Sexting no more: Pakistan’s hilarious list of 1,795 expletives to be banned on SMS

November 17, 2011

Whoever made the English and Urdu lists deserves an award, though I did find some Pakistanis who knew expletives that were not on the lists.

Thanks to this helpful compendium many Pakistanis are finding their expletive vocabulary enhanced. @UroojZia asked what “BUMBLEFUCK” and “LADYBOOG” meant. @Zakoota said the lists should be required reading in schools to give children the vocabulary to describe politicians and cricketers. With the amount of phrases that include the word “BUTT”, @KhaLeak wondered if Aijaz Butt was banned as well. [My story for FirstPost.com]

    Variations of “chhipkili ke…” I am to understand are quite popular in UP.

    Apart from “Chipkali ke gaand ke pasine”, I can recall ““Chhipkali ke choot ke pasine” (obvious) and the somewhat more elaborate ““Chhipkali ke chut ke baal ke pasine””/“Chipkali ke jhaant ke pasine”.

    I owe this knowledge to a friend from Meerut.

    This website seems to be in transition to a pornographic one.
