* ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneySpiritOfJustice'' combines this with PardonMyKlingon. The language of the [[FictionalCountry fictional Asian country]], The Kingdom of Khura'in, has a word "Pholkunan". According to Maya, it's used to refer to people who are "a real piece of work, so to speak". It's used constantly throughout the game, including the entire Khura'inese courtroom gallery chanting it Phoenix.

* Orthodox Jews in Israel generally adhere to the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hebrew_calendar Hebrew calendar]], which uses [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gematria gematria]] in place of numbers to mark days in a month. In colloquial Hebrew, the Arabic ''[[https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/%D9%8A%D8%A7 ya]]'', used originally as a vocative particle, is used before insults (kinda like ‘you’ in ‘YouBastard!’). And, it just so happens that the letters used to write ''ya'' in Hebrew (יא) also mean ‘11’ in gematria. All this leads to [[https://www.facebook.com/dosim.metsaitsimm/photos/a.408481085864747.87942.408459909200198/906656129380571 this]] very confusing conversation between a religious soldier and his non-religious IDF commander, who thought ‘Tammuz’ (the name of a month) to be some insult he must have misunderstood:

* In the 2005 game ''VideoGame/TheWarriors'' (based, of course, on the 1970s cult classic film), while the New York "tough-guy" characters cuss a blue streak anyway (just as in the movie), there is also some [[BilingualBonus untranslated Spanish]] when the characters take a side trip to Spanish Harlem, and some of the Puerto Rican expressions would be even ''more'' offensive than what is normally heard in the game were they to be rendered in English. Two examples are "''Me cago in tus madres''" ("I shit on your mothers") and "''puto''" (used repeatedly, and a ''very'' offensive name to call any male, since its connotation is somewhere between "bitch" and "faggot." [[labelnote:Note]]It literally means male prostitute. That being said, the word's so offensive you'll probably prefer to use synonyms when discussing male prostitution in Spanish (such as 'prostituto' or 'chapero').[[/labelnote]])

* Richie Kavanagh's song "Aon Focal Eile" -- a hybrid English-Irish song about a teacher teaching Irish. ''She said 'Aon focal, dá focal, trúir focal, eile' -- and I not knowin' no focal at all''. Translated to English means, ''She said 'One word, two words, three words, another' -- and I not knowin no word at all''. The humour is from the fact that "Focal" (an Irish word meaning "word") is pronounced "Fuckal". Sing along, children, '''[[http://youtu.be/DPqT6_TkU6Q here]]'''.

* Captain Picard of ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' has let slip a "merde" at least twice, in "The Last Outpost" and "Elementary, Dear Data" [[note]] a literal case of GettingCrapPastTheRadar[[/note]]. He also swore up a storm in Klingon in one episode. Even the visiting Klingon passenger was impressed (swearing being something of a respected art-form among Klingons).

[[http://www.youswear.com/index.asp?language=Farsi According to this]], her "''Kire asbe abi too koonet!''" translates to "hippo's cock in your ass".
