Full story here:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2094867/Dave-Fulton-US-comedian-blurts-w--r-realising-offensive-UK.html
Quote:

American dictionary Merriam-Webster defines 'w****r' as 'chiefly British, usually vulgar'.

To U.S. ears, the word just means 'a stupid person'.


So this means that if you want to insult your favourite lad by calling him "a stupid person", you can freely call him a w****r and blame it on the Yanks! Very Happy

(Of course this is not very effective if w****r has no meaning in Ladland... but hey-ho)

I'm assuming it's the W word that rhymes with banker.

The Americans rather say 'Jerk off'. As in, 'that guy's a real 'Jerk off' or Jerk for short.
There are about 94 terms meaning 'masturbation' so not surprised some have no real vulgar meaning there.

Ben, I was being facetious. Laughing

I think 'Wanker' is a much better insult than 'jerk off', personally - sadly, most folks in the US don't get it.

I think of a Wanker as a male body part being used like the term A-hole.

Not to be confused with a Wankel, which goes around in triangular circles.

I thought wanker was a proper business salutation. As in, Dear Wanker so-and-so.... At least, that's what I've been telling my lads. You mean I was misinformed? Twisted Evil

As an American, I wouldn't know how offended I should be by "wanker."

If you were ranking insults, would wanker be more or less severe than douche?

As another on this side of the big puddle, I am not offended in the least by that term. We have so many more derogatory terms for that!

It would be fun to just use the asterisks when communicating with a lad. If they ask why you're doing it, tell them to turn off their email client's profanity filter.

I believe so - I've always taken it to mean something a bit more than just 'a jerk off', with some underlying meanings.

Could be wrong, though.

Why would "douche" be an insult any more than "bain" or "évier"?

My English and Spanish are Leftpondian, but my French is Rightpondian, and my Portuguese is mixed. There are general pondian differences in English, Portuguese, and Spanish, but what about French? Is there enough similarity among Cajun, Québecois, and Guyanese French?

A Jack Vance novel was titled Servants of the Wankh. I don't recall if it was re-titled for the British market.

The Uk ranking of describing someone who is being a bit think/stupid annoying etc would probably go least to worst

plank
arse (ass)
wanker/tosser
shitbag
cock/dick/dickhead
fuckwit
and the dreaded C word (which for once im censoring)

personally i find the term bollocks is a great term that generally people outside of england have no idea what it means, although its use is growing.

Really? It ranks less than 'shitbag' or 'dickhead'?

I can see fuckwit, though - I only ever save that for special people....and can count the times on four fingers that I've ever referred to anyone as the dreaded C

^^ im my opinion yeah, but its a toughy to call really. Its a rough list of what i know i can get away with at work Laughing pending the situation/whom im talking to

In the UK anatomy is always worse than an inferred action

Thanks to a certain popular American movie about a guy that runs around in a mask, I've started hearing bollocks creep into popular use here Laughing

I rarely hear the term 'bollocks' and have always linked it with 'bullshit'...fairly minor here in OK.

Yay a profanity thread! When I hear tosser I just think of a scene in Silance of the lambs. When I hear wanker I just think of Austin Powers.

So wanker < dick?
Is "dick" terribly offensive over there, then? I have called my closest friends a dick for the most harmless of actions.


Sort-of-side-note:
Could we make a list of the most offensive insults to lads?

I usually use a lot of references to their family turning tricks or banging farm animals, but I'd love to know of a dreaded C word to use when chopping dollas, etc.

For chop insults the farmyard stuff, and "yo mamma" insults etc do rile them something nasty, however for the "c" word insults you need to know where they are from and potentially the tribe.

Having read several gerald durrel books, which are a great resource for finding tiny villages that exist and pidgin english words. An insult i picked up to use on someone from the cameroons is Ibo. Which is apparently a tribe from nigeria that the cameroonians hate, its the worst thing you can call them ~ apparently anyway.

So if I'm in the _' and someone calls me a wanker then I should be offended to the point of murder instead of amused at their silly accents and 3rd grade humor?
