU-RI-OUS!!
- Girl, the party last night was furious!
slang term primarily used by gay men in the early to mid 90s. used when something is so fierce you can't help but wanting to gag from the overload of extreme fierceosity.
