What are the regional curse words where you live?

    I am curious, now that I reside in Georgia I have heard some people utter the phrase "bless your heart." It is always said in a saccharine sweet drawl by men and women alike. What kills me is that even Southerners who normally have no discernible drawl have one when they say "bless your heart."

    Perhaps I shouldn't be eavesdropping on strangers conversations but from the context in which I have heard it, bless your heart" seems to mean "fuck you." :biggrin1: Back in Jersey, particularly down the shore we would just say, "bite me." Sometimes it's, "Awww, that's a shame, bite me."

    Have I completely misinterpreted the meaning of this phrase? Are there other regional curse words about which I should know?

    Not really a curse word nj but Americans often use dear to us when they actually mean they think of us in a good way and want to let us know that, in Britain that's often used in a condescending sneering way, 'Yes dear,' with an implication that you're beneath someone but they're being nice to you.

    Bless your heart does not mean F U. When someone tells you something stupid they have done, you have to reply to be polite. So, instead of telling them they are a total dumbass, you tell them "bless your heart".
    Nj, Bless Your Heart!

    The use of 'Yes Dear,' is only with couples and it's usually used somewhat sarcastically but not condescendingly just so that the other party knows you heard them.

    tee hee hee Having grown up in the north and rather close to NYC I have to tell you it does not occur to many to be polite on a daily basis. :tongue: Hence my being a bit confuzzled.

    If someone is being a dumbass we usually just say, "you're being a dumbass" or perhaps "stupid." It doesn't have the panache of "Bless Your Heart" but the recipient always understands and is then able to reflect and adjust their previous statement if necessary.

    I have heard it and used it in Florida and British Columbia, especially around boatyards. And I have taught it to some locals where I live now!

    Hoser is one that I have only heard in Canada. Which means loser- the losing team had to hose off the ice after the game. It also means cheat or steal as in- "He hosed me".

    In Turkey if you say "eşol eşek" (Esholesheck) your calling him a donkey who is the son of a donkey. You better be prepared to put up your fists if you say that to loudly. There are many colourful expressions involving your mother's pussy as well.

    "Bless your heart" can be interpreted many different ways. It allows you to say what you want without causing unnecessary problems. Also, you come out smelling like a rose. Being polite is a way of life in the south. It makes for a nicer, calmer, and much happier existence. Who wants to argue all the time?

    Another thing we say is "You are so special". It means you rode the short bus to school.

    BLESS YOUR HEART njqt! You are one of the most special people I've encountered on lpsg. hahaha

    Fuck you and the horse you rode in.
