In this paragraph of Pulp novel of Charles Bukowski:
I lit my cigarette, took a drag. Then I followed him. I have Red a goodbye nod, then stepped into the street. Just in time to see him get into an '89 Fiat at the curb. And who was parked right behind him? My Bug was parked right behind him, What luck! Talk about fornicating the odds! First time I had found curb parking in months!
First question: what does fornicating the odds mean and whats is its origin?
Second question: I know what does curb mean, but what does curb parking mean here and to park at the curb?
Thank you in advance.
