1. Chinese crimelord created by Sax Rohmer. Once as popular and widely-used as Dracula, and the template for Ming the Merciless, comics villain the Mandarin and countless others. Now considered highly politically incorrect.

2. Style of facial hair. Long, thin, drooping moustache sometimes accompanied by a wanky little goatee. Looks distinguished on older Oriental gentlemen, elsewhere is a crime against decency.

Literally 'ax qing dynasty'. Fu means axe, Manchu is shorthand for the Qing dynasty that ruled China before rabid nationalists took over on 11 Oct 1911. Thus, fu manchu is like saying 'cut off your pigtails' because queues (stupid pigtail things) were the symbol of the Qing's authority in their rule, all China dudes had to wear them as a subordinate thing. So, its very political, its an expression of dissent even. Hate-fuelled Qing hatred.

Referencing the style of mustache, a Fu Manchu is a very foolish person.

"That, my freind, is a Fu Manchu maneuver."
