Minced oaths

allthingslinguistic:

speutschlish:

The joder post got a lot of hilarious notes about minced oaths in other languages. Being home sick last week, I had some time to go through all the separate threads and put them all together (but I might have missed some). Enjoy the swearing!

Spanish

joder (f*ck) —> jo, jopetas, jopé, jolín, jolines (speutschlish), jopelines,  jobá, jobar, joer, joé (vickymaus)

mierda (sh*t) —> miércoles (Wednesday) (spanishskulduggery)

carajo (penis) —> caracoles (snails) (cancionesparalaluna)

chingado (f*cking) —> chihuahuas (ponte-vanima)

me cago en X (I sh*t on [whatever]) —> mecachis (linguonerd)

coño (c*nt) —> ño (alwaysdignity)

French

merde (sh*t) —> Mercredi (Wednesday) (jaimetalangue)

Québecois

câlice (chalice) —> câlin de bine (allthingslinguistic)

tabarnac (tabernacle) —> tabernouche (allthingslinguistic)

criss (Christ) —> crimpuff (creampuff) (psqqa)

foké, f*cking (French version of English f*ck) —> used commonly without the negative connotation of the English words (leninsy)

Finnish

 perkele (goddamnit) —> perjantai (Friday) (aofunk)

English

sh*t —> sugar (saoili, learn-learn-learn-learn-teach)

Italian

merda (sh*t) —> mercoledì (monkey-freaking-business), merlo (uninterrupted-mournfulness)

cazzo (dick) —> cacchio (quickermorequickly, doug-zestien), cavolo (doug-zestien)

Neapolitan

pataterno —> pataturco (padreterno in Italian) (doug-zestien)

Portuguese

foda(s) (f*ck) —> fogo (fire) (shakespearebeatschocolatelit)

German

Scheiße (sh*t) —> Scheibenkleister (slice glue), Scheibenhonig (honey still in the comb), Sch…ade. (pity) (ooksaidthelibrarian)

Polish

kurwa (whore) —> kur…zapiał (The rooster crowed!), kur…ka wodna (moorhen), kur…czę blade (pale chicken), kur…czę pieczone (roasted chicken), ku…pa jeża (hedgehog poop) (magicmattie), kur… Warszawa nie hoduje (Warsaw doesn’t breed chickens), kurde (spoopymeow)

sukinsyn (son of a b*tch) —> sukinkot (cat of a b*tch) (magicmattie)

(And yes, I have a mother tongue-bias where I have to censor the English because it’s too strong for me.)

I think you missed the English “Friday” for “fuck”, at least in that one censorship example (“I have had it with these monkey-fighting snakes on this Monday-to-Friday plane!”).

The Polish for “son of a bitch” actually reminds me that my grandfather regularly says “son of a gun”, although generally as an exclamation (“why, son of a gun!”) rather than as an epithet (“that son of a gun!”). 

Hungarian

bassza meg (fuck it)  -> basszus kulcs (bass key)

"WHY DO THEY ALWAYS SLICE THEIR PALM TO GET BLOOD. do you know how many nerve endings are in your hand?!?! why don’t they ever cut the back of their arm or their leg or something omfg"

me everytime a character in a movie has to get a few drops of their blood for some ritual bullshit  (via jtoday)

WHILE WE’RE AT IT, why do people try to cross those skinny bridges over lava/chasms/whatever by walking upright. IT’S CALLED CENTER OF GRAVITY. get on your hands and knees and crawl across that thing. HUG IT. SCOOT YOUR BUTT ACROSS. “but i look stupid!” lalalala but we’ll avoid that ~dramatic moment~ where you almost fall over and die because your damn fucking self wanted to look COOL

(via jtoday)

and stop yanking IV lines out of your arms the minute you wake up in the hospital 

(via panconkiwi)

That is a broadsword, why are you fencing with it

(via gallifrey-feels)

There is a freaking door right there. Stop smashing through windows, damn it.

(via intheforestofthenight)

yes, mr. action hero, I am aware that running dramatically from the baddies at breakneck speed is important, but know what else is important? NOT GETTING SHOT. RUN IN A FUCKING ZIGZAG PATTERN ON THE OFF CHANCE THAT THE MOOKS WERE NOT COACHED IN MARKSMANSHIP BY THE IMPERIAL STORMTROOPERS.

(via pterriblepterodactyls)

Oh, hey, you there, sneaky hero-type breaking into any place for any reason? WEAR SOME FUCKING GLOVES. They’re called fingerprints, dumbass. You have them and you’re putting them all over the fucking place.

(via dawnpuppet)

If something really fucking huge is falling on you, don’t FUCKING RUN ALONG THE LENGTH JUST TAKE LIKE TWO FUCKING STEPS TO THE SIDE

(via takshammy)

wEAR A FUCKING HELMET OBERYN YOU LITTLE SHIT

(via brigwife)

And for god’s sake, PUT PRESSURE ON THAT WOUND, DON’T SIT THERE AND WATCH THEM BLEED OUT. I’m talking to you, TV cops.

(via fixyourwritinghabits)

Check for a pulse damn it!

Aw thanks! The photographer was my sister, so for the quality of the shot, all credit goes to her.

(This is actually pretty close to how I dress every day, just imagine it with a different scarf, a less formal vest, a leather jacket and a black Aussie cowboy hat.)

(And Watson’s hat belongs to my mom. How it’s supposed to be a lady’s hat is beyond me. I mean I don’t care if what I wear isn’t feminine but she does.)

(Is it just me, or do I really look like Matko Destanov from Black Cat White Cat…?)

Tumblr is being weird and now I can’t answer asks with pictures… So:

So I set out to make my blog more readable which proved to be impossible with the current theme, so I kinda had to change the whole thing…

I’m obviously part of many fandoms, but he brings up a lot of good points about why fandoms often are seen negatively by other people

Funny with some valid points. :) (I obviously don’t hate fandoms, by the way. But it’s still kinda true.)
