Want to be able to say Balls, Bastard or even Bugger It in French or German? How about Italian or Spanish? How to Insult Your Hosts in Many Languages provides a tool to do just that. From I hate you to Thanks to your local cuisine, dieting has never been so easy, there is an insult for every occasion, handily translated for you into each of the four languages.
Just to ensure that foreign-language speakers don’t feel left out, there is also a selection of English-language slurs for them to use against the Great British, New Zealanders and Americans as well as a selection of random rudeness from such varied countries as South Africa, Wales, Norway and Portugal.
Of course, none of this is terribly politically correct, but it is pretty funny and the perfect gift for a backpacker off to visit Europe.
Not for the easily offended.
