If you type “fuck” or “shit” into Google’s new What Do You Love? service you are adorably redirected to “kittens” instead. I dug through their source code and extracted Google’s complete list of unspeakables, embedded below.

    There’s also a disabled Kanye West easter egg in the source code, which would display these shutter shades.

  2. Aram says:

    wow!! awesome poetry jamie!! love all these variations on a single term, when and where is the public reading of this?!? ;)

  3. Teepo says:

    I almost think it’s offensive that in all that list is hidden this word:


    What the hell is wrong with that?!

    Also… it has “dink” in the list. What the hell is wrong with THAT?!!

  4. […] Wilkinson extracted Google’s official list of bad words by examining the source code for the new What Do You Love? service. […]

  6. w_rodman says:

    the word “dink” is an old racial epithet. us soldiers in vietnam used to call all vietnamese “dinks”

  7. Adam says:

    lol. Many words still missing.
    Bosoms, bewbs etc.

  8. […] Google’s Official List of Bad Words […]

  9. “God” is in fact in the list, but the code using the list transforms the search string to lower case before it checks. This may be a case of religious sabotage.

  10. […] Džejmi Dubs (Jamie Dubs) je objavio Google zvaničnu listu zabranjenih reči koju je izvadio iz koda wdyl stranice. E sad, Å¡ta se naj najviÅ¡e traži/voli na netu? E to ne […]

  11. Roel says:

    these words may be banned by google in America, they are not banned in the Netherlands. Why? You guys also have freedom of speech in your constitution.

  14. Thanks for the inspiration – here’s a derived speed project, making the unspeakables heard: Talk Dirty to Me

  15. ryxxui says:

    Roel- the Freedom of Speech in our Constitution guarantees individuals the right to their own free speech. Google, as a corporation, has every right to not allow these words as input to this program, and it is not a violation of our First Amendment.

  18. Telegram Sam says:

    Google doesn’t want you to love sex, but at least they’re not interfering with anyone’s natural impulse to love smoking crack, committing arson and torturing kittens.

  19. […] to a list that’s making its way around the tubes. The list was created by Jamie Dubs of F.A.T. fame, and it features just about every kind of sexual-related euphemism you can […]

  23. Jonathon says:

    Pooey Bumhole works a treat too

  24. Telegram Sam says:

    Verified collateral damage: film director Alex Cox, science fiction author Philip K. Dick, comedian Dick Van Dyke, 1956 motion picture or 1977 Iggy Pop album Lust for Life, painter/illustrator Josh “Shag” Agle, fashion designer Vera Wang, and confectioner Willy Wonka.

  25. Jim Bob says:

    You can still look up Mianus. The word that is not my actual… you get the idea

  26. datakid says:

    Heh. You should try plugging in vaginas. Lolarific:

    Explore vaginas in 3D
    Find vaginas nearby
    Watch videos of vaginas
    Translate ‘vaginas ’ into 57 languages
    Access vaginas on the web, faster
    Call someone about vaginas
    Organize a debate about vaginas
    Measure popularity of vaginas on the web
    Alert me about vaginas

    by far the best:
    Scour the earth for vaginas

  27. It’s not just futile, it’s actually counterproductive. Any searches for ‘De Cock’, a famed dutch (fictional) detective is thwarted, while searches for “kutwijf”, “teringlijer”, “reetkever”, “arschloch” or “filio da puta” and other (non-english) pejoratives results in an invitation to start a discussion-group or to phone someone about it.

  32. mark ireland says:

    Mind you tho, it doesn’t block words like Bomb, or how to make bombs, crack pipes, and marijuana

  33. amanda says:

    ‘dead children’ and ‘sodomy’ work just fine.

  34. Daniel says:

    How’d “lmfao” end up there? It’s a staple of online communication!

  36. Raffi says:

    Looks like they’ve switched to querying a URL in the background. E.g., This keeps the list hidden. The script is, search for “profanity”. Curiously is still permitted, revealing a regional bias.

  37. Leonardo Boiko says:

    • Pigfucker? Are we listing every possible +fucker?
    • “buceta” (Portuguese for “cunt”). Why this single Portuguese swearword when the whole rest of the list is English?
    • Google doesn’t want you to love“homo”, “dykes” or “gaysex”.

  38. Mikko says:

    I like that boobs with 2, 3, 4, 5 or 7 O’s are bad, but boooooobs is fine :–)

  40. trainman261 says:

    am I the only one who noticed they have “kondum” and “kondums” on their list but not “condom” or “condoms? And I can stil say fuck your mother whore’s shit. lmmfao. Another word they missed.

  44. […] แต่จะมีใครรู้บ้างว่า มีคำศัพท์ใดบ้างที่ทาง Google คิดว่าเป็นคำหยาบ และไม่สามารถสืบค้นได้ และเมื่อลองพิมพ์คำๆ นั้นไป ระบบจะเปลี่ยนไปสืบค้นไปเป็นคำอื่น อย่างเช่น เมื่อพิมพ์คำว่า Fuck หรือ Shit ลงไป ใน What Do You Love? ระบบจะเปลี่ยนคำๆ นั้นไปเป็น Kittens หรือลูกแมวแทน น่ารักเชียว นอกจากนี้ ยังมีคำศัพท์อื่นๆ ที่แปลกๆ ที่เราไม่คิดว่าจะเป็นคำหยาบ อย่างเช่น Viagra, rimjaw หรือ titwank จริงๆ มีคำศัพท์อีกมากมายครับที่แปลกๆ ลองเข้าไปดูแบบเต็มๆ ได้ที่นี่เลยครับ  […]
