Answer Me True

So, after a few comments made in a previous post, I'm curious now to how many 'bad' words relate to the female body--and how many insults are associated with women in general. Other languages count. In fact, I especially want to hear about the baddest of the bad words in other languages.

The Cantonese version of "cunt" is "hai" pronounced like the "hai" in "hai-ya" when you go do a karate chop. Emphasis is on the "i" which is an upper inflection.

For added oomph, you can add "chull" (rhymes with "hull") as a prefix. "Chull" means "smelly" and serves in a similar way to "fuck" when used like "fan-fucking-tastic".

Man, a linguistic major is useful!

wait, are you saying 'smelly cunt' can mean the same as fan-fucking-tastic? cause chull hai seems more like an insult, while fan-fucking-tastic is a bit more of a self depreciating thing, or, in some cases, a sign of ultimate coolness.
