Didn't a British guest character once call someone a 'wanker'? I think it was cut from telly but it was defo on the video release of whatever episode it was that I can't quite remember now.

Edit: Just googled it, it was U2 in Trash of the titans.

Quite a strong word to use in a show like this.

Also notice they've used shite once, wanking and piss.

Blimey.

That's nothing.  On one of The Simpsons DVDs, which I own, there's a fully animated deleted scene/outtake where one of the guest stars says "fuck", uncensored!  Makes me wonder if it accidentally slipped through the cracks of the ratings board because I'm pretty sure that it shouldn't be on a family targeted DVD.  I'm glad that it is though.

Wank/er/ing is meaningless in America, they just don't use the word.

This was true at the time that the episode was made but no longer holds true.  Americans have adopted the word 'wanker' from us Brits over the past few years and its usage is becoming more and more ubiquitous over there.  This annoys me to an inordinate extent.  Fuck off with stealing our swear words!

At least they can pronounce 'wanker', which I more than I can say for 'twat'.

It was used very effectively in This is Spinal Tap.

Aye, but they were American actors (flawlessly) portraying British characters, so it gets a free pass.

My beef is with the general American public adopting our swear word as their own.  It's far from being among the worst crimes of cultural appropriation admittedly, but it's still cultural appropriation all the same.  Just rubs me up the wrong way.

Christopher Guest is British-American, as far as I’m aware.

I’m also yet to hear anyone say “wanker” in a decade of North American living, although the pronunciation of “twat” leaves a lot to be desired.

I've heard Americans say "wank" and "wanker". They sounded as comfortable as I did when I taught an English class that, for some reason, was on the topic of Japanese mountains.

Yep.  It's definitely a thing.  I've heard an increasing number of Americans using that word on various podcasts and whatnot over the past few years.

There's just not enough words for masturbation in the American language, they have to steal ours. (Although Flanders' favorite word "diddle" means "wank" too.)

Do the Americans even use 'wank' as meaning masturbation though?

"Well, it was an evil game."

I find I recite one of these to myself at least once a week, because they're apt for when you got something wrong, or when you add an offensive twist to a joke everyone was enjoying just fine without you. Unfortunately, they're too obscure to work as references in most settings.
