* In Germany and the Netherlands, English curse words are used quite often and are usually considered to be less offensive than the German equivalent. So any German who visits the US should remember not to say shit or fuck as they're used to doing. Equally, whenever American media arrive in Germany or the Netherlands and the regarding curseword geets bleeped out, it often is met with confusion.

* Creator/GavinFree of ''Creator/AchievementHunter'', who is British, actually comes off as one of the cleaner Let's Players of the group in the US because he doesn't use "fuck", "shit" or "cunt" all that often, but he tosses off "bugger" and "bloody bollocks" without batting an eye.

* Subverted in MiamiVice. In the 80's, before the internet had opened up the world, most Americans had no idea what a wanker was, as demonstrated by the Series/MorkAndMindy script-writer above. Phil Collins, being English most certainly did know, and knew the Americans didn't; thus, as VillianOfTheWeek he was able to get away with turning to Crocket and Tubbs and saying "Do I look like some sort of wanker?" which would be a perfectly reasonable phrase for his (English) character to use.

** A old german way to say the N-word was to call a black person "Mohr". While especially younger people are no longer aware of this, older people are and find it regulary disturbing that especially chocolate products often have the word in their name ("Mohrenkopf" for a creme and buisquit product covered in chocolate meaning "A black persons head"). The biggest offender had been the chocolate brand "Sarotti" which regulary used the CatchPhrase "Die Schokolade mit dem Sarotti-Mohr" aka "The chocolate with the Sarotti-N***er".
* Whenever foreigners use german cussing, they tend to use "Scheiße" (which means "Shit"). It is a quite strong curse word equally to Fuck (which is ironically a quite gentle curse in Germany in direct comparison to "Scheiße").

** Note, too, that several of the major characters are well-known British actors and actresses, like Creator/HugoWeaving, Creator/JohnHurt, Creator/StephenFry, etc., and the author of the original graphic novel was Creator/AllanMoore, so the cast and crew weren't saying things to try and [[FakeNationality sound]] British.

* ''Film/VForVendetta'' has loads of American and British curse words, which makes for interesting viewing when it's on channels like FX or BBC America. In the States, they'll bleep the F-bombs, and if they're really uptight, every other curse word, but you can listen to every utterance of "Jesus ''bloody'' Christ" and sentences like "I won't have this thing getting any more ''bollocksed-up'' than it already is." unedited.
