Ok, maybe your French is pretty good by now, or at least you can get by. There’s one thing that the textbooks won’t teach you, though: the weird and wonderful language of French insults. Check out our list to expand your repertoire.

Has a French (so-called) friend ever called you a "vache espagnole" (a Spanish cow) or, worse, a "lavette" (dish cloth)?

The chances are you haven't got a clue what they are on about or you've got completely the wrong end of the stick. 

To help you out and amuse you The Local has put together a list of some of the weirdest of all French insults. Use with caution. You have been warned.
