Which country has the best insults?


#1

I’m English and calling someone a wanker is still pretty great, sometimes the classics are the best.


#2

given that germany has basically all the best words anyway, i’m going to go with them.

nb. i don’t actually know any german insults so this is a total guess


#3

yeah I was hoping for some multi-lingual DiSers to show off with some cool swears/put downs in other languages actually


#4

the french tend to swear in long sentences. really gives it a sense of gravity when they’re going for it. let me find a few favs for you bammers


#5

i’m very sorry to have let you down, bam :frowning:


#6

fucking hell that would be great if they’re steamin’ angry and red in the face just ranting in super fast french. Like the E Honda slap of insults


#7

you’ve never let me down mate don’t you worry x


#8

the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy CU


#9

weirdly I reserve prick for when someone’s REALLY pissed me off, even though it’s a pretty mild swear.


#10

tuckeresque


#11

It’s like taking a really big run up


#12

Go ndéana an diabhal dréimire do chnámh do dhroma

That the Devil will make a ladder out of your spine.


#13

#14

#15

#17

Irish insults are pretty wordy and descriptive. That’s from a list I found online! Here’s another:

Go ndéanfaidh an diabhal cipín dod’ dhá chois

That the Devil makes splinters of your legs.


#18
