    I saw. Some very odd ones. How does "oral sex" become an insult? Are they just putting random words and then leaving it up to the person to create phrases and insults to themselves?

    Be creative! Insulting people only shows your intelligence when you're creative with your insults.

    I suppose it works best that way. But then the person on the recieving end of the insult will find the insult amusing, more so than insulting, don't you think? Are you being sarcastic, hassun? Because I can sometimes be very dense when I get a taste of my own medicine. How can being creative with insults show your intelligence?

    Hmmm...well I skimmed through most of that list that Hassun posted the link to and I gotta say that they're a a few or rather a suprising number of misunderstood words and/or phrases.

    Sure, most of them are translated to their "literal" meaning but that doesnt mean that it really means that.

    One example: They translated "Jiji" as bastard. Jiji is what some ppl would refer to an old man. Sure, its not the most respectful way of reffering to an elder but it also doesnt mean that the person has disrespect to that person. It really depends on the context and the relation the person has to the one being reffered to.
