An American woman, visiting Germany for the first time, sees a German man peeing in a trash bin in a park. "Gross!" she shouts. The man looks up at her, winks, and says, "Danke!"

I should think it ranks very highly in the voting for best swearing language.


I think it's no coincidence that most swearing, particularly stronger swearing, in English goes straight back to Old English, i.e. a Germanic language.

I`m wondering if there`s any swearing in English that isn`t either Germanic or religious in origin. Piss, maybe. I think that`s Latin via Norman French.

Not sure the Queen of the Night is going to help IAB'ers see the lighter side of German. =^.^= I kid. It`s a beautiful aria.


I was (jokingly) saying that opera is to blame for German having a reputation as a harsh language, hence my choice of an aria in which a monumentally angry woman is commanding her daughter to stab someone to death:
