Not sure if this will have legs, but here goes nothin... On the phone with a good friend (who is not in the happiest of marriages) and he was in the midst of complaining about something his young son was doing. As we were talking, his cell phone rang and he said something like, "And then my fucking cunt of a wife...there she is now. I gotta answer this." And I was taken aback, because he didn't say it in jest. And then it started a debate in my office...what's the worse word: cunt, or nigger? (C-word or N-word, if you're uncomfortable talking about it as we kind of were). Focus: What is the worse insult: the c-word or the n-word? Alt focus: Worst/best/favourite swears you've ever used.
