I know I’ve already posted two lists of Italian swear words – first my favorites and then your suggestions – but I received this gem a few months ago from a friend, and I knew I had to share it with you. It’s just too good to keep to myself.
I bring you an Italian insult worthy of its own post:
The note I got from my friend, who visited Italy over the summer, explains it perfectly:
Only the best insult ever, it means, literally, half a saw. But in every day use, it means ‘half a wanker’ — somebody who is so lazy, they can’t even finish their own job.
Now my only task is to find an excuse to use this one. Often.
