    How the swear like a Brit

    This is an international forum, with members from around the world, which I think is the cat's pajamas.

    However, language differences can lead to misunderstandings and miscommunications.

    So, in the interest of promoting and maintaining good international relations, I present you with this instructional web page:

    11 Stellar swear words that Americans should borrow...

    Be sure to watch the instructional video.
    Those who have suffered understand suffering and therefore extend their hand.

    I can't do everything, but I can do something.

    Scratches neck, a bit embarrassed.

    Um. As a Brit to Americans she rather likes. Don't do it, you just sound like bloody numptys in my experience. Probably a lot like when I say 'dude' (And I do, to my shame.)

    I'm at a loss. "Numpty" wasn't on the list...
