Some people curse, others don't.
So these lists will either be highly offensive to you, or just part of your daily vocab.
The UK’s communications regulator, Ofcom, interviewed over 200 British people on how offensive they found a long list of 150 rude words, curses and insults.
Proceed with caution.
The following were ranked as mild:
- Jesus Christ
These were ranked as medium:
- Pissed/pissed off
- Son of a bitch
Good ol' feck.
The following were crowned as strong:
- Beef curtains
Beef curtains... ew.
Honestly, the majority of those made me squirm. Maybe I just don't watch enough British TV...
And, finally, the strongest of the strong:
Do you agree? I dunno, I feel like the last list was more offensive than these guys. Fuck and motherfucker? I didn't even flinch.
Maybe we just hear these more in Ireland...
I think we can agree on one thing – British curse words are bizarre.
Check out the complete findings below:
