During an argument it is used to express feelings of anger or used when excited or within a conversation with friends.
Patois: Bumbo-pussy-raasclaat, cuh deh!!
English: What the fuck! Look at that!
- Kiss mi rass
An expression of extreme shock or surprise. It is similar in meaning to “What the fuck” or “Holy Fuck”.
Patois: Kiss mi rass! Wah mek yuh wear dat ?
English: What the fuck! Why did you wear that?
A combination of Jamaican curse words “bumbo” and “rass”, this term is use to express extreme anger or shock
Patois: Weh di bumborass yuh did guh wid mi kyar?
English: Where the f**k did you go with my car?
- Suck yuh madda
A very offensive curse phrase used to disrespect someone while indirectly, also disrespecting their mother. Although the literal meaning of this phrase is to go and suck one’s own mother, the actual meaning is similar to the curse phrase “Go fuck yourself”. Directing this phrase at some Jamaicans is often taken personally and will probably result in a fight.
Patois: Pussyhole, go suck yuh madda
English: Motherfucker, go and fuck yourself
Popular Jamaican curse word use to express strong anger or frustration
(patois) Pussyclaat! Wha mek yu do dat?
(english) Fuck! Why did you do that?
Jamaican curse word use to refer to someone who is strongly disliked
(patois) Pussyhole! Gi mi yu money
(english) Motherfucker! Give me your money
One of the most popular swear words in Jamaica. Though this word doesn’t have an actual meaning or english translation, it is mostly used as an exclamation of shock, surprise, anger, frustration or for any other intense emotions.
This term is sometimes combine with other Jamaican expletives such as bloodclaat or pussyclaat. For example, bumbo-bloodclaat or bumbo-pussyclaat.
Bumboclaat is actually a very vulgar swear word so you can get arrested for using it around police officers as well as dismissed from a class or formal business place.
Patois: Wah di bumboclaat wrang wid yu! Yu a eediat?
English: What the f**k is wrong with you! Are you an idiot?
Bloodclaat is used as an adjective when cussing. The direct translation is Blood Cloth, meaning sanitary towel! Pussyclaat also translates to Pussy Cloth, same ting… Raasclaat and Bumboclaat and Battyclaat translate as Bum Cloth, as in toilet roll!
I dont really feel to put a cuss here, lets just say if someone calls you a bloodclaat they are implying that you are the recipricant of body waste! In simpler terms, you are filthy!
Patois: How di bloodclaat yuh fi duh mi like dat?
English: How the f**k could you do me like that?
Derived from the word ‘fuck’, Fuckery is something that is absolute bullshit or utter nonsense
(patois) Yu a chat fuckery!
(english) You are talking bullshit!
