I love etymology. And vulgarity.
I guess I say "skeevy" a lot. According to Rob. I hadn't noticed. Maybe I've just been telling a larger proportion of stories lately with skeevs in starring roles. But I thought about it today, and I wondered if "skeevy" comes from the Italian "schifo," which I understand to mean "disgusting." So I put the Internet to use -- and counted myself briefly grateful that I no longer live in the days when wondering something like this might force me to (a) go to a library, (b) ask a friend who would know the answer, or (c) call a radio station -- and didn't really find my answer but did find giant pleasure in reading the various insults, swears, and narrative declarations of vulgarity that it made available to me. (In that last clause, "it" meant "the Internet," as previously referenced, but the long, emdash-encased section may have made that ambiguous.) See for yourself.
Andate tutti a 'fanculo!
You can all go fuck yourselves!
Nessuno me lo ficca in culo!
Nobody fucks me up the ass!
Tua madre si da per niente!
Your mother gives it away!
Te lo tronco nel culo.
I'll fill in your ass.
Vaffanculo a Lei, la sua moglie, e' la sua madre. Lei e' un cafone stronzo. Io non mangio in questo merdaio! Vada via in culo!
You, sir, go fuck yourself--and your wife and your mother. You are a common turd! I'm not going to eat in this shithouse. Fuck you!
Ti metto il cazzo in culo e te lo faccio uscire dalla bocca.
If I put my dick in your ass, it's going to come out your mouth.
La tua madre puzza di pesce.
Your mom smells like fish.
Caccati in mano e prenditi a schiaffi.
Shit in your hand and hit yourself.
Il tuo cazzo è un brufolo.
Your dick's a pimple.
Sei una busta de piscio.
You're a fucking piss bag.
Sei una bolla de sborra.
You're a sperm-ball.
Cachi il cazzo.
You're shitting on my dick.
Uno che va in culo a sua madre.
That one ass-fucks its mother.
Non vale un cazzo
Not worth cum, i.e., useless
Female masturbation, i.e., finger banging
Cazzo di cane
You did that work very badly. (literally: a dog's dick)
Porca la Miseria/Porca Miseria)
Mille cazzi nel tuo culo
A thousand dicks in your ass
Se il cazzo avesse le ali, la tua fica sarebbe un aereoporto.
If a dick had wings, your pussy would be an airport.
Gesu e un cornuto.
Jesus is a cuckold.
Va funcuolo Dio and tutte e santi.
Fuck Christ and all the saints.
