I still don't get why "up yours" means "**** you!" Maybe because it is short for something or that it is a subtle version of **** you? I am so confused

Up yours mean au cul in french imo and it's a variant for fu or vc imo. But it's not the same: fu is sexual as well but it's friend sexual while uy is enemy sexual.

So **** you! can be jokingly said, whereas Up yours! is meant to direct hatred...

In "up yours" the "yours" is short for "your ass".

"up yours" generally means to cram something up one's ass. Quite different from "**** you"
