One of the most expressive expletives I've heard, and one with a touch of archaism. The word "corruption" here doesn't refer to bribery and graft, but rather to necrosing and decaying flesh. ("Corruption" is also used to refer to rot and decay in the King James Bible.) Hence, this is an invocation of biochemical heck breaking loose -- somewhat reminiscent of the offensive medieval habit of catapulting filth and rotten corpses into a city which one is besieging.

Hagbard Celine mutated this expletive to the equally disquieting "Shit, piss, and industrial waste."
