the z word
The proper name for Facebook’s currency shouldn’t be Libra or ZuckBucks, but simply the zuck, and the act of paying someone in zucks is zucking.
“How many zucks does this cost?”
“I don’t have any zucks to give.”
“Don’t forget to zuck your server.”

“I was hoping my new job would pay in real money, but I got zucked instead.”
