Rudest words in Britain
Wash your keyboard out with soap and water
It is the time of year again for the Broadcasting Standards Commission to release a list of rude words, in the order of how offensive we Brits find them.
This provides us with a terrific excuse to print lots of foul language. The Reg suspects it will use most of the words listed in the near future, bar the racist ones.
Significant movers this year: Slag is a bit more offensive, moving up two places to number 16. Bollocks, meanwhile, are less rude than two years ago and have slipped two places to number eight.
Following is a table of the offensive language, this year's ranking and its chart position two years ago. You can have fun trying to construct the most offensive, coherent sentence you can. Good luck. ®
