Words like hello, love, and motherf*cker transcend cultures. (NSFW if your boss knows, like, a ton of languages.)

Cut Video, the same folks who brought you kids trying breakfasts from around the world and public restrooms from around the world, went around the world again to learn how different cultures curse at each other. There's a surprising number of words that are universal, but the really interesting ones are the weirdly specific put-downs like "green tea bitch" (from Shanghai), "tapeworm" (from Ethiopia), and just straight up telling someone "your dad is dead" (Thailand). Hooray for multiculturalism!
