10 imaginative insults from around the world

Thursday, February 13, 2014

Jessica Phelan of The Global Post compiles The world's 19 most imaginative insults. Here's the top 10:
1. Chinese: "Ni muqin shi yi ge da wugui!"
… or, "Your mother is a big turtle." Because turtles aren’t monogamous, get it? Zing!

2. Spanish: "Me cago en la leche!"
… "I sh*t in the milk." Imagine a pitcher of milk in the middle of the breakfast table. Now imagine a Spaniard defecating in it. Yes.

3. Russian: "Perhot’ podzalupnaya"
… you, sir, are "ass dandruff." For which there is no shampoo, oh no.

4. Finnish: "Äitisi nai poroja!"
… "Your mother married a reindeer!" File under "yo mamma."

5. Yiddish: "Lign in drerd un bakn beygl!"
… "May you lie in the ground and bake bagels." If that sounds like a rather pleasant way to spend eternity, consider this: those are bagels you will never get to eat.

6. German: "Schattenparker"
… "One who parks in the shade." Because you’d have to be a total wimp to take precautions against the sun turning your vehicle into an unbearable radiating hell box, am I right?

7. Jamaican: "Bumbaclot"
… literally, "ass wipe." So how does the word manage to sound so darn cute?

8. Albanian: "Të qifsha të bardhët e syve!"
… "F*ck your eye whites." It’s the specificity you have to appreciate here.

9. Turkish: “Sana girsin keman yayi!"
… "May the bow of a violin enter your anus." Not a concert we’d wish to attend.

10. Persian: "Mee goozam rangesh kon!"
… "Try to paint my fart," or less literally, "f*ck off." Unless, of course, you’re up for the challenge.

Actually that Finnish insult translates better to 'Your mother has sex with reindeers', as the last word is plural. The verb can be used to marrying too, but with many reindeers it doesn't work that well.
