这句话来自South Park,一群gothic kids绑架了一个伪gothic kid在后备箱(trunk),打算让后者永远消失。
Fedex 是联邦快递,也是商标名称,这里用作动词,表示用Fedex公司的快递服务运送某样东西。名词或者名称用作动词可以使得句子更简洁明了,面却了send him by Fedex 这样累赘的说法。
以前在公司写英文邮件的时候就用过Please DHL the spare parts tomorrow.
你还可以将UPS也用作动词来使用。
当然,除了用作动词,Fedex, DHL, UPS 还可以扮演副词的角色,比如ESLPOD的一个例句:
I’ll send it UPS or FedEx using their ground service.
还有一个例句:
but just send it regular mail through the post office.
不过只需要通过邮局的平邮包裹发送就可以了。  
这里的regular mail(平邮)也起到了副词的作用(通过平邮发货、寄送)。
