American comedian David Fulton learned today that while the word “wanker” (as its said here in the States) is a B-level slag, but in the UK, it’s an A-level swear word. How did he learn this? He said it on a national, morning television show. It was so bad, that in addition to profusely apologizing on air, the BBC issued a formal apology. “Unfortunately, a guest used a swearword live on-air this morning. Both Sian and Bill [the show hosts] apologised immediately and again at the end of the interview. We are sorry for any offence caused.”
