French swear words, as with swear words in general, often make reference to bodily excretions, orificial waste, sexual acts, incest, wedlock-free conception and sun-deprived body parts. But in our usual stubborn manner, we like to do things a little different here in Quebec. And our French swear words do a spectacular job of verbalizing that.
“Tabernacle” is one of Quebec's most popular French swear words, one usually employed to express irritation, pain, discouragement, outrage, anger, joy and/or excitement.
A popular French swear word in Quebec, "hostie” is the French word for “host.” But this not just any host. And Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper might have eaten it. Or not.
In close contention with tabernacle, another choice French swear word in Quebec is “calice.”
One of Quebec's gentler swear words, "sacrement" is a little harsher than "oh diddly darn." But barely.
Can't say "vierge" is used that often, but it's a still a swear word of note, easily incorporated into an impromptu string of slurs.
