    Not a English slang term but what about having a Faggot on a cold English Morning.

    Sets you up for the rest of the day.

    Or you smoke 20 FAGS a day and die young.

    That reminds me when I lived in Hungary I saw quite a few license plates that said FAG, obviously it's not a word there. :)
