What is the meaning of "Put together 'f****ing sh*t' is ~" in the following sentence?

Put together 'f****ing sh*t' is stuff that really bothers, angers, or disgusts you.

  1. Does it mean "That we put together 'f****ing sh*t' is stuff that really bothers, angers, or disgusts you"?

There is another verb (->is) after the sentence that starts with the verb(->Put).
  2. Is it grammatically correct?

"Put" is the past participle of "Put". You can understand the line as

If they are put together ...

There is a modifying participle phrase. Compare:

Eaten quickly, burgers are delicious.

The sentence still needs a grammatical subject, and a participle phrase cannot be a subject. In my example, "burgers" is the subject. In your example, the quote is the grammatical subject. A participle isn't a noun phrase, but a quote can be.

  • If so, can a sentence starting with a past participle be a subject of sentences? for example, is a sentence," Eaten quickly are~" possilbe? If possilbe, how are these sentences like that interpreted? (Put together ...is ->If they are put together ...:; Eaten quickly are ~ -> If they are eaten quickly are~ ) ? – user22046 Mar 31 at 11:48
