How to Swear like a BRIT.

Well hello there.  Want to learn how to swear like a British person? Here you go mate.  You are welcome.

1. For goodness sake!

Pretty mild but yet effective.  Used by octogenarians mostly. For real.

2. Bollocks

This one is stronger and can be used in a variety of ways.  You can use this when something goes wrong. You forgot your wallet? ‘I’ve forgotten my purse (wallet)-oh bollocks!’ Or if you are telling someone off you can give them a ‘right bollocking.’ Or if someone is telling a lie you can simply glare at them and say ‘bollocks!’

3. Bloody

This one is pretty well known. I believe it comes from the German word ‘btutg’ which also means bloody.  I say ‘bloody’ on the daily.  ‘What a bloody mess!’ or ‘What bloody time do you call this? I have to come to work at 8am?’

4. Pissed

In the US this means ‘angry’. In the UK it means you are well and truly drunk.  Or if you are planning on getting drunk you say ‘I am going on the piss’ or if you are making fun of someone its called ‘taking the piss out of someone’ or if you want someone to go away you say ‘Piss off!’

5. Sod

We all know that sod is soil with grass on it.  Although, we totally ignore the true meaning in the UK.  ‘Sod off’ means ‘go away’ it is a bit stronger than ‘piss off.’  Or it can be used to describe someone-‘what an inconsiderate sod’ or it can be used to add emphasis-for example: ‘have you seen my sodding glasses?’ Back home in the US, Sod’s law is the equivalent to Murphy’s law.

And that is all she wrote.

Cheers Y’all

    Cool! Now I can curse in two languages. Well, actually three since my deaf friend taught me some sign language curses. See, I’m all multilingual now…
