Yes. It's become a comparatively mild one but you still wouldn't really use it when, say, addressing a customer - especially not an elderly one.
Depends on who says it the older generations do not like it but younger ones use it. Its not liked if used with the word Hell so if you say Bloody Hell and your in ear shot of the older generations you do get tuts.
Only once a month
From what I understand, the origin was "By Our lady". (the queen)? It's just used now for emphasis, I believe.
It's not classed as a curse word, but more of a moderately irritated word to emphasize your point. I use it alot. "Where are my bloody keys?!?"
yeah but not a strong one!
yes but not considered that offensive today given the choice of alternatives regularly used. We usually say bloody hell, bloody nuisance or similar often there is no aggression associated with its use
Its a very mild one,normally used with 'hell' after it.... in film rating terms its a PG swear word.
Yeah it could be for anything, see something amazing 'bloody hell look at that' or smack thumb with hammer.. so yeah slightly emphasized amazement or frustration but without true profanity.
Sort of, but not a major one - I was allowed to say it more or less as soon I could talk.
You got asterixed out by EP mafia types, so I'm buggered if I know what you asked...
Ha ha - it's not often I get such a direct comment; ahem, let me put my teeth back in. Well I wouldn't use it in church, lady, but it's a fairly standard word on the street and in pubs and with my Dad, etc - hell I even do it sometimes when I get bored.
Yes, I noticed too that British people say bloody a lot!
Nah, it's not. I've seen kids use it, but I don't think it's a popular word anymore.
I think its the same as the F bomb.
no its not
someone told me that, but it might not be true. Let a english person answer that.
Ok, good to know. I wasn't trying to a know it all. Haha.
