Hi guys,

I am in college, and in india, english is not the primary language. But, in college, we speak english only (common). The cool words are "bugger" to refer to a person, and "*** you" to show disgust towards somebody. But, i dont want to use either. Is there a more cooler variant of referring to a idiotic person? and, any lighter alternative for f u? How about alternatives for *** or just ***?

Some words for stupid

thicko
thicky
half-wit
dipstick
dipsh*t
dumb
dumbass
moron
s**t for brains

Some words for crazy/insane

nut job
fruit cake
fruit and nut
nuts
mental
bonkers

Jerk is also a good word for someone who's being a pain in the @rse (pain in the @rse is itself a good one)

All these words are relatively mild especially compared to the c*** and f** words which could get you in s***t if said to the wrong person.

English people have a tendancy to make up words or to distort the meaning of an existing word for the sake of slang (which I guess is why we have so much of it). So if you find yourself stuck for a good insult just call the person a funny inanimate object with perhaps 'face', 'head' or 'breath' appended to the end ('you turnip head' or 'mouldy cheese breath').

Hope this helps,

Isn't it funny how the swear words that are generally considered the strongest most offensive ones are generally names for the parts of our bodies that we use to procreate and that bring us the most pleasure! We really do have a hang up about the old S E X.

So call me a c**t if you like it's my favourite thing on earth.
Call me a f**er too, you wouldn't be wrong ( Though most of the time at present I'm more of a w**er).
But, call me stupid and you may just find you've overstepped the mark.

Wanker means prostitute. <<
Actually, no it doesn't. It means a person who masterbates.
It means an idiot, stupid person or someone that is doing something stupid or annoying as in "X is being a real tool" or "stop being such a tool"

A damning statement (especially one that is or could be true) made in plain language can be considerably more effective than stock profanity when it comes to damage. It takes more work and probably some research, but the results should be good.

Yes, but that's a pretty mean thing to do, and that would make you a douchebag! Swear words don't necessarily have to be used to hurt someone... Don't be such a douche.

Note: douche and douchebag are two "bad" words that are very popular now. Just to add something to this stupid thread. Emotion: wink
The word "Shag" is used very commonly in Britain
