Je pense que "patate" est le mot le plus amusant.

Pas au Québec, c’est sûr.


Fun fact: it is kind of a cute insult in France when you want to call someone stupid in a relatively friendly way.

Does that have to do with the slight resemblance to the words “pas” and “tête”?

Kalzem: I’m told that it’s an insult, because potatoes are bland, round, and the least interesting part of dinner. The only thing that’s vaguely similar is that I have heard people insult civil servants (fonctionnaires) as “Twinkies”, which is a bland, shapeless, cake sold as a snack.
