I don't get it either, I've never heard anyone say it before.  If you mean STFU, why don't you just say STFU?

It's a replacement for STFU - so something you could say in front of kids. At least that's what I thought?

I get that but why would you even want to be saying such a thing in front of kids anyway?  Just modify your language language to get across the same meaning, STFU is a childish expression anyway!

First I heard of it was on an episode of Castle, and I think it was mainly a 'getting crap past the filter' option to express shock.

"Shut the f---ront door!" is also a lot less offensive than "Shut the f&^k up!"
