I’ve just got on to the The Allusionist, the best words-related podcast I’ve found. I highly recommend it.
I decided to start from the beginning and the fourth episode from back at the start of 2015 is all about profanity. Host Helen Zaltzman takes a poll on what people think is the rudest word in the language and the winner by a long way is “cunt”.
It got me thinking about what I consider to be the most offensive item in the modern Australian lexicon.
