40 Ways To Tell Someone To F*ck Off In A Different Language

Knowing how to curse someone out in a different language is maybe not the most necessary skill in the world, but it’s not the least. My family speaks Hindi and sometime after I learned how to ask for a cup of water, I insisted they teach me how to swear. It was pretty enlightening. If you’re going to learn the basics of a new language, profanity should always be included.

This list is courtesy of these wonderfully foul-mouthed sites, as well as people from all over the world who were a little too excited to teach me to curse in their language. The non-Latin script is not included because this list is offensive enough without it becoming apparent that my mastery of a modern keyboard isn’t good enough to type Chinese characters. My bad.

Half of these phrases really do mean fuck off, and the other half are a compilation of other useful curse words. This is partially because fuck off doesn’t translate in every language, and partially because I can only type the word fuck so many times before I rethink every conversation I’ve ever had and doubt my life choices.

NSFW. Unless you work in Hollywood, a 50s ad agency, or in an office where it’s appropriate to call someone a son of a fucking cocksucker.
