New bad words

One annoying linguistic failure is using the words for sexual acts and parts to refer to bad things. It has been suggested that rather than saying something “sucks” if we don’t like it, we should say it sucks badly. Two other possibilities, pronounced similarly: In tribute to the auto biz we could say, “That suvs.” Or, in honor, if that is the word, I am looking for, of the Patient Zero of Facebook, “That zucks.”
