Learning common French insults/pejoratives?
Learning pejoratives can be a delicate manner, as there is only a narrow path between making a funny, juicy remark and getting your nose broken (or having a person never talk to you again). That's even more true in French, which has some queer courtesy rules at times. Looking at some internet site makes it hard to figure how offensive what you might say will be perceived. I learn my pejoratives by watching American sitcoms in French. This gives somewhat of a clue to the severity of the insult and makes it less likely to badly offend someone inadvertedly.
