"Consider yourself fired................ dickhead."

[with great disdain] "You asswipe."


Wife's note: I just want to restate, for the record, that Adam truly is not himself in Dreamland. For example, I'm pretty sure that my British husband has never uttered the word 'asswipe,' a distinctly American insult, in waking life.

  1. I also didn't realize that you were British so I was very confused why your husband's alter ego got very British in his sleep. Why so many bollocks? But now I realize. I'm happy to see that our American culture has influenced his swearing =)

  6. While we're talking about cultural obscenities, I'd like to put this to rest once and for all:
    Does bollocks actually mean anything, or is it a word invented exclusively for vulgarity?

  7. Bollocks is just another word for balls.
    A vulgar one.

  8. Vulgar? I always consider it fairly inoffensive. Cheeky, even. Cor, right in the bollocks! Hehe. Great blog by the way, it's definately made for twitter, which I'm following it on! :D

  9. I'm american born and raised and don't think asswipe is as "american" as the wife thinks.
    I can't recall a time I've heard anyone use it, I'm sure I've heard it before , just can't think of any times and it's certainly not a term I or anyone is my family have used.

    Don't you think someone who isn't American would have a better perspective on swear words that aren't commonly used by non-Americans? I'd think so. And I hear, and use, asswipe all the time. In fact this blog post reminds me that I need to use it more!

  12. Bollocks is definitely vulgar. As in "everything you say is total and utter ...."

  15. "Bollocks is definitely vulgar. As in "everything you say is total and utter ....""

    That just depends on the context... saying "your talking crap" wouldnt be nice but you can say that on the BBC!

  17. Ass is essentially an Americanisation of Arse which the rest of the world use (ie Arsch in German).

    And how is bollocks a vulgarity? It's slang for the older slang balls, but it's certainly nicer to hear. And certainly amusing to the rest of the English speaking world to hear a Pom say it =D

  18. Being an American who has lived in many other nations... I have never heard 'asswipe' uttered by a non-American. I would just love to hear it spoken with British disdain! Keep these coming!

  19. "Asswipe" isn't really an American phrase. We Brits use "arse" instead of "ass". "Arse wipe" is quite a common British insult.

  20. It can easily be that he has heard some of these words that you have never heard him say and even some words that he doesn't remember ever hearing, so his subconscience mind recalls them and he just spits some of them out :P
    really funny stuff though

  21. i say asswipe all the time, and Im American. I dont know if that makes it American or just something I say all the time?

  22. your Spanish husband does?

  23. Oh yes...Asswipe is American....along with fuck stain.

  24. I am american, but I always thought bollocks was offensive, kind of like "bullshit" in American parlance. I remember there was a stir when JK Rowling had the character of Ron use that word. Apparently, some parents groups did not think it was appropriate language for a children's book.

    BTW... this blog has cheered up my whole office. We have all been ROTF reading it.
