Motherfucker is a classic witticism that combines the clever jab of "Your mom" with the follow up punch of accused incest. Almost always used by one male to another and often followed by threats of violence.
Motherfucker is often censored in movies, television and music as "mother-lover", "mother[bleep]", "Mofo", "monkey fighter" or "motherkcufer"; in print, as "motherf*cker", "motherf***er"; in Christian literature as "**********".
Motherfucker has been a popular epithet for so long that it is one of the three English phrases most likely to be known by foreigners. The other two are "I want a Coca-Cola" and "I surrender."
Interestingly enough, it should be noted that most foreign languages have no litteral translation, and use "Son of a bitch" as an alternative.
- Italian: "Sei un figlio di puttana" (You son of a bitch).
- Russian "Ну ему сфинкс и говорит: разгадай загадку - пущу тебя к Единому Хранилищу Всей Информации. Разгадал. ЕХВИ ему и говорит." (You are a motherfucker)
- Brazilian: "Seu filho da puta" (You son of a whore).
- French: "Va niquer ta mère" (Fuck your mother) / "Fils de pute" (Son of a bitch).
- Quebecois French: "Osti d'enfant d'chienne" (Fucking dog offspring).
- Spanish: "Chinga a tu madre" (Lit. Fuck your mother).
- Narcissistic much?
- "The mental image of Jacko dancing and singing 'You are a motherfucker' to the tune of Hava Nagila has stuck with me.
- "YOU ARE A MOTHERFUCKING ASSHOLE FOR INSULTING US ROCK AND ROLL LOVERS FOR NO APPERENT REASONG. JUST BECASE YOU THINK THAT TODAYS SHIT IS MUSIC. THAT IS ANOTHER THING. NOT ALL OF TODAYS MUSIC SUCKS. TODAYS COUNTRY IS VERY GOOD. IT IS JUST POP AND RAP THAT COMPLETELY SUCKS. I AM GOING TO GIVE YOU NEGATIVE FIVE STARS.

- Jayson is in your extended network
- You say cunt like it's a bad thing
- "Why don't you decide that nothing is ever going to offend you ever again? That way I can state that you are a motherfucker. You fuck your mother. It's totally consensual, but you have sex with your parents. Often. And goats. You are a worthless sack of putrifying iguana shit. Your pathetic and juvenile ramblings on revolution are about as informed as an educationally-sub-normal gnat."
- "Dear motherfucker who stole my dry erase marker, You are a motherfucker. A plague on your family and death to your first born child. - Sincerely, Heather"
- "Really, I called you a mother fucker and not a mother forker. There is a difference, a fucker is somebody who has sex with someone. I think that you have sex with your mother. Therefore you are a motherfucker. You fuck your mother, in fact you are probably fucking her now. You fuck your mother in the ass. She paid you one dollar, sorry.. nononono! YOU paid her one dollar to fuck her up the ass. After you had fucked her asshole she sucked your cock and then you squirted nut all over her face and in her hair. Then you got your dogs and made your dogs fuck your mother and then everyone in the village fucked her in the ass while you watched and took pictures. After eveyone in the village fucked her you let everyones dogs and cattle all fuck your mother up the ass. You made her suck your dick while they were fucking her. MOTHERFUCKER! - God bless you, Reverend Mary"
