Ok, this is kind of relevant but in Icelandic if we say someone is an asshole we mean that the person is cute... another word we use for cute is rúsína = raisin.

P.S. the Icelandic word for asshole is rassgat.

Angela, is this how one says it?

LOOK!!! Such an asshole/raisin/rassgat!

Yup... You would say, in Icelandic, Hann/hún er algjört rassgat = he/she is such an asshole.

I have some great Catalan and Spanish words if anyone would find them useful? Although surely it's not nice to travel to another country only to swear at the locals!!!!

My favorite as of late is "Mutfak". Literal Turkish translation is 'kitchen', but that's not exactly what people think you're saying...

It's fun to pick up other terms while travelling and then use it here at home.

I tend to use wanker a lot, bullocks, and a dutch term that I am not even going to attempt at spelling, I just know how to say it.

Also, not that it's swearing, but I did call a good Filipino friend of mine "pookie" once, which is a cutesy term here in North America, but not in the Phillipines (where it means vagina)
