English term or phrase: finuk
A woman asks her priest (who is in love with her),

"Of all the finuk priests in the world, why did i have to get
the one who's straight?"

I couldn't find this word in any dictionary whatsoever, and its references on the web are scarce. Does anyone have any idea what she means? Many thanks!
