Swearing American V English

Postby Robot of Sherwood » Thu Oct 17, 2013 4:27 pm

I was thinking the other day and the thought occurred to me that I had never heard the phrase "fuck off" spoken by an American in any movies,at least I can't recall anyway,it is ubiquitous in England and Australia,so why not the US?

Also what other swear words don't travel and are unique to a single country?

Motherfucker I think comes from the USA,gets used here a lot too,so that has traveled,possibly American swear words and phrases travel better because of the movies.

Obvious ones that we use that I don't think Americans do..

Fuck a duck sounds very English,I wonder if Americans say Cunt? I haven't heard it in any movies or TV shows,but then it doesn't get said in many of ours,it is almost a taboo word in film and TV.

Yes, American's use that C word - YouTube search: "Cunt on Today Show"

Can't show the clip for the person who say's it - but it's kinda funny out of context.

I like to think we English are more intelligent in our use of language, you might say arse is a cheeky word whereas ass is more indicative of long ears. Also would you rather kiss the English version of a fanny or an American version? :whistle:
