Last semester, I took a socioling course at my Uni (low level, easy credits and GPA booster, as well as being my field of interest) and ended up doing a presentation on swearing. As a point of interest, and just for flavour, I'd done an informal online survey of as many people as I could find. One of the questions was "What's the worst swear word you've ever used?" I was wondering if that would give any idea of what everyone considered to be the worst swear word.

What I actually got, was some very creative swearing, which has since made me curious as to what the best/worst swear a given person has heard or used. I'm mainly interested in English, as it's my native language and I understand the connotations thereof much better, but any interesting compound swears would be wonderful! This is just for my own personal interest, really, though I may come back and ask it more seriously later~
