Kiwi. Enjoyed reading and writing as a kid. Enjoy writing to myself sane. I like writing letters to the editor, and to companies giving feedback on their products and services.

@user463240 - It really depends on who's around. Of course it's a more mild swearword than 'cunt' or 'fuck', but depending on who you ask, it could be considered more obscene than 'crap' (some people see that as not a swear word at all). A kid could expect a cuff around the ears for saying 'bloody'.

@jwpat7 That's not certain. According to the wikipedia page there are several theories.

These are insults, but not swearwords.

comment Equivalent word for 'overseas' for a non-island country?
I think the reason you are being downvoted, is because this is a very clumsy expression.
