Punjabis have three things that they are proud of Food, their Culture and Cuss Words!
Oh yes! You read it right! Punjabis have hilarious cuss words that might sound offensive, but are often said out aloud in good humour.
If you ever come across a Punjabi guy with a high-spirited soul, you are bound to hear cuss words like ‘teri pen di’ and ‘Cunjar’ even in a friendly conversation. Yes! That is how they are, they can make even monotonous conversations hilarious!
Most people get offended by the cuss words that refer to body parts of your ahem… mummy and sister, but we will focus on the non-offensive cuss words here.
Disclaimer: Even then, do not try them on your parents or elders! If you get bitch-slapped or whupped, don’t blame us! We warned you! 😛
Try these on your friends 😉 Amaze them with something new!
Alright! Drum roll please…. No! Dholak roll please!
Here are the 7 Punjabi cuss words that will make you roll in laughter! Kick back your socks and be prepared to laugh your guts out!
- Boo Da Boja – Smelly Idiot
If you have a friend who smells and doesn’t maintain proper hygiene, yell out ‘Boo de bojey’! Don’t forget to tell them the meaning. Force them to repent and die in guilt if they do not take a bath even after this insult! 😛
- Tuare Booth Pan Chate Hai? – Do You Want Your Face Broken Mister?
Literally it means, you have enough wings to fly high now? Let me bring you down and beat the shit outta you!
If you have a blabbermouth or know-it-all friend, use this cuss as a counter measure to shut them up for good. This might make them fear you! 😛
- Dhaun Napp Deyange Tuhaddi! – Hold Him By The Neck And Make His Squeal!
If there is someone who is annoying you beyond comparison, hold up their collar and yell this out! That outta scare the nightmares out of him! 😛
Be advised, this cuss words are used by Punjabi daddies when they want to beat their child for misbehaving. You have been warned again 😉
- Onda Phuddu Lagge Ai – He Is Very Lucky!
If any of your friends passes his/her exam without even studying, say this to him! It literally means someone who got lucky even when he/she didn’t work that hard for it or got something out of the blue!
- Shaitaan Diyaan Poonch! – Naughty Little Fella!
This totally applies on naughty kids who simply don’t stop running around or creating mischief! 😛 Remember how you too were a ‘Shaitaan Diyaan Poonch’ yourself when you were a kid! 😀
- Chitta Baandarr/ Kaala Baandarr – White Monkey/ Black Monkey
If you have a friend who is despicably fair or dark, you might jestingly call them this. If you get punched, we won’t take you to hospital! 😛
- Pendu! – Illiterate Sardaar Or Someone Who Is From Rural Punjab
This is normally said for someone who is stubborn or isn’t very smart. If you yell out Pendu! At someone, make sure you are yourself a non-Pendu first! Who knows, maybe you are yourself a Pendu!
