Are you stoned?



I say butt and bum.
Bottom is also pretty polite here. Teachers tell children to sit on their bottoms. It's just wrong though. Your feet are your bottom, and if we're just talking torso, then why aren't your shoulders your top?
Nah, I wasn't stoned, I'm like that a lot of the time.

Bum sounds better I think. BTW, anyone read The day my bum went psycho? In America they changed it to the day my Butt went Psycho.

The importance of the above fact = 0

twat, eh? well you are correct; although it can indeed mean a stupid person, twat is in fact another way of saying flange. or vagina, if you insist on getting technical about it.

Thank you Tofu :)

So if twat if twat is feminine slang then, I have to admit I use masculine slang too sometimes. I might describe someone as being a dick (d*ck if the swearing thing picks that up) - meaning they are being stupid.

I have been known to use cock as well as dick

That's cockerel - well, since cock became cock, anyway.

(Unless you're from Lancashire where they call everyone 'cock'. A bit like 'mate'.)

I'm from Burnley, but don't live there now. So I don't tend to use 'cock' in that context.
It's using when I am driving along the lines of, "what a cock" or "cock-wit", my favourite variation on f*ck-wit.
We do make up new swear words in our house; ones that make no sense, like f*ck brain :eek:

F*ck brain eh?

How about Fannyhead? nah. hmm, can you guys write dow a list of swearords you made yourself or are a bit different from the "normal" ones?

I need more variety to my insulting!

My bf and I jokingly call each other made up swearwords all the time.
We just use whatever comes to mind, although some can be a bit rude:

Fanny breath
sh*t f*ck (lots of just swear word combos going on)
Wally (not really a swear word) combined with tit, brain, head
D*ck sh*t
C*nt head
Arse f*ck
I call him c*ck sucker a lot (although he doesn't. Not that there's anything wrong with men who do :D )
Smelly bum


We do also call each nice things :o - we just do the mean words to be silly and childish.

Can't think of many others.

The most outrageous insult i've heard is when i friend of mine lost his rag with the boss and told him he had a face like a bag of smaked twatts. The boss was rendered speechless and so was i. Inevitably, my friend got the sack but he felt suitably smug!!

Minge breath couldn't be an insult could it??

I called someone a dick at work today. To me, it means more of a jerk, than someone being stupid. like a prick or an ass!

you can also "dick around" which means screw around, waste time, give someone the run around.

I thought I made up the word f*ck wit!

We make up names in our house too... :D One of late is "wank-pot"

My boyf and I got together (as in went out for a drink, nothing ruuude) on a Saturday (and barely knew eachother before this point) and I can remember extremely clearly that on the following Wednesday (4 days later) he left me a message on my answerphone to call him and the opening line was 'hello s**t c**t which I nearly wet myself laughing at. I had tears in my eyes with laughter. He now rarely calls me that but I think that foul language if used in appropriate circumstances (ie without anybody that might be offended listening in) is often fabulous and I encourage it wholeheartedly. We're getting married next year... the guy clearly knows how to pull.

Really? You think so? I do, totally, but I thought people might just think we're a bit odd. he cracks me up - he pretends to bully me sometimes and I say (in a downtrodden way) 'sorry Trevor' as in Trevor in 'Eastenders' (wife beater). And please don't all chastise me for this - it's a joke. I FULLY understand the issues surrounding this - but it's nice just to be a teeny bit non 'pc' onstuff sometimes.

I completelly agree, and while I was being a teeny bit ironic in my previous thread, it was mostly that I do think its really sweet and funny too, after all its so obvious that you felt incredibly comfortable around each other straight away. I think you've got a good point about swear words, and non-pc stuff to, its a different issue when between close friends etc than when in 'public. If you know a person will take it for how you mean it then its different- its not always an offence or insult.

Around here "twat" only means vagina. If you called a woman a twat it would mean that she is nothing more than a vagina. And if you ever come to the USA, Stu, never use the word "c.u.n.t."(damned censoring). I'm no prude and I don't think that I've ever used the word.

I agree. The vast majority of the time it would be unacceptable (and rightly so!) but on occasions I too feel it's ok.

On a separate (ish) note, I was accused of being ageist recently on this forum (I felt it was COMPLETELY unjust) for stating what I felt (and still feel) is a valid opinion.

Yes, I agree. That is definately the worst cuss-word you could ever, ever say here in the US. It is rarely said by anyone, ever.

Allthough I have to confess that I use it occasionally and i get a real shock value out of it. I have made sailors blush! :eek: Damn British movies and boyfriend have desensitized it for me!!

I also once practically started a brawl at a millineum New Year's party by using it in a sentance to this total jerk. It wasn't even my house, I didn't even know him and he asked me to "tidy up a bit" as the place was getting messy! :eek: I leaned over and whispered in his ear in a very breathy voice, "Just because I have a c*nt, doesn't mean that I am going to "tidy up for you." He was incredibly shocked and offended and made a huge deal out of it. My boyfriend was furious with me because he practically got decked by the guy (who went straight to my boyfriend to report my disrespect to him with my "trailor trash mouth." He announced to the entire party what I had said, my female friends thought I was a goddess since the guy was being such a prick and I had the guts to say something to him. He even left the house and went door to door at 4AM around the neighbourhood asking for cigarettes, tried to make a sandwhich and left the cheese with a knife in it on the kitchen floor, tried to get into the bedroom we were in in the middle of the night (which didn't have a lock, but I had blocked the door) and we found out later he was doing cocaine in the garage! Not our scene...

One place i do see it used is amongst some of the very left wing feminist groups here. they have "reclaimed" the word so to speak and I am totally in on it. :)

That sounds like a perfect use of the word Wildflower! And there you have the exact point of having swear words as swear words and not just regular words - for shock value and poetic justice so to speak.
