As foreigners in Thailand, we always do this and sometimes it’s embarrassing for us. It can also happen that you are completely unaware that those dirty English words have a very innocent Thai meaning to it. We have listed down a couple of dirty English yet innocent Thai words.
Fuk! Fuktong! Fukmeaw! Fukmee!!!
I am sure you just giggled after reading that but Fuk is the most common Thai word. Fuk in Thai refers to any kind of gourd or squash. Tong means pumpkin and meaw means chayote. The best one is Fukmee, but in thai it only means something like ‘having enough gourd’.
