For some reason, many people are fascinated with swear words in foreign languages. Frequently, people I meet ask me how to say them in Polish. I've only given in a few times and I've always regretted it later.

Imagine hearing someone yelling the k-word everytime they see you! Or repeating it over and over endlessly at a party.

But swear words are a very interesting topic when looked at intellectually. In English, it's amazing all the different meanings that the f-word can have! Swear words are often some of the most versitile and colorful words in any language.

Today's article is a guest post by skorway on YouTube (who is a Pole) about all the different meanings and variations of the Polish swear word pierd*lić.

Note: That's not really how the word is spelled, the asterisk is to censor it (just like typing "f**k" in English). The full article is UNCENSORED and may not be appropriate for some readers! You have been warned.
