If you're offended by the c-word, stop reading.

Nothing is as effective as homeopathy.

I'd rather listen to an hour of Abba than an hour of The Beatles.

Whilst still a Very Rude Word over there, it does have a slightly different nuance than in the US. It would be much more common to call somebody a silly c*** (typically a male) than it would in the US. In the US, it seems to be more directly associated with being really, really insulting to women, which isn't the primary objective in the UK.

Twat is another word like that, no?

Yes, and quite frankly I love using that word :lol:

It's quite a bit less rude than the c-word, but still not something I'd call an elderly relative. At least, not within their hearing.

I learned shortly after arriving in Australia that fanny had a significantly different meaning there than it has in the USA.

I used to work with a gal from Sidney. Yeah, she always giggled when someone referred to a "fanny pack."

We called them bum-bags, for much the same reason. I still laugh at fanny-pack after being out of the country for 16 years.
