Screw This: World's Rudest Cities Revealed


According to location-based social network Foursquare, Manchester, UK; El Paso, Texas; and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania top the list of the world’s rudest and most salty-tongued cities.

By combing the tips users leave upon checking in at locations for curse words, engineers were able to drill down into data and discover which towns were most foul-mouthed. While findings apply only to English-speaking cities with over 1,000 submitted tips, blue-blooded patriots will be proud to note that American cities occupied 18 of the top 20 slots.

Top-ranking candidates also include the likes of Bloomington, Illinois; Tempe and Scottsdale, Arizona; and Portland, Orgeon, with Los Angeles and New York surprisingly falling far behind peaceful locales like Orange, California and Boca Raton, Florida.
