    What the fuck

    Hi everybody!
    I'd like to know how you say "what the fuck" in your language. In Spanish we say "¿qué coño*...?" and in Italian is "che cazzo*...?"
    Thanks!

    Re: What the f***

    In Greek:
    «Τι στο διάολο;»
    ti sto ði'aolo?
    lit. "what the devil?"
    or
    «Τι στο καλό;»
    ti sto ka'lo?
    lit. "what rightly (ironically) [has happened]?"
    Both are not considered offensive (perhaps the first one is mildly offensive)

    Bulgarian: Какво по дяволите? ("what the devil?"). Not sure if it's offensive, most probably isn't.

    Re: What the f***

    In Bosnian and generally BCS there would probably be several ways of saying this. One that comes to mind would be

    Koji kurac? (What the d*ck?) - vulgar

    Re: What the f***

    In Turkish we say
    Bu ne halt? (somthing like what the heck?)
    Bu ne saçmalık? (lit. what rubbish is that?)
    I don't remember any sweary phrase now.

    Re: What the f***

    In Czech - putting "kurva" (whore), "do prdele" (into ass), "do píči" (into cunt), "do hajzlu" (into toilet) in the sentence. These words are vulgar. There exist non-vulgar expressions too.

    f.e.
    Co to kurva je? - What the fuck is that? (lit. What it whore is?)

    Turkish:
    We may use the following:

    Hay sikeyim (Literally something like "I let myself f*** it"). "Hay" is some kind of exclamation.

    Those are rather light. To match the register of the English expression, I'd suggest "Que caralho?" (lit. What the cock?) or "Foda-se!" (lit. Fuck it!) Needless to say that these are quite vulgar.

    It can also be: ¿Qué carajo...? ¿Qué mierda...? ¿Qué puta...? it depends on the country.

    Japanese is too polite to have a vulgar expression for that . You can say: 何だってんだ!nan datten da (lit. something like ''why'' with emphasis) どうなってんだ!dounatten da(lit: similar to the other but instead of 'why' it is ''how'') いったい何を!ittai nani wo (lit: what on earth..) - it's an adverb-. Japanese doesn't have a strong expression for that, so it seems.

    To be offensive/vulgar:
    Mandarin: 他妈的 (ta ma de) - literally his mother's= fuck. Can be used with any word practically or on its own.
    Cantonese: 撚 (lan - sounds like lun) - literally a vulgar word for penis = fuck. Same as above, but not on its own.
    Cantonese: 屌你老母 (diu nei lou mou) - literally fuck your mom. Usually used on its own.
    No duden en corregirme. ¡Muchas gracias!

    In Hungarian you can use more vulgar words:

    Mi a picsa / picsát ... [coño]
    Mi a fasz / faszt.. [cazzo]
    Mi a szar / szart... [shit]
    Mi a fene / fenét... [damn] less vulgar
    Mi a franc / francot.. [damn] less vulgar

    *first nominative, second accusative...and you can combine the suffixes.
    [ɒkinɛk humorɒ vɒn, mindɛnˤtud, ɒkinɛk niŋʧ, mindɛnrɛ ke.pɛʃ]
