    Er, sorry, it should be ""You're such an asshole", as it's a contraction of "you are"...

    "Stronzo" is the word I've grown to love for those occasions.

    I second Stevo and kittykate. The proposed term is the one which is semantically more equivalent in current (very colloquial) Italian usage.

    On my opinion, there's a little difference. Both are rude words, but I think *c......e* is somewhat stronger.

    Una volta l'ho chiesto anch'io ad un'amica madrelingua e lei me l'ha tradotto letteralmente come :warn:buco di culo:warn:... Noi non lo usiamo, direi che :warn:stronzo:warn: si avvicina di più.

    My two cents:
    :warn:"stronzo":warn: sounds less as a joke, while i would more use :warn:"coglione":warn: or :warn:"cazzone":warn: or :warn:"pirla":warn: joking.
    I think the answer, as usual, differs if you ask a Northern Italian or a Southern Italian.
