English term or phrase: pussy clot
Bonjour,
how would you render in French "pussy clot" and as well "blood clot"?
my context is that it was an insult from a Black inmate to another inmate.
merci!

conard


Explanation:
Robert & Collins : clot (figurative) : Brit ** pejorative = person ballot * m , cruche * f

Et la racine "con" de conard fait référence à "pussy", sur un registre plus vulgaire. Donc, on a ainsi les deux, l'idée de la bêtise, et la connotation sexuelle injurieuse.

Pour "blood clot", je pense qu'on peut aussi bien prendre n'importe quel synonyme de "con" ou "conard"... Le Robert donne le choix :
couillon, enflure, enfoiré...

Oui, trouver un équivalent car "caillot de con" n'existe pas en français, mais j'avais pensé à un équivalent : "raclure de bidet".

Ou encore :
"résidu de fausse couche".

Asker: Merci à vous. je dois chercher dans ce registre, car conard est trop "poli", le mot a perdu de son "mordant" "caillot de con"? merci encore (et dire que c'est dans un jugement, canadien il est vrai)

Asker: pas mal "raclure de bidet". merci à vous.

Asker: "résidu de fausse couche" c'est encore mieux, merci
