*** "Belgium" as a swear word has actually made it out of the Hitchhikers series and into popular culture in other ways as well. [[ThemeNaming Stingray]] used the word on ''{{Neighbours}}''.

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' you're often called N'wah, fetcher or s'wit. The latter two are never translated, but the first roughly translates as "outlander" and has similar negative connotations as the Japanese "gaijin".

Added DiffLines:

* In ''WesternAnimation/VoltronLegendaryDefender'', "quiznak" seems to be (at least somewhat) offensive in Altean. The characters tend to use it in OhCrap moments, and Coran and Allura [[FunnyBackgroundEvent freak out in the background]] in Episode 1 when Lance tells Keith to "shut your quiznak!"
