Ell oh ell! Though you know that's actually pretty freakin' annoying. I made my brother stop shouting "ROFFLE" because it drove me up a wall.

I didn't come up with this one, but I always found "fuckwad" to be particularly amusing.

Australian slang also has a plethora of insults...such as wanker...that's a nice one.

Still, I've always liked Colonel Potter's exclamations on MASH...monkey muffins!...buffalo bagels!...horse hockey!...the list goes on...

motherbitchcow.

The magazine 2000AD brought some interesting curse words to the fore, being a magazine for younger readers. Judge Dredd had the curse words "drokk!" and "stomm!" where as Rogue Trooper used "skev" and as I recall, the comic adaptation of the game "Urban Strike" was the first time I heard "Muddy Funster" as a substitute for mother fucker.

This is a thread about curse words. Just say the damn word you mean, instead of obfuscating it.

Dan Abnet introduced "Feth" to WH40k.

I like the way there's "Oh Feth" "Feth you" and a man-portable RPG is a tread fether.

My friends and I once made one up which meant "smegma", but I can't remember what the word actually was. Unfortunately our use of it only lasted for about a month.

"Shit-licking" tends to be one of my favorites, as it does not have the abstract imagery of "shit-eating", but in fact a detailed vision of someone tasting feces.

"Toadfucking" or "dogfucking" works occasionally, as well.

Shitlicking is full of win.

Shitlips is kinda good too. Almost like brownnose, but better. I need to find a word that goes well with 'cess' too. Cesshead?

My friend and I had a period where we called someone hoofd (dutch for head) if we were annoyed with him. One day there were 2 guys pushing each other and they hit my friend, so he called him a head. For some reason he answered (translated): "I don't have a head." We walked away and seconds later realised what he had said actually...

I have also used face-head, though not for a while now.

I am fond of using the word "curses", or blast, or dang darnnit. Or mixing Ned Flanders with Yosemite Sam. I almost never use the f-word, and when I do it actually gets a reaction to it. (Similar to the other person who said the same thing).

I tend to produce strings of curse words. Mostly along the lines of Rotz-Dreck-Kacke-Scheiße-Popel (snot-dirt-crap-shit-booger). A clip of all noughty words in The Big Lebowsky impressed me a lot, though, so that I'm actually going through a phase of fuck-shit-fucking-fuck-fucking-shit-fuck-fuck-fuck-fucking-fuck-bullshit-vagina.

When I absolutely abhor something, I call it 'The Opposite'.
'The opposite of what, tiny?'
'The Opposite of Everything!'
Some people I know adapted it. Apparently it describes the feeling rather well.

I'm quite fond of the insult/curse "custard(s)". It nicely merges cunt with bastard and works in all kind of family friendly situations.

Allow me, off the top of my head:

Cum-guzzling gutterslut. Douchetard. Cuntbag. Donkey dicksucker. Butthook. Assmaggot. Whore-hounding hatmaster. Tampon-eating dadsacker. Fuckwit. Cunt-thumping dingledick. Cherrypopping slutslapper. Assbagging stumpthumping betel-breathed cunt-crossed camel-backed buttfucking farteater.

Throw in the occasional Allah, God, Christ, or Buddha. Use alliteration. Buddha's balls! Cracker-Christ in a cunt! Allah's asscrack!

Mix and mingle: Buddhabanging buttthumper. Donkeywhoring Christslut.

Good for general exclamation or for insulting a fellow being.

It's really not that difficult to come up with something interesting on the spot. Just take a bunch of funny, gross, and taboo words and throw them together in different combinations. Just because you're angry or frustrated is no reason not to be creative. Longer is not necessarily better, unless you're talking penises or orgasms.

I'm not saying I'm going to be winning any poetry contests here. I'm just saying: elaborate.

I find that trying to use nonsense words or invented curses just doesn't offer the same cathartic release of tension as an honest-to-goodness, offensive-to-the-general-population profanity. It must be the actual public consensus about a particular word that gives it its power to really work even when you're alone. A good resounding FUCK just feels so much better when you crush your finger in a door than POOHEAD, no matter how hard you try to sell it.

That said, I also just string together curses in as inappropriate a way as I can muster. Feels pretty good to me when I've let out a 'fuck cunt ass-nuts fuck fucking fuck-fuck' when I really need to. I guess I've got a little bit of Cartman in me after all.

Although there is something geekily romantic about calling someone a s'wit or a fetcher...

So far, I've got a sense of humor.

Ex.

"You're such a phlook."

"Nice way to phlook that test, dick face."

"This food tastes so phlook!"

sounds too much like fluke though (aussie english)

Fluke (flʏ:k)
v. to do, accomplish or achieve great things by accident. E.g. "I fluked that test" i.e. "I passed it completely by accident"
n. an accidental accomplishment. E.g. "That trick was a complete fluke"

I hope you die in hell!

I'm thinking that a random curse-word generator should/does exist to give us fan-fucking-tastic curse words.
preferably including the opportunity of infixes. because I am a big fan of re-fucking-dickulous.

That means pellets of dragon dung, doesn't it? I can't remember where I read that, but... Ah. Wiki tells me I read it in a L'Engle book. Damn good author, that woman.

When I really want to curse creatively, I go for the poetic, metaphorical, or just plain long and complicated. When I want to, I can really unleash hell to wish someone ill.

Short, off-the-cuff curses for people include:

Spoiler:
"May you outlive your children."
"Catch an unknown disease."


And of course the classic:
Spoiler:
Go shit in the ocean.

I made an account just for this thread :D

Anyways... some of my favorites are "Cluster-Fuck- 1.Verb, to completely screw something up "He cluster-fucked it to death" "We are sooooo cluster-fucked""
Another one I like is "Fuck Fuck Fuckity Fuck Fuck Fuck" It starts out extremely stressful :x , crescendoing to "Fuckity" :twisted: after which all vocal stress is removed, then a decent in pitch and volume till the last "Fuck" is nothing but a whisper 8)

In my Honors Physics class we play a lot of a card game called shit-head, one day the teacher asked what we were playing and one of the kids in German IV tells her we're playing "Sheiz-koff(spelling?)", which is German for shit head(unless that kid is shitting me), long story short, we end up saying sheiz-koff in place of other words in physics, hilarity ensues.

FUBAR is a military term, I believe, pronounced Fuh-Bar, it stands for Fucked-Up-Beyond-All-Recognition(Or Reason or any other 'R' word you like)

Just a few of my faves, I'll talk to my friends tomorrow and maybe make another post later :D

Another fun little thing to do is take already well known curse words and remix them by using them in different parts of speech that they would normally not be used in.

"You FUCKING GOD DAMMIT!!!"
"Did you just call me a 'God Dammit?'"
"Yes, yes I did"

"You little fuck"
"You fuck and a half"
"Could you cunt this up any more?"

Or making little hyphenated phrases that follow a pattern, such as 'Noun/Adjective - Progressive Verb - Adjective - Noun(Descriptive noun referring to a person)' My Best Friend and I do this a lot when we're board, we end up making up a lot of really funny ones on the fly. Also, they normally have a theme throughout.

Cum-Guzzling-Road-Whore! (A hoe/slut)
Carpet-Munching-Cock-Stomper! (A dike)
Poo-Packing-Butt-Pirate! (Although appearing aimed at the gays, it is not. My friend used this on me because he thought my new shirt made me look like a Guido(Slut is to woman as Guido is to man), it's an attack on Guidos and they're lack of security in their sexuality)
