I'd look - but my browser tells me the site is trying to rape it with ActiveX evilness.

You're equipped with the intellect of a little pancake.

You're a mistake of evolution.

Your dick is so small that your mother placed a sign near it that says: "Don't squeeze it, it's a penis."


Ach, my proud Dutch heritage... all that brilliance and six ways to say "motherfucker" too...

This would be even better if it weren't loaded with shit trying to get on to my computer.

Try the Profanisaurus if you're just looking for some updates to your blue vocabulary. The original version is at the Viz site, but this one is browsable.

The list of French swear words must have been put together by an American (i.e. one who speaks only English). Most of the entries in there have no swearing in them at all, and a lot of the other ones I've never heard even once before.

In Icelandic, penis is tittlingur. Seems counterinuitive, does it not?

I think we should've been warned on the FPP about that ActiveX control. I'd go for it but I need this laptop for work.

Yup, my antivirus and Pest Patrol are havin' a party since I went to that link.

Sorry 'bout that! Good intentions, honest.

The computer I was using when I found this didn't have the anti-virus on, so I see what it does now. Didn't even occur for me to check.

Awesomely awesome.

wow! Thanks Slack-a-gogo!
Profanisaurus is giving me immense joy! The linky links are creating my own lil 'choose-your-own-adventure'!
Fish-mitten to dreadnought in way too many steps!

I so love that wikipedia entry for F***.

Acutally, I love the etymology nerds that appear to run rampant on wikipedia.

I dunno, my penis is usually quite pleased when I lingur over a titt.

Tittlingur in Icelandic is also a little bird... and is the definition that most of us foreigners hear first. I think it's an attempt to amuse the natives, trying to devise ways to get people to say "ooh, look at that penis over there" without knowing it.

Also, vagina is píka. Which I learned while watching Pokemon and having to have my Icelandic significant other explain to me exactly what was so funny about Pikachu yelling "pika pika!"
